Kanye West announces second intimate London date
Rap superstar will play an extra night at Hammersmith Appolo on February 23
Kanye West has announced a second intimate London date.
Yesterday (February 14), the rapper announced a surprise concert in London on February 24. Tickets for the show sold out almost instantly this morning when they went on general sale, but now an extra date on February 23 has been announced. Tickets are onsale now.
West's appearances 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.
