Kanye West keeps busy. The past few years he's been Watch(ing) the Throne with Jay-Z, avoiding the tabloids (with limited success) with Kim Kardashian, siring a daughter (the actually named North West), and releasing a new album, Yeezus, earlier in 2013. But there's one thing that he hasn't been doing – touring. That's about to change. West starts his Yeezus Tour–his first solo tour in five years–at KeyArena on Oct 19. In addition to ubiquitous hits like "Gold Digger" and "Jesus Walks," expect plenty of material from the ferocious horror punk-toned Yeezus. Oakland rapper Kendrick Lamar, who played to a packed KeyArena crowd as an afternoon headliner at Bumbershoot 2013, joins West as the opening act.
Tickets for Kanye West at KeyArena go on sale this Friday, September 13 at 10am at ticketmaster.com or by phone at 800-745-3000. Tickets start at $36.
