When I went: November 2008
Location: The O2, London
Performers: Kanye West (supported by Estelle, Mr Hudson & The Library, Santogold and Syren)
Creative team: Kanye West’s team
Approximate price: £50
Special points: Effects
Best bit: Flashing Lights
If I could change one thing: Earlier start so we could hear Stronger
Estelle was a good support act (I don’t remember much about the others), but unfortunately we had to wait a long time for Kanye to actually start his. We didn’t live in London and had to get back to another city so it was annoying that we had to leave before the end of the set and miss Kanye’s performance of Stronger, one of his best songs.
However, there were plenty of highlights in the set we did see, including Flashing Lights and Drunk And Hot Girls, which worked much better onstage. This show used most of the Graduation album, one of Kanye’s best. The actor Nicholas Hoult was also in the audience near us and seemed to be enjoying the show.
