The Chicago-born rapper held his popular “Sunday Service” event in the city for the very first time. It’s what West calls his Christian-based gospel performances.
West first held the first exclusive Sunday Service in Calabasas, California, before opening up the events up to fans and the general public in April at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. One of his recent stops was in Dayton, Ohio, after the August 4 mass shooting that killed 9 people.

Tickets for the Chicago event were free through Ticketmaster and sold out in less than an hour of them being announced.
“I’m just like a huge Kanye fan. I’ve loved him for so long and I’ve watched the past Sunday Services and I’m super excited,” ticket holder Samuel Reid said.
