Kanye West to tour, judge the arenas of 23 North American cities this fall

Kanye West has announced a fairly extensive run of North American tour dates, his first solo outing in five years. Considering West’s last run consisted of floating, glowing stages, and he’s recently performed with ballerinas and in front of pictures of lynching trees, the run should be something to see, or at least to gape at awkwardly. The Yeezus Tour kicks off Oct. 19 in Seattle, and will stop in 23 cities over the course of seven weeks. Kendrick Lamar will open, and tickets go on sale for the whole shebang Friday, Sept. 13. A full list of dates is below.
