The seven week, 23-city North American tour presented by AEG Live - in support of his gold album Yeezus, the most critically acclaimed new album of 2013 and the sixth consecutive #1 album of his storied career. West – a legendary live performer - combines state-of-the-art staging, production, and lighting design with his unmatched aesthetic, visionary creative mind, and an increasingly impressive catalogue of hits spanning his decade-long career. To date, West has sold over 30 million albums and over 78 million digital tracks worldwide.
Joining West in exclusive support on “The Yeezus Tour” will be Top Dawg Entertainment’s own Kendrick Lamar, who has emerged as one of the-brightest young talents in hip-hop today. Lamar’s debut album good kid, m.A.A.d city, released last October, was recently certified platinum by the RIAA.
“The Yeezus Tour” is West’s first major itinerary since his “Watch The Throne” tour with Jay Z in 2011 - the highest grossing tour in hip-hop history – and his first solo tour since 2008’s critically acclaimed “Glow In The Dark” tour. Recently, the Washington Post hailed West as “a visionary who’s managed to tweak the serial rhythms that dictate so much of our pop culture diet. He doesn’t do cliffhangers. He jumps off…We gasp, gawk and wonder, ‘Where will he land?’”
West’s recent effort Yeezus has been hailed by critics as the album of the year; The New York Times raved “the album is one long, efficient, inventive kick in the head,” while the Daily News agreed that YEEZUS was “punk in attitude, genius in execution.” Rolling Stone argued the album was “a brilliant, obsessive-compulsive career auto-correct…This isn’t just a way to stay ahead of the competition; it’s a way to stay ahead of himself.” The New Yorker echoed the sentiment, proclaiming YEEZUS as “technically breathtaking…Twenty years from now, West’s previous records will remain important, but a new generation may first gravitate to the lean vibrancy of this one.” USA Today weighed in with “…a polarizing, multi-layered body of work that probably will be debated all summer. Who does that besides Kanye West?” Entertainment Weekly summed things up with “Kanye West has gone rogue again. Did you expect anything less? The job of an innovator, of course, is to keep innovating… …he pushes the envelope aesthetically.”
West again pushed the envelope at the 30th anniversary 2013 MTV VMAs, with his visually stunning, silhouetted performance of “Blood On The Leaves,” from Yeezus. The performance made VMA history, marking West’s seventh showcase at the awards spectacular, tying him with Madonna as the two artists with the most number of VMA performances. West has delivered some of the most visually stunning and memorable - and controversial - performances in the annals of the MTV VMAs.
West now readies his powerful, innovative live performance for his first major solo tour in five years.
