Kayne West announces US tour

The rapper-producer hits the road in October

Kayne West has confirmed a massive American tour.

The rapper-producer, whose new album ‘Late Registration’ has topped the US charts, will tour North America from October.

“Performing live is the reason why we make this music, spend so much time and thought and craft on it,” explained West “It’s about the fans, and I love having the opportunity to bring this music — that I’ve poured my heart and soul into — to them.”

He added: “I think about how audiences are going to respond to hooks and intros and certain lines when I’m in the studio recording. Bringing these songs to the stage is the ultimate fulfillment of the creative process.”
