SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Kanye West's Saint Pablo tour this week is generating more headlines than music.
“Press, get ready to write your passive aggressive, LeBron (James) racist comments — get ready, the show is over!” West said before walking off the stage at the Golden 1 Center.
The two songs West sang during the abbreviated show were “Famous” and “Good Morning.”
“I spent $250,” Christian Krebs of Sacramento told the Bee. “I might be a fan of his music, but I’m not a fan of his character.”
The concert was supposed to begin at 9 p.m. local time and did not include an opening act. West took the stage at 10:30 p.m. Fifteen minutes into the show, he began his speech and targeted corporate radio, Google and Facebook. He also said he heard Beyoncé refused to perform at the MTV Video Music Awards unless she won Video of the Year over him, and also urged her husband Jay Z to call him, The Associated Press reported.
Social media buzzed after the cancellation.
As of early Sunday morning, it was unclear if tickets to the show would be refunded, the Bee reported.
