UPDATE #1: Tour dates have been revealed. You can view the full itinerary at the end of this post.
Original post: It may only be 9AM, but it’s probably safe to say that the rest of hip hop can go ahead and take the day off.
Taking to Twitter in his signature unannounced way, Kanye West posted an image this morning with a message that simply reads “TOUR.” The image appears to be a promotional poster for the long-rumored Yeezus tour, which will serve as West’s first solo outing in five years (he previously toured with Jay Z for Watch The Throne). You can view the poster below.
A footnote at the bottom of the image adds that Kendrick Lamar will be joining the tour as direct support. No
dates, on sale times, or additional openers have been revealed.
We’re on Kanye time as of now, so follow UTG on Twitter and we’ll update you the moment more information becomes available. Praise Yeezus.
