Kanye West is back on tour after his mother's unexpected death. He began his European tour in Paris where he broke down during the end of his show when his tribute song "Hey Mama" began. One concert goer told People magazine, "he just cracked. He was at the end of his concert and had just started to dedicate the song and then he just lost it completely".
Two of Kanye's band members came around to console him while he just stood, about to collapse on stage. The band played the beginning of "Hey Mama" in continuance while the crowd's support grew, chanting "Kanye, Kanye".
He eventually left the stage to collect himself and returned about 15 minutes later with great energy, concluding the concert with "Stronger".
Kanye's Monday night concert in Amsterdam was cancelled due to the funeral of his mother, Donda West, in Oklahoma on Tuesday, Nov. 20, but is expected to return to Europe on Thursday, continuing his tour.
