Kanye West announces The Saint Pablo Tour

2016-06-15 05:00

Los Angeles - Kanye West has announced his first North American tour in three years.

The Bound 2 rapper will kick off his The Saint Pablo Tour on 25 August at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis before visiting almost 40 cities throughout the US and Canada and wrapping the tour up at the newly instated T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on 29 October.

It will be the first time fans will get to hear Kanye perform the songs from his seventh studio LP The Life Of Pablo, which made history by being the only album to top the Billboard 200 chart just by being streamed and not physically released.

The last tour Kanye did of North America was in 2013 for his Yeezus Tour in support of his album of the same name.

The news comes after the 38-year-old musician was forced to call off his secret concert in New York on 5 June after a "riot" broke out on the street.

Kanye - who is married to Kim Kardashian West, with whom he has who has daughter North, two and six-month-old son Saint - was set to perform an intimate show at Webster Hall in Manhattan but was left with no choice but to axe the performance after hundreds of desperate fans descended on the venue, climbed on top of cars and scrambled over one another to get a glimpse of the rapper.

He was set to perform at the venue after his headline slot at the Governors Ball, held in the Big Apple, but he was left disappointed after it was called off due to bad weather.

However, although he didn't get to wow fans at the music event, he did perform at Hot 97's Summer Jam instead.

Tickets go on sale on Saturday 18 June through www.livenation.com.
