Kanye West is ready to treat his fans to the concert of a lifetime. At last night’s Pablo Tour opening show, 'Ye floated over the audience to perform his full set and fans totally lost it. More inside…

Kanye West loves to push the envelope, which would explain why he floated over concertgoers during his performance to kick off his Pablo Tour at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana.

If critics thought he had a God complex before...

Last night, Ye hit the stage for the first night of his 39-date Pablo Tour. And fans were in for a surprise. The “Jumpman” rapper performed his whole set on an elevated stage that floated over the audience. He’s always talking about being innovative and “changing the game,” so we’re not surprised.

At one point, Ye had to pause his performance of “Blood on the Leaves” because fans were reaching up trying to grab the stage. Later, a mosh pit of some sort broke out while he was performing his track “Freestyle 4”.

The “Famous” rapper pushed out 31 tracks for his concert, mainly performing music from his most recent LP, The Life of Pablo.

Peep a few clips from his performance below:



After the show….


Yeezy sat down with E! News to dish on how he came up with the stage concept and how long it took.  On camera interviews are rare for Kanye, but since E! is the network home of his Kardashian family, of course he obliged.

"At least eight months of planning for this," he said. "Traveling around the world and meeting with the best stage designers on the globe and having the best stage designers."

The “Ultralight Beam” rapper said he wants to take his concerts to another level for his fans:

"I just wanted people to get into it and have a fun time. Make it not be just about watching the artist but people watching their friends and singing along with the lyrics and just being able to see themselves and their outfits," Kanye explained. "Take the concert experience to another level. It's not just about what you're seeing on the screen or what you're seeing me doing up on the stage, but what you and your friends are doing."

He added,

"I want people to come to the Pablo shows and know it's just going to be the best time they've had in their life.”
