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.

Where did this "accident" happen? If there was that much damage there must have been a news report. Has anyone seen it?

Just get on stage with some speakers, grab a mic and SING. Oh, you're a fake and need glitter to distract your dumb fans...

He's definitely a "two-bagger", he creatively used a mask instead of a paper bag. He's genius !!

TMZ, the ticket sales were low. No one wanted to see this egotistical moron. He and his slutty baby momma both have an attitude that their sh*t don' t stink, and everyone has had enough of their "I am better than you" mentality. With his outlandish comments, Kanye makes it very hard to like him and as for Kimmode, enough has been said about her I don't need to get into it again. These 2 just need to go far, far away and stay there, forever. When do those tickets to Mars go on sale?

It is sad that today's entertainers need to have all these special effects and gadgets to perform. Whatever happened to standing on your own ability to perform? SMH!
