Regardless of whether or not you like him, I think we can all agree that Kanye's set will be highly anticipated for no other reason than Kanye West an absolutely crazy personality. Will this define his set?

Man, the Glow in the Dark tour was something else. It takes a serious brass pair to be the only person out on stage the duration of the whole set, but he actually kind of pulled it off. The set design was the craziest thing i'd ever seen.

I'd anticipate something at least as weird and strange as that. Maybe he'll go the opposite way and do full orchestral or something.

He will appear 30 minutes late, cut his set short. Come out and steal the microphone from Julian Casablancas.

I think we can almost GUARENTEE one of the following showing up...Nicki Minaj, Jay Z, Bon Iver (Justin), Kid Cudi, or Lil Wayne.

For those who havent seen him live (especially the Glow In The Dark stage), you are in for a treat. Shit will be one of the better sets of the weekend. Quote me on that.

THIS.

I'm going to say...Nicki Minaj because she sings on his single "Monster"

Also, possibility of Rihanna

He will dictate tweets to the female spaceship computer from Glow in the Dark and the tweets will be posted on all video screens everywhere in the festival (not just main stage screens, but screens behind every performer) while being fed grapes by 100 ballerinas while standing on this http://www.efi-costarica.com/image-files/louis-xiv-furniture.jpg. The USC Marching band will perform All of the Lights with him. The ghost of Tupac will join him and all the other guests on Monster before floating into the crowd to devour white virgin girls' souls. At the end of his set (closing number: a half hour rant), which will be at 2:00 - 2 hours after Sunday night Indio noise ordinance time (during the rant he'll say he doesn't care, he really will pay the fine unlike that wuss Mos Def (http://laist.com/2005/05/03/coachella_2005_day_two.php)), he will get some head from a male albacore, don a pair of angels wings and fly off.














And it will be the sickest thing you've ever seen.

i will quote you on that. we said the same thing about gorillaz last year and it sucked hardcore cock. not saying kanye will suck dick as bad, but if another volcano erupts there will be issues

whatever kanye ends up doing it will be sick as hell. ballerinas? hopefully. nicki minaj? i hope so. marching band? PLEASE. and even if none of those things end up happening, it does not matter because i am so excited to see him perform his new album.

Gayngs will be there, so it is probably likely that Justin Vernon will make an appearance during Kanye's set.

i think it's not a very creative get for a headliner, but i do think that his set will be great.

Yeah, but that was a last minute add and he wasn't headlining. He has to bring some big guns especially since he's closing out the festival.

as someone said earlier, justin vernon will for sure be there with him as GAYNGS is playing.

Kanye has already said that his tour ideas were "really expensive".

He's not going to follow-up the Glow In The Dark Tour with something sub-par. I fully expect a live band with pretty lights and all that shit.

daft punk will join him for stronger to close his set then play there own...

Kanye's headline set at Lolla a couple of years ago was with a live band and it was pretty fantastic.

Lol, just reminds of the Simpsons when Lisa says "Why would they come to our concert just to boo us?"

KickerConspiracy
01-19-2011, 09:13 AM
yeah, I'm excited for Kanye. Think his set will be shorter than the other headliners because of the co-headline? Who will go on first? I'm guessing the Strokes.

GuyInTucson
01-19-2011, 09:32 AM
Yeah I am pretty sure Kanye is going to kill it.

Say what you want about him, he puts a lot of effort into his shows. He can be a douche, even he admitted that himself, but he is far from a lazy artist.

It would be nice to see Jack White, Eddie Vedder or Andre 3000 come out and grab Kanye's mic and say:
Kanye.. Imma letchu finish, but you are one of the worst Coachella headliners of all time, of ALL TIME!

I disagree completely. One of the worst? No...


He's probably the best headliner on the lineup this year. Their names may not give you the wow factor, but both Kanye and Arcade Fire will put on very appealling shows.

From friends who have seen him live, I have heard great things. I just hope he does not try to pull a Bonnaroo. I think this set has a lot riding on it, but the new album should translate amazing live on the polo. Ballerinas and all.

Kanye is dope live. His set and his ability to amp up a crowd is RIDICULOUS. He won't disappoint. I'm hesitant to say he's gonna bring mad guests on the stage because you bitches said the same thing about the Gorillaz last year and we got hosed. I'm hoping he does have a few worthy guests though...ie. KiD CuDi, Nicki Minaj, I doubt jigga will be there, and having Wayne there would be dope but I doubt he will being he's headliner status himself. Kanye IS closing out the festival though and his ego won't let him fail.
