Kanye West and Jay-Z started the European leg of their Watch The Throne tour with an almighty bang on Friday night at London’s O2 Arena.
The explosive show featured hits not only from their Grammy nominated collaborative album, but also songs from the rap superstars’ independent projects, such as Yeezy’s 808s & Heartbreak and Jay’s The Blueprint 3.
Add four run throughs of N*ggas in Paris and huge illuminated rising platforms, upon which the pair both performed, and you had the ingredients of an incredible concert.
Amongst the 20,000 fans at the O2, a number of UK urban celebs made sure they were there for The Throne’s first London tour date and shared their excitement with the Twittersphere.

G FrSH was even lucky enough to get an All Access pass for the show and tweeted a picture of Kanye’s dressing room. The perks of being signed to Tinie Tempah eh?
The Watch The Throne tour will be at the O2 Arena until Tuesday 22 May. Will you be there?
Well if not, here’s a taste of what you’re missing; it’s the N*ggas in Paris performance taken on a concertgoers phone.
