Yeezy season approaches.
This fall, Kanye West is set to arrive at Oakland's Oracle Arena on October 22 as part of a 32-city tour called "Saint Pablo." A note on that name: It harkens back to the title of West's most recent album, The Life Of Pablo, which, it has been suggested, may refer to the apostle Paul — or else to several other Pablos, from Picasso to Escobar. Further, the youngest child of Kim Kardashian and Mr. West is named "Saint."
News of the tour was relayed by Rolling Stone, who write that general pre-sale tickets are available shortly, on June 18, at Live Nation. There's also a perk for Tidal subscribers, whom West may have led astray in the past (seeming to disingenuously suggest that his album would be available exclusively on that platform).That crowd will have access to pre-sale purchases starting June 16. American Express cardholders find themselves even more lucky, with pre-sale for them beginning today.
West's tour sets out on August 25 in Indianapolis and concludes on October 29 in Las Vegas. Los Angeles, New York, and West's native Chicago all receive two nights of shows, while, nestled between Seattle and LA performances, the Bay Area receives just one
Still, with so many performances overall, it's likely Kanye aims to lift himself out of the personal debt that he copped to earlier this year. Kanye puts himself at $53 million in the hole, a sum which he asked Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook) to help him out with (on Twitter) back in February.
