Kanye West was joined onstage by the only man he considers bigger than himself - Jesus Christ."White Jesus, is that you?"
The 36-year-old rapper kicked off his Yeezus Tour Saturday night at Seattle's Key Arena in typical grandiose style.
The masks - which he wore for 90 percent of the show - were similar to the ones designed by Maison Martin Margiela that he donned last year.
And he's not alone. Icelandic pop star Bjork also wore head-pieces created by Maiko Takeda that changed colour on her Biophilia Tour.
Before performing the first song On Sight, Kanye began the show with his dancers kneeling in columns of light while opera and poetry swelled through the stadium.
