One of the most acclaimed tours of 2013 – KANYE WEST’s sold-out THE YEEZUS TOUR – is coming to Australia in May. The limited run, presented by Live Nation, will launch on May 2 at Perth Arena and conclude on May 10 in Sydney at Qantas Credit Union Arena.
Last in Australia to top the bill on the 2012 Big Day Out, THE YEEZUS TOUR will be Kanye’s first headline shows here since 2008’s epic Glow in the Dark tour.
With more than 21 million albums sold worldwide, Kanye is the most potent force in music today. The 21-time Grammy Award-winner released Yeezus in June last year to acclamation from critics and fans alike, achieving his first ever ARIA chart number 1, and following up his Platinum releases 2010’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, and 2011’s stunning Jay-Z collaboration, Watch The Throne
Special guest for these shows will be Pusha T, making his Australian debut.
Signed to West’s label, GOOD Music, he has appeared on GOOD Music's compilation album Cruel Summer five times, including the singles ‘Mercy’ (with Kanye West, Big Sean and 2 Chainz) and ‘New God Flow’ (with West). While working on the compilation, he was also working on his debut studio album, My Name Is My Name. The album was released to critical acclaim on October 8, 2013, by GOOD Music and Def Jam.
