Kanye West Returns to the Stage After Kim Kardashian’s Robbery
Following a brief break after his wife, Kim Kardashian West, was held at gunpoint and tied up inside a Paris hotel last Sunday, Kanye West returned to the stage for his scheduled Saint Pablo tour stop in Chicago on Friday.
According to an eyewitness, the “Famous” rapper took the stage around 9:23 p.m., 1 hour and 23 minutes past schedule. The 39-year-old Chicago native performed until 10:58 p.m., at one point telling the crowd, “It’s good to be home!”
Inside the venue, Kanye performed atop a lifted floating stage, with bright lights surrounding him from all angles. “The lighting was a huge spectacle,” an eyewitness explained. During his performance of “Fade,” the red lights hovering above Kanye even appeared to dance along to the catchy track.
