KANYE LIVE AT PAVILLION LAST NIGHT!
Kanye West suprised loads of Cork music fans by turning up last night to Stevie G's Jam night in the Pavilion in Cork and performing alongside fellow rapper Kid Cudi at an intimate gig by hot U.S. supergroup N.A.S.A.! Earlier Kanye had rocked Live at the Marquee in Cork for the 3rd time but the 300 strong crowd at the much smaller Pavilion couldn't believe it when he took to the stage just after 1a.m. and rapped on his own "Gifted" track from N.A.S.A.'s "Spirit of the Apollo" album, which features guests such as Kanye, Tom Waits, M.I.A, George Clinton and more. RedFM's Stevie G, who also runs the Pavilion, was tipped off only shortly before-hand, and made sure that Kanye's visit was kept slightly under wraps. "He was basically unwinding after his show and our staff made sure he was left to mind his own business. He is friends with Sam Spiegel of N.A.S.A. and he wanted to hang out and see the show. Most of the people in the club didn't know he was there till he jumped on stage!" Stevie had warmed up for Kanye on his previous two visits to Cork but this was his first time meeting him properly. "Kanye was well cool, very laid-back and down-to-earth, a million miles from the public persona to be honest. I was pretty happy that he came down to our club but when he got up and performed I nearly hit the roof! Kid Cudi joined in too as they performed his massive "Day N' Night" tune and rounded off a terrific night for everyone who was there. Kanye's performance at the Marquee was a much more mature and rounded one this time, and everyone at the Pavilion could see the passion that the guy has for his music".
