Kanye West started his bizarrely titled "Yeezus Tour" in Seattle, Washington. The concert was complete with 12 "disciples" and even a demon.

As the first part of his highly anticipated Yeezus tour, Kanye gave  a controversial nod to the Almighty, featuring 12 dancing "disciples," a red-eyed demon(apart from Kanye) - and a dancing Jesus.

"Jesus" was barefoot, white-robed with the beard confirming to the stereotype, wielding a microphone to 'preach the Gospel' according to Kanye.  He joined the rapper on stage at Seattle's KeyArena and helped hype the crowd for West's 2004 single "Jesus Walks."

"White Jesus, is that you?  Oh, s-t, I can't believe it!"

"Jesus" left to a huge ovation. The omnipotence was not enough, though  to make the concert start on time.The Saturday concert, the first of the tour, was supposed to kick off at 6:30 p.m. but didn't start until more than two hours later.

The fake Jesus gimmick was not the only buzz worthy incident at the event. Among the tour merchandise were skull-themed shirts for $35 each and Confederate-flag tote bags for $25 each.

Kanye went from arrogant to sentimental. Sometime in the two-hour show included a tribute to his mom, Donda West, who died in 2007. The show was part of West's 23-city, seven-week North American tour, his first solo musical jaunt in five years.

The elaborate set design included a 60 foot mountain and he was also rapping at the summit. It wasn't enough to bring the sacred cow. Missing from the audience was baby mama Kim Kardashian, who tweeted her support ahead of the show. She was there in spirit, or in shirt, as West wore a T-shirt bearing her image backstage before the show. The shirt showed the curvy reality star in pearls with his album name "Yeezus" written across her chest.

Kardashian has said she will attend several of the concerts and may even bring their baby daughter, North West with her.

Next stop for the tour is Brooklyn's Barclay's Center and Madison Square Garden next month.Kanye West started his bizarrely titled "Yeezus Tour" in Seattle, Washington. The concert was complete with 12 "disciples" and even a demon.
