Kanye West’s Bonnaroo “setlist” is something to behold

on July 09, 2014, 3:24pm

It was a month ago this week that Kanye West made his highly-anticipated return to Bonnaroo. In the end, the performance proved divisive thanks in part to several lengthy diatribes and proclamations regarding his greatness, in addition to a setlist which saw many songs cut short or restarted all together.

Recently, the folks at Funny or Die managed to get their hands on Kanye’s actual Bonnaroo setlist, and it’s really something to behold. TIL, I must have been blacked out from an excessive amount of Cranberry and Vodkas, because I don’t remember Charlie Rose’s cameo. Which is a shame, because I really love Charlie Rose.

Also, he has a point about Elves sounding like Elvis.

(Read: Kanye West is still not very popular at Bonnaroo).

Not being a huge kanye west fan and being a south park fan, all I knew about the guy came from the TV show… I had no idea their fishsticks depiction of Kanye was in fact this close to the truth – http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fishsticks_(South_Park)

This is bull. I was there and that’s not what happened. More like, “Where da press at?”

I’m not mad at this. I’m a comedian and this is common. This actually looks like a pretty great show. You’d probably be really excited on the other end of that. Real talk.

He is such a narcissistic fucker.

July 9, 2014 at 10:06 pm

Haha! This isn’t quite close to what he actually talked about. I waited around 7 hours for Kanye to play (while getting to see vampire weekend and a few others before) and he was absolutely terrible. Started off with 2-3 good songs then just ranted about how the press wants to change his image and stuff and right after he said that he literally paused.. Then started yelling “WHERE THE PRESS AT!!” Like he was going to beat the hell out of them. In which case I was pretty nervous because I was fairly close to the innocent press. He then awkwardly started anther song and then a few others, cutting them off halfway in between each to complain about this or that. Completely not worth the amount of pain in my legs after standing that long. Luckily I got to see Elton John perform, front row, the next night and it was incredible!!

was this corny, or nah?

July 10, 2014 at 2:10 am

Nah, this was quite possibly the most accurate description of the show. I couldn’t have said it better myself.

This was so corny, that, I had to make a log in just to say how corny it was.

July 10, 2014 at 8:15 am

You use commas so poorly, that, I just had to make a log in just to say how bad your writing skills are.

July 10, 2014 at 10:45 am

and for that you will be rewarded salvation, pig.

July 9, 2014 at 9:33 pm

So corny I had to make a log in just to tell you how corny it was.

July 9, 2014 at 9:26 pm

I wish he did play Gold Digger. But I heard Kim won’t let him… Sad days

July 9, 2014 at 9:03 pm

He seem to have left off the set highlight, “WHERE THE PRESS AT?”

July 9, 2014 at 6:26 pm

If you actually read the article, you would know that this wasn’t actually the setlist..
I mean, come on.. don’t just read titles and look at pictures before posting your dumb comments.

July 9, 2014 at 7:40 pm

Your an idiot.

July 10, 2014 at 2:04 am

You’re an idiot.

Jace is right. After experiencing Kanye’s actual ranting at Bonnaroo, this is actually pretty funny because its not far off. Check out my full review of Bonnaroo sets with video and pics at http://www.wevebeentherebefore.com.

It was just a joke people. You know that thing that people do so they can bring laughter? Yeah it was that.

P.s. Fuck kanye

July 9, 2014 at 4:35 pm

FAKE! Everyone knows he doesn’t open his setlist with Power.

July 9, 2014 at 4:12 pm

This is actually pretty funny if you were at that Bonnaroo show.

July 9, 2014 at 4:07 pm

This is actually funny if you were at that Bonnaroo show.

If you actually have a frame of reference to know what this is referring to, it’s actually pretty hilarious.

July 9, 2014 at 3:48 pm

Its not to far from his actual set list

July 9, 2014 at 3:40 pm

some people will actually believe that this is his Bonnaroo set list, so you should probably clarify that it’s not.

Most people aren’t idiots… we should never dumb down to the idiots.

You’re fucking retarded. Choose a creative reason to hate other than you’re a dumb fucking hillbilly

July 10, 2014 at 11:21 am

The word is “racist” not hillbilly. Plenty of non-racist hillbillies out there. Plenty of racist urbanites. Try not to be a bigot yourself when calling out bigots please.
