Hip hop recording artist, songwriter, record producer, film director, and fashion designer from Chicago, Illinois, Kanye West is taking Yeezus on the road this fall with a seven-week North American tour simply dubbed "The Yeezus Tour." The run kicks off in Seattle starting October 19th and marks West's first major return to the road since 2011's Watch the Throne tour with Jay Z. Kendrick Lamar will support most dates.
"The Yeezus Tour" will mark the first time fans get to hear a bulk of the rapper's critically acclaimed material in a live setting, but that's not to say he hasn't been prepping for the moment. West made headlines earlier this week for performing last weekend in Kazakhstan at a wedding of the Kazakhstan president's grandson. He appeared at the MTV VMA Awards last month and delivered a hallowed performance of "Blood on the Leaves" and in May, performed "Black Skinhead" and "New Slaves" on the season finale of Saturday Night Live.
