[VIDEOS]: KANYE WEST GETS A VISIT FROM JESUS AT 'YEEZUS' TOUR KICK OFF


“White Jesus, is that you? Oh shiiit!!!”

Kanye West isn’t a stranger to making folks uncomfortable and depending on how religious you are, he may give you a few of those moments during his “Yeezus” tour. Last night, the tour kicked off in Seattle, and a crowd of over 17,000 was treated to religious-themed visuals, as Kanye ran through tracks off of his new album, while taking it back, and performing cuts like “Jesus Walks,” “Flashing Lights” and “Can’t Tell Me Nothing.” He was also accompanied by female disciples and ballerinas in flesh-toned costumes on stage, while the set, designed by his DONDA creative company, was filled with visually stimulating imagery throughout the show.

Meanwhile, folks are yelling “Blasphemy” at Ye’s decision to perform some of his show from atop a mountain, and get a visit from a guy dressed as Jesus.

Catch a few amazing pics and video (SPOILERS) below:

  1. Context is everything.
    Before Kanye West performed “Jesus Walks,” he brought out a Jesus look-alike and had a playful conversation with him. The crowd certainly got a laugh out of it. Kanye asked: “White Jesus, is that you?” Oh, shit,” before playfully apologizing for his language. Jesus then told ‘Ye that he’s not here to punish him, but to help him. As Jesus exited, the lights dimmed and “Jesus Walks” blared through the speakers as Kanye got into his 2004 hit single.
    Jesus would later return at the end of the show, appearing at the top of the mountain. Kanye and the women performers onstage bowed to Jesus while the sample from “On Sight”—Holy Name of Mary Choral Family’s “Sermon (He’ll Give Us What We Really Need)”—looped until they walked off the stage and the show ended.
