Ticketmaster Issues Full Refunds To Attendees At Kanye West Sacramento Concert

Fans say West barely performed three songs before launching into a speech and ending the concert early.

Last night at the Sacramento stop on the Saint Pablo tour, Kanye West launched into a 15-minute-long speech about everything from his problems with commercial radio stations to his issues with Beyoncé and Jay Z, and the current state of American politics. (Read the full transcript here.) After concluding his speech by dropping his mic (and, according to attendees, performing just three songs in all), West walked off stage and abruptly ended the show.

In the video footage of the speech, concertgoers can be heard becoming increasingly irritated and calling on West to get back to the music. Once he left the concert entirely, fans became irate and earlier today #KanyeIsOverParty began trending on Twitter.

And now Ticketmaster has apparently given into attendees who want their money back: According to ABC 10, the company is now issuing full refunds to those who attended last night's show. Note: This is the second time refunds have been issued for a Saint Pablo tour show. Earlier this fall, the rapper cut a concert in L.A. short after he began losing his voice.

For his part, West hasn't offered any additional commentary on what went down in Sacramento, but he has reactivated his Instagram, sharing a slew of new posts for what appears to be a new art installation.

Update Kanye West has cancelled tonight's show at The Forum in L.A. The show was meant to be a makeup show for the November 3 performance he cancelled after losing his voice.
