Fans are trying to sell grass claimed to be from Kanye’s Coachella Sunday Service

Kanye West brought church to Coachella – and now his fans are trying to cash in on the grass they claim they stood on while taking in the usually exclusive show. 

The rapper kicked off the final day of the two-weekend music festival in Indio, California with his Sunday Service concert featuring Gospel renditions of his work performed with a church choir.

In the past the show has only been witnessed by select family and friends, but on April 21 the performer is believed to have graced 50,000 people with the show, and now some of them are attempting to sell the grass they say they stood on at the time on eBay, calling it ‘spiritual’ and ‘holy’ grass.

Prices for the lawn clippings range from a modest $7.90 (plus the cost of shipping) to a whopping $435, though that auction comes with a pair of $50 ‘Jesus Walks’ socks which were sold by Kanye at the show. 

The socks were among a spread of pricey memorabilia for sale in a merchandise tent emblazoned with the letters ‘CHURCH CLOTHES,’ with prices hitting as high as $225.

The prices sure didn’t scare off festivalsgoers who took in the show in person.

A line snaked around the campground as Coachella attendees waited to grab their threads before Kanye’s service began.

The Sunday Service gave festivalgoers – and those streaming from home – a peek into what is usually an ultra-exclusive Los Angeles affair. 

Kanye and wife Kim Kardashian have been hosting the hour-long concerts at secret locations, inviting the likes of Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, and Courtney Love, since January. 

The concerts have taken place everywhere from Kim and Kanye’s home to the Adidas headquarters.   

While Kim often shares snippets of the concerts on her Instagram, Kanye’s Coachella concert is the first time the public has been given the chance to see the show in full.
