Police shut down Kanye West's concert after party

Kanye West's concert after party was shut down by police in Beverly Hills, California on Saturday night (26Sep15) before the rapper had even arrived.

The Power hitmaker wrapped up the second show of his two-night stint at the Hollywood Bowl on Saturday, when he played his 2008 album 808s & Heartbreak in its entirety.


He was due to celebrate the gigs with a bash at a private estate, but cops were called to the neighborhood after large, noisy crowds gathered outside the venue.


Authorities ordered the huge group to disperse, and event organizers subsequently moved the party to another, undisclosed venue.


The police intervention wasn't the only drama West encountered over the weekend. He also experienced some technical problems during his first Hollywood Bowl gig on Friday (25Sep15), when he briefly halted the show to complain about the lack of piano backing track for See You in My Nightmares.


In video footage of the incident, obtained by TMZ.com, West can be heard saying, "There's no piano. Stop the track", and then quipping, "This is the best dress rehearsal I've ever had."


The sound glitch didn't put a damper on the show for one of West's biggest fans - his wife Kim Kardashian shared photos of the concert on Instagram.com, and simply captioned one snap, "AMAZING".
