The man puts on a really great show. He has the most energy of anyone I've ever seen, and the crowd involvement was out of control. The whole arena had the diamonds in the air. I've seen Ye live before, and he didn't disappoint, but this was a whole other level. A-Trak was ok on the 1s and 2s, but he fucked up Slow Jamz once, and the live orchestra was a nice touch.

Highlights
Him runng out to Touch the Sky - you could just tell dude was on top of the world, people were going nuts.
New Workout Plan - did the whole techno part - I was high and it was a lot of fun to clap along.
Get 'Em High - between him and Common bouncing around on stage and the beat rocking I thought the house was gonna come down. He needs to do this song at every show he ever does the rest of his life.
Hey Mama - His Mom was in the building for the night and he sang it right to her in the front row
All Falls Down - "And George Bush getting paid off of all of that" - people seemed to like that.
Through The Wire - The ROC is in the building
Slow Jamz - The entire arena singing along, I thought they were gonna bring out Twista but it didn't happen. So Ye went to his second verse from CD and nobody knew it.
Jesus Walks - If you've been to a Kanye show, you know how incredible this song is live. If not, my words can't do it justice - go see him. This, Touch the Sky & Get 'Em High are worth the price of admission alone.
Diamonds - <>

Lowlights
Addiction/Late back to back - these cuts are alright, but they sort of put the crowd to sleep. I should've gone and gotten another mini pizza.
Common - He ROCKED Get 'Em High, then did Go and left. I wanted dude to at least do a couple of his hits, people were fiending for him to come back out.
Bring Me Down - He should've done this earlier with all the songs that no one really digs
Celebration - Ditto
Diamonds - He hadn't brought out anyone big and we were all waiting for it. So when he paused after "What's up with you and Jay man is y'all okay" the entire arena held their collective breath. Then he just kept rapping. Sort of a letdown.

All in all, a tremendous concert, I had a great time, and y'all should all throw down for the tickets. You will have a good time.

the techno part/hand clap of "new workout plan" is the illest....doing it live makes the song that much more enjoyable
