Kanye West announces ‘Glow In The Dar’k tour

Lupe Fiasco, N.E.R.D. and Rihanna will join him

Kanye West has announced that he will head out on the road this year on a jaunt called the ‘Glow In The Dark’ tour.

The rap superstar whose ‘Graduation’ album last year famously won a head-to-head in album sales against 50 Cent’s ‘Curtis’, posted the announcement on his blog revealing that Lupe Fiasco, N.E.R.D and ‘Umbrella’ star Rihanna will join him on the outing.

The tour will also enable live sets from Child Rebel Soldier, the collaboration between West, Pharrell Williams and Lupe Fiasco, although this has not been confirmed.

The trio last year released a track entitled ‘Us Placers’ and are expected to release an album this year.

Watch this space for tour dates, expected to be revealed shortly.
