Kanye West The Saint Pablo Tour
September 21, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Kanye West – the 22-time Grammy Award winning, visionary multi-disciplinary artist who has sold over 30 Million albums worldwide and has twice been named to Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world will perform at the Frank Erwin Center on Sept. 21. For the first time, Kanye will bring to life songs from his seventh consecutive #1 album “The Life Of Pablo,” which made history as the first album to debut at the top of the Billboard 200 album chart based on streaming only.
Kanye returns to North American arenas for the first time in three years. 2013’s historic Yeezus Tour saw jubilant, sold-out crowds and unprecedented acclaim. Reviewing the tour opener, the Seattle Times raved “A deific spectacle of a set…a two-hour rap-opera of a performance that was grandiose yet minimal, unsettling yet inspirational…There are very few modern artists with the kind of vision, ambition, and means to execute it as Kanye West right now…a distinct statement of his combined artistic ambition, penchant for excess, and desire to simply outdo every other entertainer out right now.” “Awe-inspiring,” said Rolling Stone. “Truly electrifying…The stage as imagined and executed by West was truly something to behold.”
“Brilliant,” raved the New York Post. “The Yeezus tour is more than just a concert. It’s an extravaganza of music and theater…a combination which makes him the most fascinating musical figure of our time and makes this tour an unmissable spectacle.”
