Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West may have needed some baggier pants on the opening night of his Yeezus tour in Seattle as photos of him experiencing an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction have surfaced.
In the photos, Mr. West is clearly shown performing with a noticeable rip on the interior of his pants.
Kanye West went full balls out during his concert in Seattle this weekend -- with a crotchel wardrobe malfunction, crazy masks and a cameo from Jesus! KW's pants split right down the middle during one of his songs -- but Kanye didn't seem bothered and moved on like it was no big deal (It looks like he's got underwear on, so it wasn't like it was full dong exposure or anything). But the real story is the facewear -- ya gotta check out the pics. (TMZ)
The highly anticipated nationwide run officially kicked off over the weekend.
Kanye West kicked off his Yeezus world tour in Seattle on Saturday night, According to reports on Twitter and Kanye To The, he played a 27-song, two-hour set which encompassed material from his entire discography. Included were the live debuts of Yeezus tracks "Hold My Liquor, "I'm In It", and "Guilt Trip", in addition to "Street Lights" from 808s and Heartbreak. He closed his show with the dynamic one-two-three-four punch of "Jesus Walks" into "Flashing Lights" into "All of the Lights" into "Bound 2?. (Consequence of Sound)
Prior to Yeezy coming out and facing off with a Jesus lookalike, West Coast sensation Kendrick Lamar opened up the night.
The stage design included a giant mountain on which Kanye rapped from. An equally massive video screen above the mountain flashed elaborate visuals, including animations of the rapper. He was frequently joined by a group of backing dancers, and at one point, a Jesus Christ look-alike also took the stage alongside Yeezus. It's worth noting that the show began two hours later, reportedly due to an equipment truck being stolen. Kendrick Lamar served as opener and performed a nine-song set. (Consequence of Sound)
According to reports, a previously scheduled Sunday (October 20) night Canada concert was nixed.
Kanye West's second Yeezus tour stop was supposed to be tonight at Vancouver's Rogers Arena. However, the arena has announced via Twitter that the show has now been postponed, instead taking place on October 31. This means that the Yeezus tour's second date will be on Tuesday, October 22, in San Jose at the SAP Center. The first date of the Yeezus tour took place last night in Seattle. Kanye is being accompanied on tour by Kendrick Lamar for most of the dates on his first solo tour in five years. (Complex)
