NEWS: Pearl Jam Screws Kanye West

Ouch Pearl Jam, why'd you go an do that?

West had been scheduled to take the main stage at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival at 2:45 a.m. Sunday morning. While the sleepy thousands in the audience waited, a message on the jumbotrons told them West’s show would be delayed until 3:15 a.m., and when that didn’t happen, that he would start at 3:30. West didn’t hit the stage until 4:25 a.m.

The delay was caused by problems setting up West’s elaborate stage set, which included an interplanetary landscape of a wavy black platform with a slanted floor in the middle and a video screen above. West performed a spectacular galactic-themed concert complete with interaction with his spaceship, a disembodied female voice named Jane (a kind of sexier HAL).

Ken Weinstein, a spokesman for the annual festival held on a 700-acre site south of Nashville, said the delay was simply a matter of unloading the Pearl Jam stage (the band went an hour past its scheduled end time, playing until about 1:15 a.m.) and loading the West stage.

Pearl Jam played for an extra hour...West was over two hours do the math. Kanye screwed up and his roadies should be fired.

wasn't pearl jam the headliner? i heard kanye wanted to play later when it was dark because of the whole glow in the dark thing (he was originally at 8 something)..

so how could pearl jam 'screw' kanye... they were the headliners!! i should hope they play a crazy 3 hour set!!...

kanye's big... pjs bigger... when k's been around for 17 years and has a crazy loyal following like pj does then he can pull that crap..
