KANYE TO BE JOINED BY KENDRICK LAMAR
YEEZUS, KANYE’s 8th STUDIO ALBUM,
REIGNS AS THE MOST CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED
NEW ALBUM OF 2013
West now readies his powerful, innovative live performance for his first major solo tour in 5 years.
21-time Grammy Award®-winner Kanye West will return to the road this fall for THE YEEZUS TOUR - a 23-city North American tour presented by AEG Live - in support of his gold album YEEZUS, the most critically acclaimed new album of 2013 and the 6th consecutive #1 album of his storied career. West – a legendary live performer - combines state-of-the-art staging, production, and lighting design with his unmatched aesthetic, visionary creative mind, and an increasingly impressive catalogue of hits spanning his decade-long career. To date, Kanye West has sold over 21 Million albums and over 66 Million digital tracks worldwide.
THE YEEZUS TOUR is Kanye West’s first major itinerary since his WATCH THE THRONE tour with JAY Z in 2011 - the highest grossing tour in hip-hop history – and his first solo tour since 2008’s critically acclaimed GLOW IN THE DARK tour. Recently, the Washington Post hailed West as "a visionary who’s managed to tweak the serial rhythms that dictate so much of our pop culture diet. He doesn’t do cliffhangers. He jumps off…We gasp, gawk and wonder, ‘Where will he land?’”
West’s recent effort YEEZUS has been hailed by critics as the album of the year; The New York Times raved "the album is one long, efficient, inventive kick in the head,” while the Daily News agreed that YEEZUS was "punk in attitude, genius in execution." Rolling Stone argued the album was "a brilliant, obsessive-compulsive career auto-correct…This isn't just a way to stay ahead of the competition; it's a way to stay ahead of himself.” The New Yorker echoed the sentiment, proclaiming YEEZUS as "technically breathtaking…Twenty years from now, West’s previous records will remain important, but a new generation may first gravitate to the lean vibrancy of this one.
