Kanye switches from "Monster" to "In the Air Tonight"…
Here is Kanye West performing Phil Collins' "In The Air Tonight" during his gig at the Revel Casino in Atlantic City on Friday night. Billboard reports that Kanye had just finished "Monster" and followed it up with an interlude in which he sang "I'm going home" as he walked to the center of the stage, which led into the cover.
Kanye also delivered a long story about the inspiration for "Say You Will" on 808 & Heartbreak, an impromptu portion of Queen's "We Will Rock You" and a thank you to fans that turned into a self-praising segment, including lines like "As a man I'm imperfect, but my music is!" and "I make perfect music! This is the best you'll ever get!" As for the songs, he included almost all past hits of his with only three new songs: "New God Flow," "Mercy" and "Cold" (aka "Theraflu").
