Kanye West took the stage last night at the KeyArena in Seattle to kick off his much-anticipated "Yeezus" tour. His first solo trek since 2008's "Glow in the Dark" tour, which also started in Seattle, the concert was a momentous occasion for the Chicago MC. His latest album, Yeezus, topped our list of the best albums of 2013 so far, and with good reason. Forget Jimmy Kimmel and TMZ—Kanye is in his true element on stage, spreading his gospel one city at a time.
Of course, such a painstakingly detailed show doesn't come without hiccups. Doors were scheduled to open last nght at 6:30 p.m. sharp, but according to event staff, Kanye's stage was still being put together at that time. (Mike Dean, producer, engineer and mixing extraordinaire for 'Ye, claimed one of their trucks was stolen.) They finally opened the doors at 8:40 p.m., to the relieved applause of more than 15,000 cold and tired fans—and one eager Complex writer—looking to witness something special.
And we did, to a certain degree. Here are Complex's 10 First Impressions from Opening Night of the "Yeezus" Tour.
