Kanye West Kicks Off Yeezus Tour Performing With Jesus

Yeezy returns to form with eye-opening stage theatrics.

Published October 20, 2013

Jesus walks with Kanye West. The rapper kicked off his Yeezus tour in Seattle this weekend, and spared nothing to give his fans a great show. West's set list consisted mostly of tracks from his chart-topping album Yeezus, including "Black Skinhead" and "Blood on the Leaves," but he also ressurected a few of his hits like "Stronger" and "Jesus Walks."

Yeezy scaled a mountain at one point in the show, and even performed a number of his songs with a very special guest — a man dressed up as Jesus Christ.

The self-proclaimed "King of New York," Kendrick Lamar opened up for West, complete with a live band. This is Kanye's first solo tour in five years. He did hit the road in 2011 with Jay Z for their Watch the Throne world tour.  

The next stop on The Yeezus Tour is in San Jose, California on October 22. A scheduled stop in Vancouver on Sunday, October 20 was delayed to October 31. For a complete list of tour dates, click here.
