It is pretty common for us music lovers to come up with creative ways to sneak into festivals and gigs. But forget jumping fences and fake wristbands, one Aussie has triumphed all with his latest scheme.
Grey Ghost was able to edge his way into the backstage area with the likes of Childish Gambino and Chance The Rapper, by dressing head-to-toe in Kanye West gear.
Ghost shared the incredible story on his Instagram account:
“Craziest and most hilarious day of my life. Here’s how it went down: woke at 5:30 am, got thru the gates as they opened. Spent a packet on the Church Merch dusty custom top & bottoms.”
“Watched the show in the guest area standing next to the entire Kardashians, Jayden & Willow Smith, Justin Bieber & Idris Elba lol. Then after the show, I realised that security were pushing back everyone except the band/choir whose outfits were all pretty much the same as the Merch I bought.”
“So I put that shit on quick smart and literally danced into the backstage area with the choir as if I was part of the show.”
“Ended up hanging alongside Kanye, Chance The Rapper & Kim K & then got to meet my biggest idol Donald Glover (who was as gracious and cool as you’d expect). I hung out got photos as if I was part of the choir, poured myself a champagne, grabbed a bagel and peaced the fuck out.”
Kanye West has infamously expensive merch, which might seem like a pretty ridiculous and unjustifiable purchase. But, Ghost clearly got a return on his investment far greater than expected. Check out Grey Ghost’s Instagram post below.
