Kid Cudi kills it at Vancouver concert

Kid Cudi outside Thunderbird arena at UBC in Vancouver Tuesday night in a photograph by Eli Krag

Kid Cudi, wearing a space suit, danced, rapped and "killed it" for a few thousand fans at UBC's Thunderbird arena last night.

The 29 year old rapper from Cleveland, Ohio, told the audience he wondered why he hadn't come back to Vancouver sooner.  A fan said the highlight of the concert was MuchoMegaMix (video below.)  "The response was insane."

The audience was made up of loyal fans, one who called the concert the best he'd ever been to.

Outside the stadium, he posed for photographs with fans and signed autographs.  In his own pursuit of happiness (video below) one fan even asked Cudi to sign his name to his passport.
