UPDATE: Ticketmaster is now offering refunds to concert goers.

In an email to fans who purchased their tickets via Ticketmaster, tickets to last night’s show are being refunded at the original point of purchase. Refunds will be credited to the purchasers' account automatically. Those refunds should take about 5-7 business days to post. 

ORIGINAL POST: It was one of the most highly anticipated concerts at the new Golden 1 Center.

And Kanye West cut it short. 

After arriving late, the famous rapper reportedly cut his concert short after three songs and several rants. ABC10's Frances Wang was tweeting at the show and said those rants included mentions of Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, Mark Zuckerberg, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

Captured on video by concert goers, West told the audience he heard Beyoncé refused to perform at the MTV Video Music Awards unless she won Video of the Year over him, and he also urged her husband Jay Z to call him.

West said he was putting his life and career at risk by talking to the fans in the audience "like this." West's representative did not immediately respond to request for comment.

She also tweeted he couldn't have been on stage more than 30 minutes. This follows a show in San Jose last Thursday where West showered concert goers with political rants in between songs.

The Golden 1 Center tweeted just after midnight they'll have more information for fans who are asking for a refund soon.
