Kanye West continued his trend of holding 'Free, "Secret" Not-Really-Secret" concerts in NYC last night with a Heineken sponsored show in an old Brooklyn Savings Bank at One Hanson Place. The venue, with 63 ft ceilings, set the tone of grandeur, and flashing lights sets the stage. If you missed it, here's video from the show!
The concert kicked off at midnight with an intro from Aziz Anasari. The set included “Dark Fantasy,” “Hell of a Life,” and “Power.” "During "Flashing Lights," he stood on a hydraulic pillar that levitated him ten feet in the air, smoke machine going off below. G.O.O.D Music's Mr. Hudson, Pusha T, CyHi Da Prince, Kid Cudi, and Big Sean all took the stage throughout the night.
Sounds amazing, but Village Voice reports that the sound sucked:
Extending sixty feet in the air, the ceiling probably made even Mr. West feel small and had an unfortunate result for someone who so demands to be heard: the sound was pretty terrible. (It would be no worse than when Q-Tip, during his DJ set opener, said something that might have been a call for people to raise their hands. No one raised their hands.
Kid Cudi seems to get little response when he asks the crowd to say "Suck my dick bitch," which could be more the request than the volume.
Big Sean and Kanye:
So if you didn't make it, you may be better off. Footage will be going up on Vevo with better sound.
