We went to the Kanye West show last night and it was just so so. We’d been looking forward to this show for a while so maybe we over-hyped it in our head.
When you label the show as part of the Glow In The Dark tour, having seen footage of the US tour (with Kanye, N*E*R*D, Lupe Fiasco and Rhiana and an amazing stage setup) you think you are in for something special.
The Shanghai show was mad stripped-down. We heard Louis Vuitton China wouldn’t sponsor the Louis Vuitton Don and Nike also didn’t feel it, so maybe there were budget issues. Kanye just didn’t seem that into it and songs were played back to back with almost no interaction with the crowd.
On the flipside the music was really really great and the sound system didn’t suck too much. Tracks like Gold Digger, American Boy and Stronger killed it.
