The hype for new Kanye shows is reaching astronomical levels. His attempted pop-up show in light of a cancelled festival set literally shut down a New York city block last week, and any whispers of a coming tour have made their own headlines. But the time for speculation has ended; Kanye has officially announced the ‘Saint Pablo Tour’ which will kick off in August.
Adding even more hype is the fact that this is an incredibly limited tour. There will only be two dozen shows, and it only covers select cities in the USA and Canada. Despite starting on August, 25, the run of shows will be over by October, 29. Nevertheless, this will be the first time that cuts from this year’s The Life of Pablo will be performed live, and it will be the first tour Kanye has embarked on since the Yeezus tour wrapped up in 2014.
Tickets to the ‘Saint Pablo Tour’ go on sale for TIDAL members this Thursday, June 16, with availability to the rest of the public on Friday, June 17. Head over to TIDAL for more info and the full tour schedule.
