Kanye West recovers to continue Sydney tour
Kanye West was rushed to hospital suffering a major health scare just hours before performing at his final concert in Melbourne overnight.
The rapper was whisked to Melbourne’s Epworth Hospital in Richmond suffering a migraine. He was given an emergency MRI just after 2pm on Wednesday. The 37-year-old had one side of his face covered as he was rushed through the back entrance, surrounded by high security.
Nurses were forced to ask patients to move out of the waiting room and consulting rooms so Kanye, who is in Australia for his high-energy Yeezus tour, could be treated privately.
Despite his scare, Kanye later performed to a packed crowed at Rod Laver Arena following his release from hospital sometime after 4.30pm.
Kanye’s record label had no comment about his hospital stay, but said his shows will continue as scheduled.
“Kanye went on stage last night in Melbourne as scheduled. The tour continues at Sydney’s Allphones Arena tomorrow and Saturday, before concluding in Brisbane on Monday night,” a Live Nation spokeswoman said.
