Kanye West Announces Solo Tour, Comes to the Bay Area in October
Yeezy season approaching! Fuck what else ya'll got planned this October, because Kanye West just announced a solo tour -- a Yeezus solo tour, where we will presumably see the Divine Presence in a similar shadows/digital rendering/barking dogs visuals mode as his appearances on SNL and the VMAs.

Tickets go onsale Friday, Sept. 23. And look at the concert poster:
