Yesterday, Yeezus himself, Kanye West, announced a slew of tour dates for his latest, seventh consecutive #1 album, The Life Of Pablo, which was released on February 14th, 2016. The first album to debut at the top of the Billboard 200 album chart based on streaming only. In the first 10 days of its release, the album has streamed over 250 million times and reportedly doubled the streaming service’s subscriber base from one million to 2.5 million.
Unlike most albums, which are usually complete once they’re released, TLOP is still changing. West has been changing songs and uploading new versions as he sees fit. On June 14th, Kanye released the song “Saint Pablo” featuring artist, Sampha, via Tidal. According to Kanye’s label, Def Jam, West will continue to change the album. “In the months to come, Kanye will release new updates, new versions and new iterations of the album,” the label said in a statement.
The North American tour, promoted exclusively by Live Nation, will kick off on August 25th at Banker’s Life Arena in Indianapolis, IN. West will visit nearly 40 cities across the U.S. and Canada including dates in New York City, Los Angeles, Toronto, Chicago, Montreal, Detroit, Washington DC, Miami and more.
Kim Kardashian tweeted yesterday that she would live-stream some of the tour. Tickets go on sale Saturday, June 18 at LiveNation.com. TIDAL members will have access to a special presale beginning on Thursday, June 16th at 10:00 am local.
