From Washington, D.C. to Atlanta and then Tampa a lot happened at the “Saint Pablo Tour” in during those six days.

In Washington D.C., Kanye West returned to giving his popular visionary stream of consciousness during “Runaway.” He spoke about the negative feedback from Yeezy Season 4, color palettes and about the tech world.

The crowd during the show was loving Kanye’s “floor seats” section especially during “Touch The Sky” and his “Ultralight Beam” closing.

In Washington, D.C. Kanye added a new camo shirt and but then kept the merch the same for the Atlanta and Tampa stops.

As for set lists the first two cities saw no changes, while “Gold Digger” was removed from the Tampa show.

After a well deserved three days off and a Bazaar Icons party performance, Kanye returned to the stage in Atlanta. He again delivered a visionary stream of consciousness for fans in attendance. This time it was all about the dreamers.

One of the craziest moments thus far on the tour came while Kanye was performing “Power” and a fan managed to get close enough to touch the stage.

Like both shows in New York City, the Atlanta stop was filled with celebrities in attendance for Kanye’s concert including 2 Chainz, Andre 3000, Metro Boomin and Jermaine Dupree.

The day before the concert, Kid Cudi posted tweets on his Twitter page calling out Kanye, Drake and others. During the show, Kanye took the time to talk about those tweets during his song “Don’t Like.”

Drake, who is also on his tour, also briefly spoke about Cudi’s tweets during his stop in Oakland.

As Kanye performed in Tampa, Kim Kardashian West live streamed for fans backstage as she watched the show. During the stream Kanye could be heard telling fans, “We here. The greatest tour of all time.” While he performed “Facts” Kanye also addressed the hate for the song when it initially dropped year.

Those were just some of the highlights of the Tampa stop, a fan threw his phone on stage while it was recording and eventually got it back from Kanye himself. Another fan was able to hold hands with Ye while he performed “I Love Kanye” to the crowd.
