Kanye West Coachella Performance 'One Of The Greatest Ever'

April 19, 2011
Kanye West Coachella Performance 'One Of The Greatest Ever'Kanye West's performance at last weekend's Coachella Festival in California has been praised by critics.

West's headline set on Sunday (April 17) was dedicated to his late mother and included songs from his entire career.

The Hollywood Reporter described the rapper's performance as a "grandiose, theatrical performance destined to be remembered as one of the great hip-hop sets of all time".

CBS News said West "blew the doors off" the festival, while The Los Angeles Times said he provided a "captivating" spectacle and "a festival performance unlike any other".

During his performance at Coachella, West called the gig his "most important show" since his mother died suddenly in 2007.

Arcade Fire and Kings Of Leon also headlined the festival.

Thank you for your sweet words about Mothers. I lost my mom suddenly when I was 32 years old and my sons were 6 and 4. We were very close, and I prbaobly talked to her almost every day. It was a heart breaking and life changing time for me. I know what it is like to dream about your mother. I still do at times, and she is still very real to me in my dreams. Now I consider her a part of who I am as a person and a mother. Over the years I could see her mothering traits in me. I treasure the fact that I had such a special mom. Thank you for allowing me to think about this today. Mothers are truly a gift.
