The month of June has prompted big news from rapper Kanye West. Although the 39-year-old was forced to cancel his long-awaited headlining slot at Governors Ball earlier this month, festival organizers, along with West himself, are promising to deliver even bigger plans for fans of the artist and tickets are already as hot as the summer temps!
Last week, Kanye announced the dates for a summer/fall run penned The Saint Pablo tour, which will hit 32 stops from August-October. Tickets to see Kanye West went on sale last weekend and have hit the secondary market, where prices continue to rise for major stops across North America. After less than a week since the on-sale, resale tickets are averaging $197 for all scheduled stops. Kanye's two nights at Madison Square Garden in New York City on September 5 and 6 are on track to be two of his priciest performances, as tickets for both appearances are averaging $395 with the cheapest ticket priced at $145.
West will stop in other cities like Austin, where he'll perform at the Frank Erwin Center on September 21. Tickets for that stop are averaging $216, with the cheapest ticket available for $68. West is scheduled to play three consecutive performances in Los Angeles at The Forum towards the end of his tour on October 25, 26 and 27. These performances are currently averaging $179, with the cheapest ticket going for $80. Parking in Los Angeles can be secured easily and ahead of time through Parkwhiz.com.
In addition to his headlining run, it was recently announced that Kanye will front the bill of the newly announced The Meadows Music Festival in Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens, New York, which will take on October 1 and 2. The Weeknd, Chance the Rapper, Kygo, the 1975, Grimes and dozens of other top acts will also perform. All previous Gov Ball ticket buyers will be eligible for a pre-sale beginning Wednesday, June 22 at 11 a.m., with a general on-sale beginning the following day. General Admission 2-day passes start at $230, while 2-day VIP passes start at $495. Super VIP passes are available for fans looking to take it to the next level, and 2-day passes start at $1600.
Kanye West will be out on the road in support of his seventh studio record, The Life Of Pablo, which was released digitally back in February. West was last seen out on the road in 2013 on the Yeezus Trek tour, with supporting act Kendrick Lamar.
