Kanye West, being the genius that he is, knew that he couldn’t simply pop over to London and keep a low profile. Instead, he has packed out his trip to London with what seems like a never ending amount of surprises! But when we say surprises, we’re not talking just about making an ‘appearance’ at one of the top Mayfair nightclubs, or hopping on the London Underground – because let’s face it, that novelty has worn off now right? We’re actually talking about real, exciting surprises!
From turning up at Katie Eary’s London Fashion Week Pop-Up store and turning it into an impromptu album playback party and to performing at the BRIT Awards with Skepta and the rest of Boy Better Know; to surprising fans at the Adidas store on Carnaby Street and handing out free pairs of his brand new Yeezy Boost trainers (I know, we’re super jealous too!) – You think that’s it? Oh, he’s not even done yet!
Yeezy has shocked us all yet again tonight by announcing a surprise London performance at London’s KOKO – which is happening in a few hours! Live Nation made the announcement on their Twitter and put the tickets up for sale at a price of £49.50 and limited each purchase to two tickets per person. Less than an hour later, all of the tickets were sold out.
It’s rumoured that Skepta will be jumping on stage with Kanye once again – and maybe this time they’ll be performing that new material that they’ve been working on together in the studio whilst Yeezy’s been in London Town.
Whatever happens, you know that it’s going to be a show to remember! If you’re one of the lucky one’s who are heading down tonight, have a listen to Skepta’s latest smash ‘Shutdown’ and Kayne’s ‘All Day’ to get you in the mood!
