Kanye West: The listening experience in Bologna was a bomb

We were there last night Vulture listening experience From Kanye West And Ty Dolla Mr in Bologna. We'll tell you how it went.

Kanye West and Ty Dolla Sign are also conquering Bologna with the Vultures 1 Listening Experience

We were there last night, February 24, 2024Unipol Arena from Casalecchio di Reno (BO) to participate in the Hear Experience From vulture 1the latest project from Kanye West and Ty Dolla Sign.

Let's be honest: before this double Italian date we were a bit skeptical for many reasons, but from our point of view the experience we had was worth the price and the worries.

At Rapologia we tend to be traditionalists and like rap done live with a DJ and microphone. Knowing that Kanye didn't want to bring either one or the other, we were obviously a little concerned. Given the ticket price (€149 between the fare and commissions in the cheapest sector), the gym not being completely sold out and the artist's fickleness, we had more doubts than certainty.

Is it worth paying so much for an event like this? Are all guests from Milan? In addition to those from, there will be space for some old pieces vulture? Will he ever take off his mask?

After the two-hour show, we left with much greater certainty: yes, the ticket was well spent and the event was a blast, perhaps even more so than the one in Lombardy forty-eight hours earlier.

The scenography, which to say minimal would be an understatement, also included a fabric cylinder hanging in the center of the gym and copious amounts of smoke that stuck to the ground, illuminating a beam of light into the center of the arena. Nothing else. No stage, no flames, no colored lights and of course no microphone.

The Listening Experience Series Vulture 1 by Kanye West and Ty Dolla Sign has seen all the songs from the latest album in this order:

  • CARNIVAL (Intro)
  • PAID
  • TALK
  • ALL
  • DO IT
  • BURN
  • Ask for forgiveness
  • KING

The highlights were those of what was still unpublished All (which could have been the lead single but not included on the album) and by Good (Don't Die)Removed from Spotify for copyright reasons.

Many guests entered the stage (which isn't actually a stage): Freddie Gibbs, Quavo, Playboi Carti, Rich The Kid and Bump J to attack the crowd.

As usual, Kanye and Ty wore masks on their faces for most of the show, but took them off at a few points. Even Kanye's mask, in addition to the classic balaclava, was adorned with what appeared to be a black hockey mask, worn backwards for a while. The guest artists also entered the stage covered, only to uncover their faces again quite quickly.

In the utter madness of the event, the face masks helped raise the heat of the audience, who burst into ovations just from seeing their idol on their face.

The last song of finished vulturewhen in Milan Kanye and Ty moved away and other songs started:

  • I can't say anything
  • Praise God

The first pieces of the repertoire were played without anyone there, but halfway through, the surprise came Stronger, as Kanye returned to the center of the arena with his face uncovered.

Apologies to those following the execution of king They had already set off to avoid the traffic: unfortunately, they probably missed the best part of the performance.

In fact, shortly afterward, all of the other artists involved came out to warmly greet the audience, especially Ty Dolla, who even addressed an audience member from the front rows.

Kanye West and Ty Dolla Sign's audience in Bologna

The audience at this event was extremely colorful and heterogeneous. There were kids in designer clothes, there were more mature people who might have been connected to Kanye a few years ago. There were children who were more excited than ever before, but also some who were obviously disappointed. Apparently, those who were expecting a real live show and not a concert to retrace Ye and Ty's discography didn't find what they were looking for.

Despite everything, the building eventually filled up enough and it seemed as if the warmth of the crowd was reaching the artists on stage. He definitely received the affection of the three crazy people who saw fit to storm the field, despite the massive security force present at the event. However, Ty didn't seem too worried. Let's say that, personally speaking, he gives the impression that he knows how to defend himself in any eventuality.

Regardless of this episode, the audience immediately showed their warmth carnival, played four times over the course of the evening. His iconic stadium song was sung at the top of his lungs by the over 8,000 spectators in the Unipol Arena, whenever it was needed and more. Many continued to sing it on the way back to the parking lot.

The merch

When we talk about Kanye, we also talk about fashion, so merch is always very important.

In Milan only one t-shirt was presented, while that day there was a second t-shirt with the iconic number 1 on the shoulders. Both for the price of 40 €. Although it is not the 20 euros promised by the artist, it seems that the audience did not have much problems and literally stormed the stands despite the high cost of the ticket they had already paid for.


How was it listening experience by Vultures 1 by Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign? Pretty cool.

It was a collective madness that, precisely because of its kind of madness, thrilled the audience almost more than a real live show. Tickets at crazy prices, scenography almost non-existent, the actors didn't even have a microphone, they didn't say a word to the audience who could barely see their faces. Nevertheless, they managed to inspire the people present in the stadium and make the evening unforgettable, which ultimately corresponds to the wishes of the fans.

Of course, we can't judge the artists' performances: since we didn't sing, we don't know what their vocal range is. We can only rate the empathy of Kanye, Ty and all the guests, which was really very high.

Another thing that struck us was Kanye's meticulousness, as he repeatedly moved away from the center of the square to give (sometimes insistent) instructions to the photographers and cameramen at the edge of the lit area, almost as if to show that he was completely in control of the show.

Kanye and Ty's euphoria also spread to the guest stars. Above all, we would like to point out that it is very well attended Rich The Kid, who climbed onto the roof of the car in front of the Unipole to sing the carnival choir with his audience one last time.

Let's see what happens tonight ParisBecause if there's one thing Kanye has taught us, it's this: listening experience it is an event in itself.
