Every time he takes the stage, Kanye West wants to put on the most amazing show possible. So he performs his best songs, goes on his now-epic rants and encourages his fans to get up out of their seats to enjoy what he’s doing. But every now and then, his interactions with fans go beyond just the norm, like they did this past weekend inAustralia.
Kanye caught a ton of flack for reportedly asking a handicapped fan to get up out of his seat during a performance of his hit song, “Good Life” (to his credit, Kanye did ease up on the fan once he realized he was handicapped). In light of that incident, here are 8 of the most memorable interactions that Kanye has had with fans during concerts.
