Kanye West Bringing His Tour To Australia
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.17.2014
Billboard reports that Live Nation and Kanye Will will be bringing the Yeezus tour to Australia in May for five dates in the five major cities. General tickets go on sale February 24, while there will be earlier pre-sales with Live Nation and Ticketek.
Kanye's last Australia concert was in early 2012 on the Big day Out tour, and as a headliner at the Splendour in the Grass festival six months prior. This will be his first solo headlining tour since 2008. Pusha T will open on all shows, making his Australian debut. He's signed to West's label Good Music.
West's sixth album Yeezus hit #1 in Australia in June. It was promoted from 2-1 after ARIA admitted a "data error" that made the first charts inaccurate. The Yeezus tour began in October with several North American dates, presented by AEG Live.
Here are the dates:
May 2 -- Perth Arena
May 4 -- Adelaide Entertainment Centre
May 6 -- Melbourne Rod Laver Arena
May 9 -- Brisbane Entertainment Centre
May 10 -- Sydney Qantas Credit Union Arena
