Rapper's takeover of French capital begins tomorrow (March 7)

Kanye West has announced plans to play four shows in Paris, beginning tomorrow night (March 7).

West will follow up his London show this week with four dates in the French capital. The rapper will play the four consecutive gigs at the Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris during his stay during Paris Fashion Week.

Tickets are available here. The performances are billed as “A film by Steve McQueen” and additionally involve “photography by Jackie Nickerson”. Steve McQueen is the Oscar winning director behind 12 Years A Slave, Shame and Hunger.

West arrives in Paris having spent the past week in London, speaking to students at Oxford University on Monday and playing a tiny gig in Camden on Tuesday.

The rapper also enlisted the help grime MCs including Stormzy, Novelist and Skepta for his performance of new single ‘All Day’ at last week’s Brit Awards (February 25). It has since been reported that West and Skepta will collaborate.

This news came a day after the release of the studio version of ‘All Day’ which will lead up to West’s new album ‘So Help Me God’.
