Kanye West Announces North American Tour Dates
Kanye West has annouced the dates for his upcoming "The Yeezus Tour," which kicks off on Oct. 19 in Seattle, Wash. The North American tour will cover 23 cities in seven weeks, including Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, Brooklyn, New York City, Miami and Houston.
Kendrick Lamar will serve as the opening act, and the tour will also include a to-be-annouced "special guest."
West's baby mama Kim Kardashian is expected to join him on tour, TMZ.com reported in May. The touring company was given instructions to obtain items such as cribs and soundproof hotel rooms.
The rapper recently made headlines for making about $3 million for performing in Kazakhstan for President Nursultan Nazarbayev's grandson’s wedding. Nazarbayev is considered by some to be an extreme dictator who rigs elections.
