Kanye West brought the “Saint Pablo Tour” to The Meadows Music and Arts Festival in Queens during his heading set last night.

Thousands of fans attended the festival near Citi Field to watch Kanye’s performance along with Chance The Rapper, Pusha T and others. The festival served as a replacement for the cancelled Governors Ball from June.

The plan for Kanye and Chance was to reunite again on stage after the duo surprised fans during the “Magnificent Coloring Day” Festival in Chicago.

Kanye hit the stage around 9 p.m. for his set putting on a great performance for the fans who awaited his appearance. He performed all the hits including “Famous,” “Blood on the Leaves,” “Father Stretch My Hands,” “Facts,” “Mercy” and much more.

So let's get on widdit….

With about 20 minutes left in his set, Kanye was pulled aside during “Heartless” by a friend who was seen talking to Ye about something important. Kanye then informed the crowd there was a family emergency and he had to leave.

Kanye rushed off the stage and left the venue immediately and did not return.

We would later find out that Kim Kardashian West was involved in a horrific armed robbery in Paris while she was in her private apartment.

Details via CNN:

“Kardashian was staying at an apartment inside a luxury private mansion that can be rented out for days or weeks at a time. The French Interior Ministry said five men threatened the mansion concierge with a weapon, handcuffed him and forced him to open the private apartment. Two of the men were able to gain entry to Kardashian West’s room, according to the Paris prosecutor’s office, and a gun was held to her head. A source familiar with the situation told CNN that Kardashian West pleaded for her life as she was threatened with the gun, and was bound and forced into a bathtub. Tape was placed over mouth. Kardashian’s two children, North West and Saint West, were in New York at the time, the source said. The men took two cell phones and jewelry worth millions of dollars, according to the Interior Ministry. But only one of the phones belonged to Kardashian West, the source told CNN.”


Both Kanye and Kim fans were shocked to hear the news, but were thankful Kim was able to get out of the incident physically safe. She reunited with Kanye in New York City just hours after.

All over social media well wishes were given to Kim and the family following the robbery. Fans sent their love and prayers through tweets and Instagram posts including starting the #WeLoveYouKim hashtag.

The incident caused Kanye to reschedule his Philliphedia and Detroit “Saint Pablo Tour” shows to be by Kim’s side.
