Saint Pablo Tour Chicago

We got a chance to see the opening show in Indianapolis, and the show has transformed a bit since its opening night. West did away with many of the lengthy instrumental interludes, and the concert was much more succinct, as songs flowed from one to another seamlessly. The heart of the spectacle stayed true, as Kanye drifted from end to end of the stadium, his disciples moshed below him. West was vigorously focused and energetic, and commanded his hometown crowd with ease.

 

RSVP enlisted two of Chicago’s premiere photographers, ‘Swopes’ and ‘Trashhand’ to capture photos of the spectacle, while we took care of the video. Check out a gallery of their photos below and the video above for a full recap, and in case you missed it, we took on Gucci Mane at UIC.

Neon and Nonsense Episode 15: Saint Pablo Tour, NYFW, and more

The latest edition of Neon and Nonsenseā„¢ is packed with everything the RSVP Gallery team has been up to over the past month. We traveled to the opening night of Kanye West’s Saint Pablo Tour, North Coast Music Festival for some of our favorite performers, and New York Fashion Week to see the latest newest seasons. Per usual, Kanye failed to disappoint, as he unveiled his floating, Transformer-like stage with a constant mosh pit underneath. We caught some of our favorite acts at North Coast, including a surprise appearance from Chicago’s own Vic Mensa. At New York Fashion Week we were front row for Alexander Wang, where he unveiled his new collaboration with Adidas, as well as Yeezy Season 4, and Travi$ Scott’s pop-up at Bape New York.

 

Check out the full episode above for tons of rare footage and be on the lookout for our next episode. In case you missed it, the Neon and Nonsenseā„¢ took a trip to Lollapalooza and more in our last episode.

Kanye West took to his twitter to make an abrupt announcement which simply read “TOUR.” This was followed by a link to his website which revealed his next showcase. In just three months, West will amass 32 shows in North America, kicking off in Indianapolis on August 25th. Ye will make appearances in 21 states, supplemented by two additional shows in Canada. Most notably, he will play back-to-back shows in Chicago on October 7th & 8th at the United Center and All-State Arena, respectively.

 

His last outing, the Yeezus tour, ended in 2014 and spanned 45 performances from October 2013 to September 2014. It received iconic status for West’s avant-garde performance approach and its success was only eclipsed by Paul McCartney’s ‘Out There!’ tour. Opening acts included the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Drake, A Tribe Called Quest, Pusha T, Travi$ Scott, and E-40.

 

No information has been released on the artists, if any, who will accompany West on the tour. Tickets go on sale June 18th and will be available through Live Nation. Check out the images above for a full list of dates.
