Kanye gets to perform at Coachella after all…
Kanye West has announced that he’s bringing his Sunday Service show to Coachella 2019.
The rapper debuted the weekly performance series at the beginning of 2019, which has seen him being joined by a wide variety of musicians. As well as performing soulful takes on his own material, the weekly performances have also seen Kanye debuting new material and being joined by high profile guests including David Letterman and Katy Perry.
In a video posted on Twitter, Kanye is seen confirming the performance during yesterday’s edition of Sunday Service.
“We were thinking of a performance at Palm Springs [the location of Coachella],” Kanye says in the clip.
“Easter Sunday at Coachella. The confirmation was confirmed last night. Sunday Service at Coachella. Easter Sunday 9AM.”
The performance takes place on the final day of Coachella’s second weekend (April 21).
Kanye’s Coachella performance comes after he was previously set to headline the festival in 2019, but pulled out after talks about the logistics of his performance broke down.
It was claimed that the rapper asked for a new stage in the shape of a giant dome to be built for him, only two days before festival promoter Paul Tollett was set to announce his performance.
Tollett explained to the rapper that four months would not be enough time to construct the stage as it would require the promoter to rearrange the whole festival site and remove a large section of toilets. It’s reported that West reacted by saying he is an artist with a creative vision and shouldn’t need to be discussing port-a-potties.His Sunday Service has also proved to be similarly contentious – with Los Angeles police called to the event last month after receiving a series of noise complaints.
