kanye-west-pablo-tour-3

Kanye West began his “Saint Pablo” North American tour at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, IN, on Thursday night (Aug. 25). The two-hour show, in support of the rapper’s latest album The Life of Pablo, had social media in a frenzy last night. The talk wasn’t due to a long-winded rant or a special guest appearance, instead it was for Kanye’s “missing” stage. Known to deliver classic set designs, Kanye took this tour to new heights, literally, performing on an elevated stage that flew throughout the entire show as fans created a mosh pit below.

The 31-song set included Pablo cuts such as “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1”, “Famous”, “Feedback”, “Highlights” and “30 Hours,” plus guest verses (“Pop Style,” “THat Part”) and classics from past Yeezy albums (“All of the Lights,” “Devil In A New Dress”). The father/designer also took time to issue an apology to Nike CEO Mark Parker for ripping the company in recent years, while thanking adidas for their current partnership.

The two-month trek makes stops in Toronto, Montreal, New York City, Atlanta, Miami, Houston, Chicago, Seattle and Vancouver, before wrapping up on Oct. 29 in Las Vegas.
