Kanye West, the 21-time Grammy Award-winner and 52-tim Grammy nominee, will return to the road this fall for THE YEEZUS TOUR in support of his gold album YEEZUS, the most critically acclaimed new album of 2013 and the 6th consecutive #1 album of his career! Presented by AEG LIVE, this North American tour will last 7 weeks and make it to 23 cities. The tour opens on October 19, 2013 and will make its way to Los Angeles where Kanye will perform at STAPLES Center on Saturday, October 26 at 7:30pm. Joining Kanye on THE YEEZUS TOUR will be Kendrick Lamar, who has emerged as one of the-brightest young talents in hip-hop today.
THE YEEZUS TOUR is Kanye West’s first major tour since his WHAT THE THRONE tour with Jay-Z in 2011 – the highest grossing tour in hip-hop history. THE YEEZUS TOUR is also his first solo tour since his 2008 GLOW IN THE DARK tour. As Kanye makes his big debut back on the stage, the legendary live performer will unquestionably blow away the audience.
Kanye combines state-of-the-art staging, production, and lighting design with his unmatched aesthetic, visionary creative mind, and an increasingly impressive catalogue of hits spanning his decade-long career. Furthermore, his new album has received nothing but incredible reviews.
West’s recent effort YEEZUS has been hailed by critics as the album of the year; The New York Times raved "the album is one long, efficient, inventive kick in the head,” while the Daily News agreed that YEEZUS was "punk in attitude, genius in execution." Rolling Stone argued the album was "a brilliant, obsessive-compulsive career auto-correct…This isn't just a way to stay ahead of the competition; it's a way to stay ahead of himself.” The New Yorker echoed the sentiment, proclaiming YEEZUS as "technically breathtaking…Twenty years from now, West’s previous records will remain important, but a new generation may first gravitate to the lean vibrancy of this one." Entertainment Weekly summed things up with "Kanye West has gone rogue again. Did you expect anything less? The job of an innovator, of course, is to keep innovating… …he pushes the envelope aesthetically.”
Kanye will unquestionably put on the show of the year so make sure to purchase your concert tickets now. For more information please visit http://www.staplescenter.com/events/detail/kanye-west.
