“The Saint Pablo Tour” will hit nearly 40 cities across the United States and Canada, including New York, Los Angeles, Toronto, Chicago, Montreal, Detroit, Washington and Miami, among others, according to Live Nation, which is promoting the event.
West made history earlier this year when “The Life of Pablo” became the first album to debut at the top of the Billboard 200 album chart based exclusively on streaming – the seventh number one album for the enigmatic music star.
West, who is married to reality television star Kim Kardashian, continues to pursue a side career in fashion design, in addition to his announced plans to run for president in 2020.
He also said earlier this year that he was $53 million (R810-million) in debt and asked his legions of fans to subscribe to Tidal, because he needed money to bring his “beautiful ideas to the world.”
