Praise Yeezus! Kanye West performed for the first time since dramatically leaving the stage mid-concert Oct. 2 after Kim Kardashian’s terrifying armed robbery. We have all the emotional details of his concert.
He’s back! Kanye West, 39, has hit the road with his Saint Pablo tour after taking nearly a week off to help wife Kim Kardashian, 35, recover from her traumatizing armed robbery in Paris where gunmen made off with $10 million in jewels. “It’s good to be home,” he told the sold-out audience at the first of two nights playing in the Windy City, as the crowd cheered!
Yeezy’s show was LIT in front of the packed crowd at the United Center on Oct. 7, as he went back to performing on his floating stage above his thrilled fans. Guys, he seriously got so much love and special hometown energy from the crowd! Everyone was so excited to see him back in action.

It must be weird for him to sing “Heartless” now as the song probably brings back horrifying memories. It was during that song when he literally got word of the attack on Kim and shut down his Oct. 2 show in Queens immediately. “I’m sorry, stop it. I’m sorry, family emergency. I have to stop the show,” he was seen on video telling the audience.
Of course we all know now that it turned out that five gunmen stormed into Kim’s hotel, bound and gagged her then made off with her jewelry collection. This time he was able to get through the song just fine as she’s now safely at home in Calabasas at her mom’s house with the biggest security detail she’s ever had.
Due to Kim’s traumatic incident, Yeezy ended up postponing his Oct. 4 show in Philadelphia and his Oct. 6 show in Detroit, both of which have been rescheduled for Dec. It must be SO hard to for him to be away from Kim after her harrowing ordeal, but maybe through music he can help heal from the fear of almost losing her.
