Kanye West has officially announced tour dates for his ‘Saint Pablo’ tour! So far, the tour dates are from August 25th to October 29th. Finally, after his album The Life Of Pablo being out for 2 months, people will be able to hear his much-loved songs live.
The 22-time grammy award winner announced the 29-city tour on Twitter by simply posting the link to his website. He’ll be bringing his latest work to New York, Boston, Atlanta, Miami, Toronto, Dallas, Chicago, Los Angeles and much more.
He’ll be playing to crowds of 18,000 and upwards, including the Bell Centre in Montreal (21,200). Unfortunately, European Yeezy fans will be disappointed. So far, Kanye has only announced dates for a North American tour. This is the first time in 3 years that he’ll be returning to North American arenas.
TIDAL members can purchase tickets through a special presale on Thursday June 16th while all tickets go on sale Saturday 18th.
Kanye’s latest release is proving to be a success and a popular follow-up from his previous albums. (Yeezus, Watch The Throne, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, 808s & Heartbreak, Graduation, Late Registration, The College Dropout)
The Life of Pablo debuted on April 4th at no.1 on the Billboard top 200 which was quite remarkable, given that the album had already been available on TIDAL for over a month and, according to Billboard, was illegally downloaded half a million times.
“This is a messy album that feels like it was made that way on purpose, after the laser-sharp intensity of Yeezus,” says Rolling Stone about The Life of Pablo.
The name for the ‘Saint Pablo’ tour clearly derives from the title of his 7th album. We believe ‘Saint’ might be referring to the name of his 6-month-old, 2nd child to Kim Kardashian.
Tickets are currently on presale here.
