Billboard reports that Kanye West has announced a 23-date tour called "The Yeezus Tour", presented by AEG Live. It will start on October 19 in Seattle and end on December 7 in Houston. Kendrick Lamar will open on all but five shows. It stops in Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto, Boston and New York City, where West will perform in Brooklyn and Manhattan with only four days between them.
He previously toured with Jay Z in 2011 for their Watch the Throne album. Yeezus is his first solo tour since 2008's "Glow in the Dark" tour. Tickets go on sale on September 13.
