Say what you want about the bloke, but the guy definitely knows how to put on a show.

Kanye West‘s sprawling Saint Pablo US tour kicked off in Indianapolis today, and excited punters keen to worship at the alter of Yeezy were faced with a particularly puzzling scene upon arriving at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

There uh… there didn’t appear to be a stage present.

What the hell could possibly be going on? Was there logistical problems? Did the stage not get set up in time? Was Kanye gonna pull a floor show like he’s a crust punk in a basement somewhere?

Nope. Turns out Ye just casually decided to do the whole damned tour from a stage that was SUSPENDED IN MID FREAKING AIR.

GENIUS ????

That is an entire arena full of people going off their bloody butts as the King holds court 20 feet above them.

‘Course it wasn’t without its issues. Handling security at a de-centralised gig like that one would be an absolute nightmare. But bless his heart, Yeezy knows how to keep the crowd on-side.

Long live the King.
