A fan tried - and failed - to climb Kanye West's infamous floating stage during a recent date on the rapper's Saint Pablo Tour.

Fan-shot footage spotted by Complex shows the concert-goer at Atlanta's Philips Arena grabbing onto the side of the stage before falling back into crowd after the rapper waves him off. Watch below from two different angles.






Kanye West recently revealed that his innovative floating stage concept took eight months of planning and involved "traveling around the world meeting with the best stage designers".

"I wanted people to get into it and have a fun time, [and] make it not be just about watching the artist, but people watching their friends and singing along to the lyrics and being able to see themselves, their outfits," he told E! News after his tour's first show in Indianapolis on August 25.

The rapper added that his aim was to "take the concert experience to another level, [so] it's not just about what you're seeing on the screen, or what you're seeing me do on the stage, but what you and your friends are doing".

He also said that he looked to number of artists for inspiration including Bono, The Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, Daft Punk, Radiohead, Trent Reznor and movie director Ridley Scott.

"I can stretch my hands, like the song says, I can stretch out in this arena, and give the crowd something they haven't seen before," he explained.
