Kanye West fans slam star’s outrageously overpriced ‘album listening party’ menu

Fans appeared in awe at Kanye West’s new album as he dropped his first new music in over two years at an album listening party in Georgia.

However, while the music appeared to hit all the right notes – including a shock collaboration with Jay-Z – the price of snacks at the venue has been widely criticised.

The Gold Digger singer, 44, wowed the crowds at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Thursday night, but a photo of an event menu with ‘ Kanye West Listening Party’ written across it has caused outrage as it went viral.

It shows prices of up to $50 (about £35) for chicken tenders, while an “all beef kosher franks” hot dog set fans back $40 (almost £30).

For fans with a sweet tooth, they had to fork out $65 (nearly £50) for an assorted snack basket, and $45 (£33) cookies and brownies.

It’s unknown whether these prices came into effect simply for the concert, but the arena is usually much more reasonably priced.

On the official Mercedes-Benz Club website, a classic hot dog is priced at just $1.50 (a little over £1).

Outraged fans took to Twitter to call out the star’s prices. One wrote: “Kanye wild with that menu.”

Another put: “Kanye probably going to make more off of these menu prices than his album.”

And a third commented: “I am way too broke (in my terms) to even view Kanye’s food menu, them prices told me to go.”

However, some fans tried to justify the prices and offered a potential explanation for the inflated pricing.

One fans wrote: “I bought a full pizza at the event for like $15. Water and drinks were only $2. You could get snacks for much cheaper. This isn’t the ordinary stand.”

“So Kanye’s menu prices was for suites, not an individual,” said another.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye’s kids – North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm – were all in attendance at the event to offer the superstar their support.

So too was Kim’s sister Khloe, who recently called the singer her “brother for life”.

Kanye kept his fans hanging on in the stadium as he was over two hours late for his own party.

When he did show, he walked into the arena without an introduction as his tunes began to play over the speakers.

He occasionally broke into a dance as he wore a red puffer jacket, matching trousers and orange shoes all of his own design. He also donned what appeared to be a brown mask.
