It's been a while since Kanye has performed on a big stage (unless he's doing a cameo performance), but this past weekend in NYC he surprised a crowd of notables as he had a super secret performance lined up at The Box. David Beckham was said to be one of the A-listers in the intimate crowd (that ranged at around 200 guests). They were all ordered to wear suits and evening dresses, and rightly so, considering that Mr. West and his special guest, John Legend, were in their finest attire.
The performance included tracks off of his soon-to-be-released album, as well as a few tracks that he covered by Rihanna and Billy Joel. Halfway through the performance his gal pal, Estelle, hopped on stage and they performed her hit single, American Boy, together. Could this be a sign that Kanye may take his show back to the basics and to a smaller stage? Absolutely not. If there's one thing the man won't do is take his game back to the basics. If anything the stage will only get bigger and brighter.
