Delayed Kanye West gig angers crowd

It was a wild weekend at the Tennessee music festival known as Bonnaroo. Kanye West's scheduled performance early yesterday was delayed for nearly two hours and didn't get started until about 4:25 in the morning. Sleepy fans were irate, chanting quasi-obscenities and pelting the stage with glow sticks.

The annual festival is held on a 700-acre site south of Nashville. A festival spokesman says the delay was simply a matter of taking down the elaborate set used by Pearl Jam, which went an hour past its schedule, and setting up the stage for West. His spectacular galactic-themed concert featured an interplanetary landscape and a spaceship.

No comment from West on the ruckus.
