During the Kanye West & Jay-Z “Watch The Throne Tour” Kanye & Jay for no apparent reason began performing the same song “Niggas In Paris” three times in a row before their encore.
At their Miami concert on November 15, 2011 at American Airlines Arena they performed “Niggas In Paris” five times in a row to close the show. The song was then played six times in a row at the TD Garden in Boston on November 21, 2011. Then it was performed seven times in a row on November 26, 2011 at The Palace of Auburn Hills in Detroit, Michigan. On December 1, 2011 at the United Center in Chicago, IL the duo performed the song eight times in a row. On December 12, 2011 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA, the song was played a total of nine times in a row, a record which would stand until the next night, when the duo performed the song ten times in a row.

Here’s a great clip of three of the ten in a row in Vancouver…
Finally, on June 1, 2012 during their first date in Paris (at the ‘Palais Omnisports de Bercy’), they set the record and performed “Niggas In Paris” eleven times in row. They claimed that the previous record was held by Los Angeles, when Jay-Z said :
“The record is held by L.A. with ten times, But this song isn’t called “Niggas in Los Angeles”, We gotta break that record and bring it to 11″.
11x – June 1, 2012 – Paris, France – Palais Omnisports de Bercy
If you have a lot of time on your hands here is the record setting performance…
I don’t know why I am ok with this but I actually think it’s kinda cool. I’d love to see The Beatles play “Get Back” eleven times in a row.
