To date, Kanye West has sold over 21 Million albums and over 66 Million digital tracks worldwide.

The seven week tour of the U.S. and Canada will open October 19th at the Key Arena in Seattle, and will stop at STAPLES Center on October 26th. Joining Kanye 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 in October of last year, was recently certified platinum by the RIAA.
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.
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.” West now readies his powerful, innovative live performance for his first major solo tour in 5 years.
