Kanye West was rumored to perform at Coachella 2019, but he allegedly turned down the fer when they could not construct a stage to his specifications. Then, Mr. West announced that he was bringing his Sunday Service program to Palm Desert for Coachella Weekend 2. It didn’t really make sense for ‘Ye to perform so close to Empire Polo Grounds (where Coachella takes place), without actually gracing the festival. After hopping on stage with Kid Cudi on Saturday night, Mr. West is now performing his Sunday Service on festival grounds.
Kanye’s Sunday Service shows have all been invite-only, taking place in the Colorado Desert. This Coachella performance is open to everyone attending the festival though. A choir and a live band will accompany Kanye for the Easter special. Special merchandise is on sale for the event at Coachella, which will undoubtedly be sold for double by resalers. It would be a truly marvelous Easter in general, if not for the horrific bombings that killed hundreds in Sri Lanka. While we enjoy this performance from Kanye, do keep in mind that there are others suffering on Easter Sunday.
The Sunday Service will be live-streamed on Coachella’s YouTube page, which can be viewed below.
