Kanye West Close to Announcing Tour Dates in Support of 'The Life of Pablo'
Kanye West will be storming stages in support of his seventh studio album The Life of Pablo, a source close to the rapper/designer tells Billboard. Dates could be revealed within the next month.
Earlier this month, 'Ye hosted a ticketed event at New York's Madison Square Garden for a simultaneous Yeezy Season 3 fashion show and TLOP listening, attended by approximately 20,000 people.
Sources have previously told Billboard that West is pondering several release strategies with Def Jam and Universal Music Group for Pablo as well as a possible physical version. The TLOP outing, first reported by EW, would mark his first tour since 2013's Yeezus trek, where Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar was a supporting act.
West also announced on Twitter that another album is due this summer. He recently previewed a new track at Los Angeles' 1OAK club, where he played the braggadocious cut "Saint Pablo (Closest Thing to Einstein)," an offering not on the Tidal version of Pablo.
He is also a headliner at this year's Governors Ball Music Festival at Randall's Island Park in New York City on June 3-5, his only festival appearance in the U.S. this summer.
