Kanye West, Yeezus Tour

Even for Kanye West, the show must go on.

That was the case on Saturday night in Tampa, when the rapper ran into a few snafus mid-performance, according to The Tampa Tribune. Per the report, Yeezy halted the concert just a few seconds into his third song and demanded that the music be stopped as he stormed off stage.

Apparently, the lighting scheme wasn't right and West shouted that the lights be turned off "now" while also dropping a few profane words.

He also shouted in front of more than 7,000 fans at Tampa's forum that a woman named "Laura" forgot to give him the "deep voice" on his microphone.

And that wasn't the only thing that didn't live up to West's standards during the show, according to the paper.

The giant LED screen in the center stage showed his face in color instead of in black and white. Suffice to say, Yeezy was not pleased.

Of course, the entire fiasco lasted less than five minutes, and he returned to the stage to perform "Send It Up" as if the ordeal never even happened.

And it wouldn't be a West concert without a name-dropping rant, would it?

Several concertgoers claim that West referred to himself along with people such as Steve Jobs, the Wright Brothers, Thomas Edison and even Nelson Mandela, because they all had haters during the height of their success.

The Yeezus Tour wraps up on Dec. 23 in Toronto, just in time for the holidays.
