Kanye West announces surprise London concert – tickets
Superstar rapper will appear at Hammersmith Apollo on February 24
Kanye West has announced a surprise concert in London later this month.
The rapper will perform a headline show at London's Hammersmith Apollo on Sunday, February 24. The gig follows a number of one-off performances West has been giving in America and Abu Dhabi this year. Tickets for the show go on pre-sale today (February 14) with general sale tickets available from 9am Friday (February 15) morning.
West's appearance at Hammersmith Apollo will be his first since touring the UK with Jay-Z on the Watch The Throne tour in 2012. The duo played their joint album across arenas and also headlined Radio 1's Hackney Weekender in East London last May.
Meanwhile, Kanye West has reportedly banned photographs of him wearing a leather kilt at a Hurricane Sandy benefit gig last year.
According to reports, the rapper has asked that picture agency Getty Images to delete every image they have of him wearing the black leather number onstage at the 12-12-12 benefit gig. The rapper appears to just have problem with that particular fashion faux pas as all other images of him are still available through the agency.
