My friend calls me out of the blue telling me to get ready and to be in Hammersmith within the hour. Now if you know me well then you know I don’t like surprises not to add to the fact that its cold outside. However after asking 100 and 1 questions I was told I was going to see Kanye West at the Hammersmith Apollo, obviously this was one surprise I could deal with.
Throughout the show he performed with two very distinctive masks on. One was a wolf’s head which was intricately made from white feathers…a little scary to say the least! The other was a flamboyant crystal encrusted Maison Martin Margiela balaclava style mask which was made especially for Mr. West himself.
As the Watch the Throne concert last year had a lot to offer, Kanye West at the Hammersmith Apollo followed in the shows legacy with visuals and performance. He had numerous images and clips projected onto the plain white backdrop from the ocean, blizzard, woodland scenery and even a flock of birds flying within the sky. Each one breathtaking and made you feel like you was actually there. This was helped by the 4D effects he had including a iced fog machine and simulated snow which went on just a tad bit too long but it was still fun and had the crowd on a buzz.
