Kanye West has confirmed that he will tour in support of his latest album, The Life of Pablo.
On Friday night (April 8), after tweeting thanks to fans who helped make TLOP a likely No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200, the rapper wrote that he’s “working on the tour designs now.”
I’m so happy that you guys like the music… I’m working on the tour designs now…

West didn’t elaborate further on what his upcoming tour production will entail or when it might start. In late February, a source close to the rapper told Billboard that tour dates could arrive in March, although that didn’t happen.
Earlier this year ‘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.
TLOP outing would mark his first tour since 2013’s Yeezus trek, where Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar was a supporting act.
West is also a headliner at this year’s Governors Ball Music Festival at Randall’s Island Park in New York on June 3-5, his only festival appearance in the U.S. this summer.
