Our 2008 Bonnaroo correspondent EJ Friedman sends along a note on Kanye West’s set, which was hastily rescheduled to 2:45 a.m. Saturday/Sunday and didn’t get going until the break of dawn: Nothing wrong with Kanye West’s ego being the size of Jupiter, but his “glow-in-the-dark spectacular” was short on spectacle, long on wait, and not at all what was promised. Was it because Pearl Jam ran late? Was it because of a disagreement over the safety of some portion of his set? Was it because Kanye’s over-inflated sense of self has crashed headlong into his limitations as a human being?
