Kanye West is latest in a long line of Sacramento showstoppers

Saturday night, after showing up 90 minutes or so late, Kanye West abruptly ended his sold-out concert at the Golden 1 Center after a few songs, followed by an increasingly nonsensical diatribe in which he scolded Beyoncé and Jay Z and name-checked both Taylor Swift and the president-elect.

The pop-up celebration was Sacramento’s first Le Dîner en Blanc, an international event that began in Paris in 1988 and has since spread to over 70 cities across all six continents, including 28 events sprinkled throughout the U.S. The location for Sacramento’s Dîner en Blanc was kept a secret until the day of the event, and attendees gathered at four meeting points, escorted by volunteers to the front of the arena.
