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.

If you need all of that equipment and visuals to distract your audience... I mean perform... seems to me like you are just attempting to deflect everyone's attention away from your obvious lack of talent/stage presence and those horrible lyrics. You might as well do us all a favor and just cancel what's left of your career because it's as dead as that pathetic ass look in Kim's eyes every time she spots a camera.

And by the way.... Kanye seems to be canceling concerts at the same rate that Lamar Odom was missing games. I see a pattern here... a man who is too weak to maintain his own identity speaks volumes.

It seems we living the American dream
The people highest up got the lowest self esteem
The prettiest people do the ugliest things
For the road to riches and diamond rings

Oh, when it all, it all falls down
I'm telling you, ohh, it all falls down

By Kanye West... smh

Another site is reporting low ticket sales and the Krap family didn't want the stadiums shown half empty...since he got with these douches, he can't fill a stadium and his record tanked....Karma is a biatch!

What a wuss. If you are a true performer you should be able to perform without stupid props and explosions. He is a fool and a loser also too are the people who bought tickets to his crap show. Wonder if they will get their money returned to them.

Whats wrong with just getting in front of the people and doing your so called rap? OR are you just having trouble selling tickets?… oh well, we can't understand what your saying anyway when you speak or so call rap.

This is clearly an "act of GOD" to let Yeezus know he don't like him comparing himself to his only begotten son. I wouldn't want to be around Kanye when he gives him another sign ;-)
