UPDATE: Since this article was written, Kanye West has cancelled his tour. However, please enjoy this inside peek into the experience of attending one of his concerts!
GO TO SAINT PABLO! You won’t regret it, I promise. My younger sister is a HUGE Kanye lover and when she found out he was going to be in LA, she begged to go. If I’m being 100% honest, I’m not really a fan of Kanye West out of principle, but I must admit he has very good music. I went to the concert with my sister, cousin’s girlfriend, and sister’s friend on November 1st and we had an amazing time. Like I said before, I don’t know most of Kanye’s songs, but I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. The crowd was super fun and everyone I talked to was really nice, the music is great (obviously), the setup was amazing, and the overall vibe was great. I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend going if you’re a Kanye fan or want a fun experience.
TIPS & IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW
If you have floor tickets, you 100% do not need to get there early for “good seats”. Because the stage moves around the floor (and so do the people), there isn’t a spot that has the best view.
The concert was supposed to start at 8pm, but Kanye didn’t come out until 9:30, so be prepared to wait and maybe have something to do.
