West could be back for a proper tour for the first time since 2013
Reports released today (February 25) have suggested that Kanye West is shortly to announce a tour in support of his new album ‘The Life of Pablo’.
West played Madison Square Garden in New York to around 20,000 fans ahead of the launch of the new album, offering a preview of much of the album’s content on February 11.
Sources close to West have told Billboard that the rapper is set to announce a full tour in support of the seventh album some time within a month. There is no indication where the tour might head just yet.
West has been particularly vociferous on social media around the release of his new album, including revealing today (February 25) that a follow-up release may come as early as this summer.
He also slammed the Grammy Awards in a series of tweets, criticising the awards ceremony for “being way off” and “completely out of touch”.
He continued to diss the event before randomly announcing that he has a new album coming this summer.
The rapper then posted a series of bizarre outspoken tweets, with one declaring: “The world needs a guy like me. The world needs somebody to not be scared and tell his truth. You won’t always agree with me but I’m gon always be me. I’m woke!”
