"Kanye Sux" - Bonnaroo 2008 (cred)
F Kanye West

The Grammy winner walked onto the festival stage nearly two hours past his scheduled 2:45 a.m. performance time Sunday morning and was greated by bleary-eyed fans' chorus of boos and chants of "Kanye sucks." [E Online]

Ken Weinstein, a spokesman for the annual festival held on a 700-acre site south of Nashville, said the delay was simply a matter of unloading the Pearl Jam stage (the band went an hour past its scheduled end time, playing until about 1:15 a.m.) and loading the West stage. [AP]

People were mad about the set time. Now Kanye West has reacted to the controversy with an angry blog posting. More pictures, and his ENTIRE ANGRY MESSAGE, BELOW....

Bonnaroo 2008 (cred)
F Kanye West

I am sick of negative people who just sit around trying 2 plot my downfall... Why???? I understand if people don't like me because I like me or if people think tight clothes look gay or people say I run my mouth to much, But this Bonnaroo thing is the worst insult I've ever had in my life. This is the most offended I've ever been... this is the maddest I ever will be. I'm typing so fucking hard I might break my fucking Mac book Air!!!!!!!! Call me any name you want.... arrogant, conceited, narcissistic, racist, metro, fag whatever you can think of.... BUT NEVER SAY I DIDN'T GIVE MY ALL! NEVER SAY I DIDN'T GIVE MY ALL! THIS SHOWS NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU TRY TO BE GOOD AT SOMETHING THERE WILL BE PEOPLE THERE TO LIE ABOUT YOU AND BRING YOU DOWN! LIKE WAYNE SAYS PLEASE DON'T SHOOT ME DOWN CAUSE I'M FLYING! I'M FUCKING HURT BY THIS ONE. ALL I CARE ABOUT ARE THE FANS. JUST SAY THIS OUT LOUD IN A ROOM FULL OF PEOPLE, "KANYE DOESN'T CARE ABOUT GIVING A GOOD PERFORMANCE." CAN ANYONE HONESTLY SAY THAT ????????? HAS ANYONE EVEN TAKEN THE TIME TO AT LEAST DO THE MATH??? BONNAROO SHOULD HAVE RELEASED A STATEMENT IN MY DEFENSE BUT SINCE THEY HAVEN'T LET'S BREAK DOWN THE WALLS ON THIS TRUMAN SHOW AND LET YOU KNOW WHAT REALLY OCCURRED!!! FOR OVER A MONTH WE WENT BACK AND FORTH ON WETHER OR NOT WE COULD EVEN FIT MY STAGE AT THE FESTIVAL. ONE DAY THEY WOULD SAY YES... WE'D SEND THEM OUR SPECS THEN THEY THEY'D SAY OK... THEN THEY WOULD SEND SPECS BACK THAT DIDN'T FIT THE STAGE. WE WERE OBVIOUSLY DEALING WITH FUCKING IDIOTS WHO DIDN'T REALLY HAVE THE CAPACITY TO REALLY PUT ON THIS SHOW PROPERLY. THEY TRIED 2 GIVE ME A TIME SLOT WERE IT WAS STILL LIGHT OUTSIDE ... I HAVE A FUCKING LIGHT SHOW DUMB ASS, IT'S NOT CALLED GLOW IN THE DARK FOR NO REASON SQUID BRAINS! MY PEOPLE WORKED OUT A COMPROMISED STAGE PLOT AND A 3AM TIME SLOT AND I AGREED. FAST FOWARD TO THE DAY OF THE SHOW. MY PRODUCTION MANAGER TRIED TO LOAD IN FOR 24 HOURS BEFORE I WENT ON STAGE BUT THE FESTIVAL WOULDN'T ALLOW US TO DO ANYTHING UNTILL PEARL JAM LEFT THE STAGE. PEARL JAM ENDED ONE HOUR
LATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AT THAT POINT WE'RE RACING AGAINST THE SUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AT 4:20AM DON COMES BACK 2 THE BUS AND TELLS ME, " IT WOULD TAKE 45 MORE MINUTES TO PUT ALL YOUR PYRO IN!" I SAY I HAVE TO GET OUT THERE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE . I HIT THE STAGE AND PEOPLE HAD BEEN THROWING SHIT ON THE STAGE AND HAD ACTUALLY HIT THE JANE SCREEN WITH, I GUESS BOTTLES OR SOMETHING AND HAD BROKEN MY FUCKING SCREEN. REMEMBER WHEN YOU WERE A SHORTY AND WATER WOULD HIT THE TV?????? WHEN I GOT 2 "THROUGH THE WIRE" I STEPPED ON THE FRONT PART OF MY STAGE AND THERE WAS SO MUCH LIQUID ON THE STAGE I COULDN'T MOVE WITHOUT SLIPPING. I HAD TO ADJUST MY WHOLE PERFORMANCE STYLE BECAUSE OF IT. A FEW MORE SONGS IN AND THE SONG WAS ON IT'S WAY UP.. I CUT A FEW SONGS FROM THE SET BECAUSE I WANTED PEOPLE 2 EXPERIENCE STRONGER WHILE THERE WAS STILL SOME DARKNESS TO PERFORM IT IN. I'VE STRUGGLED WITH STRONGER FROM IT'S CONCEPTION. REMEMBER LAST SUMMER WHEN I CANCELED SOME TV APPEARANCES. IT WAS BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT TO PERFORM STRONGER IN THE DAYTIME. ANYONE WHO CAME TO THE GLOW TOUR CAN UNDERSTAND WHY I WANTED PEOPLE TO SEE IT PROPERLY. IT BROKE MY HEART THAT I COULDN'T GIVE THESE FANS STRONGER IN IT'S GREATEST FORM... BY THE TIME I GOT TO STRONGER IT WAS DAYTIME AND IT BROKE MY HEART. I'M SORRY TO EVERYONE THAT I DIDN'T HAVE THE ABILITY 2 GIVE THE PERFORMANCE I WANTED TO. I'M SORRY... SOMETIMES I GO 2, 3 DAYS W/O SLEEP WORKING ON MY PERFORMANCE... I HAVE TO ICE MY KNEES AFTER EVERY SHOW AND THEY HURT WHEN I WALK THROUGH THE AIRPORT... HAVING AN EXPENSIVE STAGE CUTS MY PAYDAY IN HALF... CALL ME WHAT YOU WANT BUT NEVER SAY I DIDN'T GIVE MY ALL!!! [Kanye West]

look, i understand that it sucks that he didn't have enough time for set-up but what was he thinking? He should be angry at his production for not realizing that a legendary band would go past their set time at bonnaroo. Too bad, Kanye. I stayed for 3 songs and they weren't magical - maybe it was because the sun was peaking.

This guy has really gone off the fucking deep end. Are you kidding me with this rant. Your knees hurt? From what you shithead prancing around a stage for 2 hours?????? Oh im so sorry for you.
He is everything he says he is in that rant and i dont think he gives his all in a performance
Dude get over it, your stage show is nothing that great. The stronger performance is nothing that special. Artists have been using lights and video and pyro long before you ever came around.
Your a fucking rap artist who is putting all that shit behind you on stage to compensate for being nothing more than a dude yelling into a mic over beats. Jesus Christ.

I know why those knees are sore!! lmao

Posted by Anonymous | June 25, 2008 2:24 PM

both ted leo and pearl jam are awesome. no need to compare. this was some commenter on stereogum who apparently worked the show:


Your not the first person I've heard say that, so I kinda feel the need to jump in and correct this. I've worked two shows of Kanye's now. I worked the one in Atlanta and the one for Bonnaroo, his two most hated shows yet. I'll give you a break down by show...
His whole tour: That "glow in the dark setup" NEVER glowed in the dark. He was not only too cheap to get crew shirts made for the local crews, but his touring crew didn't get tour shirts either. Instead, he made a couple dozen for his friends to wear as all access passes. Most shows assign locals to different production departments to work at loading in and out. they keep track by colored shirts or paper wristbands. He was too cheap to allow paper wristbands. He also opted for the cheapest catering service in each city for his crews... All this among other things
Atlanta: Came on late as always. Bonnaroo wasn't the first time. It's practically an every show thing with him because he's always backstage complaining about something. Hit his show off talking about how the media and everyone portrays him to be arrogant and all high and mighty and crap, blah blah... "Fuck you all. I am. Deal with it"... Ends his show off by posting a picture of Hillary Clinton on his video screan and talking about how America doesn't need another white bitch in office, more blah blah. Puts up a picture of Obama and goes on and on about needing a black man in office, it's past due, etc... Nothing political in his spiel, just race... On top of all that, his show just sucked
Bonnaroo: He was actually slotted for second stage. If you know anyone that went to the festival and came back with a schedule, look at it. They never had time to reprint. He bitched about not being second stage material and demanded to be on mainstage. Had nothing to do with his NON glowing setup. For comparisson on the next point: Metallica showed up with about three of their 17 tour trucks loaded in right before their show and right back out when they were done. Kanye brought in all but two of his 20ish trucks. His one lift that he couldn't do without was so heavy that mainstage (that huge STEEL stage) had to be reenforced to hold it. The stage itself had to be extended and modified to set his stuff up early and be able to move it around. By the time his show day came around, we had been already setting his show up for more that four days. Bear in mind, that whole time his shit was on stage taking up space for other bands to potentially use. Next, when it came time for Pearl Jam to come off, his stuff still wasn't ready to go onstage. Phill Lesh cut early because he was tired of hearing Kanye bitch that he refused to play while other people were onstage. With the festival then dead of music, Pearl Jam kept playing per those of us backstage. No racism involved in that choice. Blame us, the crew, if you really still give a shit. When Kanye's stuff was ready to go onstage, he then sat on his bus insisting that he be allowed his entire lighting rig (remember the couple trucks he didn't bring). He wanted to postpone the show to take down the Bonnaroo lighting and bring all the rest of his own in to replace it (a few hour process). Another crew friend of mine made the call that the roof wouldn't support the weight of his rig just to shut him up. SHOW FUCKING SUCKED... It was the smallest mainstage crowd in Bonnaroo history... If he ever wants to go on tour again, he's not going to find people to set it up. Everyone that's ever worked with him is done with his crap.

Posted by Anonymous | June 25, 2008 2:24 PM

man, kanye got a raw deal on this one. that's really unfair.

Posted by MonsoonSeason | June 25, 2008 2:27 PM

How does Pearl Jam go one hour over? That's fucking outrageous and unprofessional, especially since they knew they had another act going on after them. Bonnaroo should have pulled the plug on them.

If Kanye wasn't so insistent on having to play at the main stage, this might not have been an issue....as it is they had to juggle around about 3-4 set times to accommodate him. I don't think stage setups are any big deal...they didnt have any trouble with the Flaming Lips the year before.

if you read the comment that that guy posted on stereogum who apparently worked the show it would indicate that pearl jam was asked to go another hour b/c kanye wasn't ready.

pearl jam has always been known to be like such a "band of the people" do you honestly think they'd knowingly go for an hour longer than their set time.

Posted by Anonymous | June 25, 2008 2:48 PM

that guy that posted from stereogum at that part becomes unclear what the fuck was going on, how does Phil Lesh play into this? Also didnt pearl jam go on at 8:30? so that means they played for 4 and a half hours?

Long Live Pearl Jam

Posted by Anonymous | June 25, 2008 3:10 PM

I was there and this is is what i know. Pearl jam went on on time at 10:15pm and played till 12:45am, not 1:15am, like Ken Weinstein said in his official statement. And apparently while the Pearl Jam crew was breaking down the Kanye crew got into a fight with them and slowed down the whole proccess. Kanye had a big LED wall and a landscape setup on stage, it wasnt really that elaborate. I don't know if it should have taken as long as it did. The original scheduled performance was 2:45am to 4:15am. The big screens in front of the main stage continually updated the rowd with the delays. first 3:30am, then 3:45am, he Finally came on at 4:30am and finished his set at 5:25am. He said nothing when he came out, and said nothing at the end, no hi, sorry, or goodbye, or explanation. An overall strange experience. Pearl Jam was awesome, Kanye's show just wasn't very good in terms of a performance, regardless of all the delays and confusion. So thats what I know.

Posted by Birdo | June 25, 2008 3:11 PM

pearl jam has more than enough right to go on for an hour extra. and i am so glad that they did. bonnaroo was amazing and they were one of the reasons.

Pearl Jam was the headliner on Saturday at Bonnaroo. Their time slot was 10:15-12:15 ( see http://www.bonnaroo.com/schedule/2008/06/14/stages.aspx ). Metallica, the Friday night headliner, was given a 2.5 hour time slow ( see http://www.bonnaroo.com/schedule/2008/06/13/stages.aspx ). I don't know why the Bonnaroo management gave Pearl Jam a shorter timeslot than Metallica when Pearl Jam's normal shows typically last 2.5 - 3 hours...

the look on kanyes face when the sun started coming up during the 3rd song was great

Awww Shit, I Look Like A Tool

... also, no one has commented on his excellent ending. As stronger finished, i guess hes on his little surfboard stage thing that moves. Well as the song ended it rose up so he can give his Free Willy hand high in the air face up pose. well i guess in the perfect glow in the dark world, the lights would be off and pitch black so he can make his move offstage. Well since the sun was shining right down on the stage. the song ended and no joke, he stood there as the platform lowered ( like a 15 second process of watching this stage lower, and kanye keeping his pose) to finally jsut jump off and run off after he got down to the bottom. No thank you noo goobye, no musical ending. just the song ends, stage lower, awkward crowd shot and then his exit... commence booing and kanye sux for the rest of the weekend

Everyone will swear to their own story and we'll never know exactly what really happened. I honestly sympathize with Kanye in this. He cares too much about what everyone thinks of him, and for someone in the spotlight that has to suck (even all of you guys who claim not to care still took the time to comment on this blog entry). I mean look at this rant?! Everyone thinks money makes up for everything and he has nothing to bitch about. He wants to be the best. And he may also be a bit insane.

7:05, you are a dumbass. Clearly, 6:29 used the term 'hipsters' in its overarching meaning, a meaning that spans decades, and the term 'hippies' to designate the modern-day group that takes its inspiration from the original hippies of the '60s.

If you're claiming that these modern-day hippies have made a contribution, you're full of shit.

god hippies suck with there god dam string cheese

6:49: It's "their". Apparently, this former hippie has better grammar than you.

Secondly, that girl with the Rolling Stones shirt is not a hippie.

Thirdly, real ghetto-lot-rash hippies fucking love hiphop. I fell in love with hiphop on Phish lot. Y'all don't know anything about hippies.

do hippies even like hip-hop?
what were they expecting?

and-

fuck all yall hippie haters. kanye has more talent than most of the other bonnaroo acts.

ffs-all of the douchenozzles who were sitting out in that field waiting for this idiot to go on stage missed some actual hip hop-namely Talib Kweli and Chali2Na who both came on stage on time and brought great shows, not to mention actual, consequential music. as for hippies liking hip hop, bonnaroo has always had hip hop acts in the lineup (since 02).

For all of the stupid hate and bile spewed here, i take comfort in the fact that while you're talking shit from your crappy one-bedroom apt and eating yet another 99 cent taco for dinner, Mr West is somewhere still counting his money FROM BONNAROO (that's right y'all, he still got PAID) making amazing beats, fucking supermodels and basically living the dream.

Reading the nonsense only reaffirms my undying apathy towards idiotic hipsters/music snobs.

and that 'crew' person who supposedly worked on two Kanye shows: talk about a whiny bitch!

Kanye complains about making his show right. You complain that you didn't get free effing t-shirt and that the catering wasn't to your liking?!?!?

Whatever... go moan into a Magnetic Fields record or some other sad bastard shit like that. I'm out...

Hippie girls are good for boning, though. they're usually really hardcore in the sack!

Good riddance. Don't let the door hit you on the ass on your way out.

catalano:

oh shit, kanye is living the dream? well shit, that changes my point of view completely! He could not be a more creative, entertaining artist and all around stand up guy.

please. do you really think anyone gives a fuck that he got paid? That's exactly why he's full of shit. he pulls antics like this when you've paid him your hard earned dough and then has the audacity to cry about it when people are rightfully upset.

i'm a hippie who likes hip hop. not bullshit mainstream stuff, but more radical shit.

"Kanye complains about making his show right. You complain that you didn't get free effing t-shirt and that the catering wasn't to your liking?!?!?"

Pardon me, Jordan, but if you could pull your head out of your ass for a second and develop some reading comprehension skills, you would realize the crew guy wasn't whining about not getting a free t-shirt. The point of crew t-shirts, especially at big festivals, is for coordinating and knowing who is working for which artist. Please see the quote below.

"Most shows assign locals to different production departments to work at loading in and out. they keep track by colored shirts or paper wristbands. He was too cheap to allow paper wristbands."

You know, it sort of makes it easier than stopping every two seconds asking which crew a person is with if you can just glance at their t-shirt.

As someone who also worked Bonnaroo from the production side let me give my two cents worth.

1. The second stage "Which" is not be large enough to accommodate Kanye's set. Kanye had a full band they were located behind a scrim upstage of the "What" Stage performance space.
They started setting that gear before the festival opened. Additional staging was planned for the "Which" stage but it was determined that it would be more effective to use the larger "What" Stage for Kanye. Why this plan occurred after the schedule was set I cannot address-however changes occur at festivals.

2. Bands have contracts that include riders that describe exactly what they require to perform. That is an agreement between the promoter and the band. Therefore (excluding weather and unforeseen incidents) there are two people who determine when an act goes on and the extent of the performance. The artist and the promoter.

Whoops, posted the comment without proofing should read "is not large enough", sorry for the tense mixing.

After his mouthy fiasco on stage with Taylor Swift I have no use for this SOB (not that I ever did). KW is a true idiot and I guess, now, HE is waking up to the "real world."
The "Real world" is full of potential fans or enemies. He made his bed and now he can lie in it!

Kanye really does suck bad. Great compilation of Kanye Sucks and Fuck Kanye photos! Stayed there and watched is early am performance and couldn't stop laughing for some reason. Kept thinking all he needed was some jet boots to fly around over the huge empty stage which made him look like a raving ant!
