SACRAMENTO (AP) — Just days after telling fans that he would have voted for Donald Trump, Kanye West delivered another public screed Saturday night, this time about Beyoncé and Jay Z at the Sacramento, California, stop of his Saint Pablo Tour.

West showed up over an hour late and went on a 20-minute rant at the Golden 1 Center.

Captured on video by concert goers, West told the audience he heard Beyoncé refused to perform at the MTV Video Music Awards unless she won Video of the Year over him, and he also urged her husband Jay Z to call him.

West said he was putting his life and career at risk by talking to the fans in the audience “like this.”

Those in attendance said on social media that West then played only a few songs before ending the concert.


After West stormed off stage, the confused crowd began chanting, “(F***) you, Kanye.”

Ticketmaster and Live Nation are already offering refunds for those with tickets to Saturday’s shows. No official word from Stubhub has been released, although they do say they will “most likely” offer refunds. Their decision could take up to a week to make, but in the meantime Stubhub will be emailing customers with more information.

Stubhub refunded customers for a similar concert in Inglewood on Nov. 3, when Kanye lost his voice and left the stage after about an hour.

West’s representative did not immediately respond to request for comment.
