Kanye West Throws Out Business Card Throwing Fan

in Live,News

Kanye West had one of his fans thrown out of a gig in Tacoma, Washington because he threw his business cards on the stage.

West stopped the show and said “I see them come from that direction so like, all four of them gotta go. Unless one person raise their hand and say ‘I’m the one that did it’, all that whole section gotta go. These cubes go 20ft in the air. You can’t go risking our lives by throwing shit we’re gonna slip on.”

He finished up by asking, “We got the person? It’s him?” before walking off to another [less slippery] part of the stage as West’s 2005 single Diamonds From Sierra Leone kicks off with some impressive looking lasers.

Check out the spat below:

The scene happened as part of the Watch the Throne tour, which saw West on the road with Jay-Z.

The Watch The Throne tour has now finished, but if you promise not to throw any business cards onto the stage, you can check out Kanye West in Australia in January as part of the Big Day Out tour. Dates are:


20 – Big Day Out, Auckland
22 – Big Day Out, Gold Coast
26 – Big Day Out, Sydney
27 – Entertainment Centre, Sydney
29 – Big Day Out, Melbourne
31 – Sidney Myer Music Bowl, Melbourne


3 – Big Day Out, Adelaide
5 – Big Day Out, Perth
