Kanye West performed his track 'Bound 2' on US television show 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon' last night (September 16).

It was the first time the rapper has performed the 'Yeezus' closer live and he was joined onstage by Charlie Wilson, who sang his hook from the track. He was also backed by The Roots and a full choir – watch footage of the performance below.

Next week, Kanye West will perform on the first in a new series of BBC2's Later... With Jools Holland. West will appear on both the live show on Tuesday, September 17 and the longer, pre-recorded Friday night episode (September 20). Appearing alongside West will be Kings Of Leon, Drenge, Sting, Lorde and Bill Medley, one half of The Righteous Brothers. Other artists confirmed to appear on 'Later...' over the new series include Pixies, Chvrches, Janelle Monae, Goldfrapp and Franz Ferdinand.

Last week, West announced plans for a US tour alongside Kendrick Lamar. Specific dates and venues for the tour have not yet been revealed but the jaunt will mark Kanye's first solo tour in five years. Tweeting his announcement, he wrote: "TOUR" alongside a poster, which you can see below. Though Kanye has toured alongside Jay Z around the 'Watch The Throne' tour and played intermittent solo dates around the world, the dates with Kendrick Lamar will be his first lone venture since 2008.

Kanye West released 'Yeezus' in June of this year, with the album subsequently debuting at Number One in the Official UK Albums Chart. Earlier this week, it was reported that the rapper had recruited Miley Cyrus to work with him on a remix of his track 'Black Skinhead'.
