Yeezy announces new shows for February: is he coming to your town?
Kanye West has gone and shown that he's one of the hardest working names on the rap A-list after announcing a string of new performance dates to resurrect his Yeezus album tour. The largely east coast shows will give fans who missed out on the first round of shows a chance to experience the mind-bending extravagance of a Kanye West concert.
Kanye West Announces A String Of New Tour Dates.
Though it was thought that West had wrapped up the tour for his latest album, which was released in the summer, it appears that the rapper and new father has more to give where live performing is concerned.
During his supposedly "last" show at the end of December, Kanye gave a 30 minute long rant about life, which also included him vowing not to say anything inflammatory for some time. "This might be the last time y'all hear me talk s**t for a long time," he said. "Might be another, like, six months. At least. You're just gonna have to run back the interviews and s**t if you wanna hear some realness."
If This Is The Kind Of Thing That Goes On During The Tour, We're Not Surprised Kanye Wants More.
"So I'm letting you all know that this is the last Yeezus show," Kanye told the crowd at his Toronto concert, "and this is the last time you'll ever hear me say [anything] negative about anyone." Well we all know how easy it is for West to spew forth with such "realness" - which includes lengthy rants aimed at the Grammy awards and Nike - so we'll stay sceptical for the time being, especially now West has gone back on his vow that Toronto would be the last tour date.
The Shows Involve Kanye Climbing A Mountain On Stage.
Kanye's Yeezus shows have been extravagant affairs, with dancers, a Jesus Christ appearance, elaborate dress changes and even a mountain assembled on stage for the pompous star to rap atop. It'll be an experience to tell your grandchildren about: make sure you don't miss out.
