Kanye West Announces ‘Yeezus’ Tour, Kendrick Lamar Is Special Guest
Kanye West has thrown a large number of curveballs with his surprise appearances, the promotional and non-promotional efforts behind ‘Yeezus’ and his war against paparazzi in 2013. His latest? The Chi-town MC has announced the Yeezus tour, his first solo trek in five years.
Kendrick Lamar — who hasn’t taken any losses in what seems like a while — will be the tour’s special guest.
West toured with Jay Z for the famous Watch the Throne tour, but this performance spree will be his first since the well-received worldwide Glow in the Dark tour. This is a North American journey, and it’s set to include trips to Madison Square Garden and Barclays Center (surprise Jay Z appearance?).
Lamar isn’t just the most critically acclaimed rapper around but also one of the busiest. This year, he went on a college tour with Steve Aoki, a world tour and performed at the Made In America Festival. The ‘good kid, m.A.A.d. city’ creator isn’t scheduled for appearances at MSG, Barclays Center or the MGM Grand Arena, however.
Check out the tour dates below.
