Kanye West played live for the first time since the release of his latest album Yeezus last night, appearing unannounced on stage with Travi$ Scott. Watch footage of the gig below. 

It was believed that Yeezy's recent fatherhood was the main reason for him not touring to promote the LP - despite rumours of more shows coming soon. 

West's appearance saw Travi$ Scott talking to the audience at the El Rey Theatre in LA and asking the technicians to shut off the lights. After getting the crowd warmed up, music began before Kanye appeared from the shadows to peform with Scott to a flood of applause. The duo then performed a rendition of 'New Slaves' together.

Kanye West noteably played 'New Slaves' on Saturday Night Live, when Ben Affleck was hosting. West showcased several tracks from his new album in live shows throughout the period leading up the release of Yeezus which has had a divided critics and fans alike. 

More shows are believed to be on the horizon, after Yeezus contributing producer took to Reddit earlier this year, where he was questioned about whether there was going to be a Yeezus tour and whether he would be taking part in Kanye's band.

He replied: "Yes and yes."

While West went out on a joint tour with Jay-Z to promote their collaborative album, Watch The Throne, and he has recently performed a number of high-profile festival shows, the US rapper has gone on a solo world tour in a number of years after he didn't do so for 2010's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
