BROOKLYN (September 6, 2013) – Twenty-one time Grammy Award®-winner (and 52-time Grammy® nominee) Kanye West will bring THE YEEZUS TOUR to Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Tuesday, November 19.
Tickets go on sale Friday, September 13 at 9 a.m. and can be purchased online via Ticketmaster by visiting www.barclayscenter.com or www.ticketmaster.com, or by calling 800-745-3000. Tickets are also available at the American Express Box Office at Barclays Center, located at 620 Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, starting Monday, September 16 at noon (if still available).
West will tour 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, Kanye West has sold over 21 million albums and more than 66 million digital tracks worldwide.
THE YEEZUS TOUR is Kanye 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 now readies his powerful, innovative live performance for his first major solo tour in 5 years.
