With any Chicago concert or festival, Kanye West is always listed as a rumored guest because of his connection to the city and today was no different.

Just six hours before his scheduled “Saint Pablo Tour” stop in Nashville, Kanye treated the audience at the “Magnificent Coloring Day” Festival to a short set.

Fans with tickets in the stands of U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago ran to the main floor to get a glimpse of Ye as soon as he came on stage.

Kanye performed hits like, “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1,” “That Part,” “All Day,” “Black Skinhead,” “Can’t Tell Me Nothing,” “All Falls Down,” “Gold Digger” and “Touch The Sky.”

I'm witnessing greatness! #Kanye

For the final song, Kanye called Chance The Rapper to the stage so the duo could perform “Ultralight Beam” together for only the second time ever.


The energy from the crowd could be felt and heard through Tidal’s live stream as they sang every word of the track. After the song was finished, Kanye and Chance hugged it out on stage and left together surly giving fans a moment they will never forget.
