After attending the Saint Pablo Tour concert on Thursday, there is no question that Kanye West has raised the bar yet again. Even in the midst of thousands of concertgoers raving from pure adrenaline and excitement, it’s still impossible to miss the details that have been carefully crafted for the show. Theatrical fog filled the entire arena floor where General Admission ticket holders were able to move around freely in sync with Ye’s mobile stage. The stage that carried Kanye portrayed a spaceship theme that levitated throughout the entire arena giving an up-close and personal feel to his audience. The free-spirited vibe was all set and fans, both youthful and seasoned all had similar ideas in mind. Let’s wear our favorite Saint Pablo fashion t-shirt, scream out our favorite songs as loud as we can, dance and feel liberated all night.
The feeling of liberation was certainly felt as everyone sang along to hits off of his latest album, The Life of Pablo. West made sure not to disappoint his die-hard fans by bringing back some of his classic hits such as “Jesus Walks” and “All of the lights” featuring Rihanna. The 90-minute show was complete with a birthday dedication video to Kanye’s wife and media giant, Kim Kardashian, who recently turned 36 years old. Although Kim was not in attendance at the concert per usual, she has slowly been reappearing in public after she endured a highly broadcast robbery that took place in Paris earlier this month.
If anyone had forgotten, they quickly remembered that although they were there to be entertained by Kanye through music, he is climbing the chart as a successful fashion designer these days. Kanye, reportedly worth $145 million dollars, has influenced an entire generation of people wearing jackets, t-shirts and Yeezy sneakers and boots, all designed by the rapper himself. The t-shirts give off a familiar feeling from the Old English font that displays taglines like “Saint Pablo,” and “GENERAL ADMISSION”.
Kanye will be performing throughout the remainder of 2016. Find his next tour date here and enjoy the show!
