Kanye West
has pulled the plug on yet another concert -- and TMZ has learned it's because a car crash damaged the stage equipment.

Kanye canceled his Vancouver concert which was scheduled for tonight.  We're told on Wednesday ... a truck carrying a custom-made video truss and a 60-foot circular LED screen crashed and the items were damaged beyond repair.

The destroyed gear is key to Kanye's performance and he has told his people it's so "central to the creative vision ... it's impossible to put on the show."  We're told Kanye "will not compromise on bringing the show as it was originally envisioned and designed to his fans."

Kanye's rep tells us the rapper is also postponing shows in Anaheim, Denver and Minneapolis while new set pieces are being built.

TMZ! Kanye cancelled his Vancouver concert TWICE!

The concert was rescheduled for TODAY and he CANCELLED AGAIN!

That seems fishy!

Rumours are that because the show was not sold-out, he didn't want to perform. There were many tickets still available for the original date (September 20). He cancelled the concert hours before it was about to begin, with the reasons not really explained. Then the next day, Kanye proposed to Kim in San Fran.

There were even more tickets available/more empty seats for his rescheduled Vancouver concert for today. Kind of suspicious, don't you think?

In reference to his own comments about George Bush: Kanye West doesn't care about Vancouver people.

clearly he doesn't want to perform in Vancouver as this was already a make up concert for cancelling the last one a couple weeks ago. Idiot, don't bother coming back

I live in Vancouver and all of the radio/tv stations are saying ticket sales were very poor. I believe that more than Kanye's crap.

The man is too low calibre an act for a city like Vancouver. Compared to the other acts that have performed here, he is an embarassment. The local talent here laughs at this clown. He is much better suited for headlining gigs at amusement parks!

I guess only the real Jesus could have prevented that crash. Kanye makes it so hard to like him and that's why I would never waste my money on him,

Kanye wearing masks on stage... this is so idiotic, words can't describe. He should wear a stop-sign mask.
