Kanye West - Kanye West's train delayed by four hours

Kanye West's train was delayed by four hours as he headed to Wireless festival in London.

The 'Clique' rapper - who was performing at the event on Friday (04.07.14) - was stuck on a train taking him from Paris to the British capital city on Thursday night.

According to the Daily Mirror newspaper, the Eurostar stopped at Calais due to a ''technical fault'', leaving the star - and other passengers - stranded for several hours.

With soaring heat making the wait even more uncomfortable, they were taken back to Lille to change trains - and it is said Kanye was happy to pose for pictures with fans while they all waited.

The star - who will also perform at the festival tonight - had agreed to take to the stage both evenings after Friday night headliner Drake pulled out due to illness.

However, he was booed by the audience after ranting for 20 minutes mid-show about discrimination in the fashion industry.

According to previous reports, he told the crowd: ''I'm not going to mention any names but... Nike, Louis Vuitton and Gucci. Don't discriminate against me 'cos I'm a black man making music.''
