Less than a month after the initial announcement, the big day is finally here. Tonight, Kanye West kicks off a planned two-night stint at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles and each concert will find the Chicago legend performing his fourth album, 808s & Heartbreak, in full. Earlier tonight we got a preview of the exclusive merch at the show and now the concert itself has kicked off.
Before the start of the show, early peeks at the stage and surrounding areas seemed to hint at a full orchestra and potential appearances from some—if not all—of 808s & Heartbreak's featured artists, including Kid Cudi, Lil Wayne, and Mr. Hudson.
Check out some of the Twitter and Instagram posts from fans at the show below and follow along for a fan-submitted live stream on Periscope here and here.
