Back to it: Kanye West got back to business and returned to the stage for the first time on Friday night since the terrifying robbery
The Famous hitmaker dressed in his mixed print tee and matching baggy trousers as he performed his hits to his fans.
Harnessed onto his floating stage, Kanye worked a pair of his own high top Yeezys as he slowly moved over the crowd below.
Not once speaking after the music started, the 39-year-old held the mic firmly in his glove covered hands as he worked up the energy in the sold-out venue.

The star's triumphant return to the stage comes after he cut his performance at the Meadow Music and Art Festival short after he was told of Kim's raid halfway through his headline set.
Kim was robbed by five armed men wearing ski masks and clothes with police markings, who entered the building at around 3am after the concierge let them in.
Handcuffed and at gunpoint, he then led them to the starlet's flat. Kim reportedly 'begged for her life' and told the gunmen she had children at home when two of them entered her room and held the gun to her head.

Their daughter, North, three, and 10-month-old son Saint, are not believed to have been in the room at the time.
The men stole a jewellery box worth €6 million ($6.7 million/ £5.24 million) and a ring worth €4 million ($4.5 million/ £3.5 million), prompting fears that the valuables were personal ones, and not just jewellery Kim was borrowing for fashion week.
Kim and her family were placed under police protection at the George V Palace hotel after the incident, and a spokesperson told DailyMail.com she is 'badly shaken but physically unharmed'.

Meanwhile, Kanye has been praised by the Meadows Music & Arts Festival organisers for how he dealt with cutting short his set.
The 39-year-old rapper stopped his headline performance at the New York event after an hour on Sunday evening, citing a 'family emergency', after learning of wife Kim's ordeal.
Event bosses think the fact he gave a reason for an early departure made the crowd more understanding.
Founders Entertainment's Jordan Wolowitz said: 'I happened to be backstage when it went down, so we all dealt with it in real time.

'I think the team handled it as smoothly as they could in terms of getting Kanye out of there safely and, to Kanye's credit, having the instincts to say that he had a family emergency before he dropped the mic and walked off stage really helped things.
'If he had said nothing and just walked off, there could have been potential crowd issues so the situation went about as well as it could in terms of everyone's safety and well-being.
'The news, as the whole world knows, broke within the hour, so I think that for people leaving the festival looking at social media, it just blew up everywhere.
'We're just really happy that his family is okay and everything seems to be good with them.'
Well wishes: Festival chiefs praised the star for the way he handled cutting his set short
