Move over Lady Gaga, there’s a new couture-wearing masked musician in town! Last night (December 28), wearing an all-white ensemble and various masks, Kanye West lit up the stage at Ovation Hall in Atlantic City’s Revel Resort. Making a departure from past performances laden with back-up dancers or knob-turners, Yeezy emerged as a lone wolf and dazzled the 5,500-seat theater in his winter wonderland set, with a plethora of songs and elaborate masks in his first of three consecutive “7 Screen Experience” shows.
The 75-minute concert consisted of newer songs, old hits and a diamond-encrusted Maison Martin Margiela face mask that whipped the crowd into a frenzy. West also donned a Predator-like white mask which the internet has already dubbed “Kanyeti.” Surrounded by video screens that projected frosty images of mountains and icebergs throughout the show, Yeezy opened with “Cold,” which you can watch up top. Head below to see “Mercy,” “Power” and “Heartless.”
Longtime fans weren’t disappointed when they were treated to classic faves “Touch the Sky” and “Good Life.” And the expert showman brought down the house with hits “Gold Digger” and “All of the Lights,” and finally closed out the concert with “All Falls Down.”
