Our friends at Myspace were in Austin all last weekend covering the Austin City Limits Festival.
Nothing Kanye West does could be classified as typical, so why would his set at Austin City Limits go down that way? In that spirit the final night of his tour supporting My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy was staged as a play in three parts and featured ballet dancing and monologues that showcased that his fantasy is indeed beautiful, dark and, yes, twisted.
West headlined the first night of the festival on Friday by hitting the stage alone save for some bright lights, back-up dancers and a Greek-inspired backdrop. However all of this paled in comparison to West’s elaborate entrance which saw him entering the stage by flying over the crowd in a 50-foot-tall crane as he performed “Dark Fantasy.” Seriously.
