News: "Kanye sucks!" Fans Scream After Rapper Shows Up Late For Concert


By Brandi Hopper

Angry, tired fans who had to wait into the wee hours of morning for Kanye West to finally take the stage at the Bonnaroo festival in Tennessee jeered him for his two-hour late appearance yesterday (June 15).

Armed with glow sticks, the mob booed the rapper, chanted "Kanye sucks" and pelted the glow-in-the-dark spears at the empty stage, while others just returned to their sleeping bags, giving up on Ye, according to BBC News.

Problems taking down the set for Pearl Jam, who'd gone on right before and played an hour late, plus difficulty getting up Ye's glow-in-the-dark backdrop - so his space ship could crash land on stage -- were blamed for the delay.Over 150 eclectic acts performed at the four-day festival, including comedian Chris Rock.

Later on Sunday, pedal steel guitarist Robert Randolph criticized West on stage for slighting his fans, egging on more "Kanye sucks" chants from the crowd.
