Kanye West at Austin City Limits 2011
So we're standing relatively close for Kanye- just left of the sound booth, all antsy around 8:30 for his set to start. The lights turn down, the musicians take their place on stage, when all of a sudden a platform starts lifting RIGHT ABOVE OUR HEADS. Kanye opened with "My Fantasy" from about 100 feet directly above us. Blew our minds out.
