To no surprise, Kanye West kicked off his 39-date Saint Tour in style last night (August 25) at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse arena in Indianapolis. And by "style," we don't just mean the fashion choices.

Live from the home of the Indiana Pacers, the "Famous" rapper launched into a 31-song set that spanned material from The College Dropout through Life of Pablo, delivering cheers, excitement, and a thrill for the thousands in attendance. To make it even better, Mr. West did all of this while floating 15 feet up in the air.

Soaring about the crowd on a stage that could have very well been called "Break Ya Neck," 'Ye jumped into "Father Stretch My Hands," "Can't Tell Me Nothing," "Blood on the Leaves," and more. The state of the platform is reminiscent of the off-Broadway production Fuerza Bruta, which also features an above-the-crowd performance.
