Kanye West Webster Hall Show
MUSIC NEWS: KANYE WEST NEWS
Kanye West celebrates his birthday in NYC along with an intended performance of his “The Life Of Pablo” album. West caused hysteria with a last minute announcement of a “surprise” show at Webster Hall.
West was scheduled to headline Governor’s Ball which was canceled due to weather related issues.
The surprise show immediately sold out, and West decided to make sure he could perform for all of the excited fans. The controversial rapper and fashion designer is on video making a phone call asking for someone to phone the mayor of NYC to shut off additional streets. Additionally, the rapper asks that screens are set up outside for the fans that can’t get in.

There is no late show at Webster Hall tonight. Please get home safely.
