After dropping more than enough hints over the past few months about his tour, Kanye West announced on his blog Wednesday (January 30) that the U.S. and Canadian leg of his Glow in the Dark Tour is set to feature N.E.R.D., Rihanna and Lupe Fiasco in supporting roles.
In two separate, sparse posts on his blog, West delivered the news.
The first post, titled “Get Ready!,” features portions of what appears to be a digitally enhanced tour poster without much information.
The second, titled “The End of the World as You Know It!!!,” features the full frame of the picture, which shows Kanye as a multicolor robot of sorts, with the words “Glow in the Dark Tour co-starring Rihanna, N.E.R.D., Lupe Fiasco” printed beneath.
A rep for West had not responded to MTV News’ request for comment or tour dates as of press time.
Currently, Lupe Fiasco is on a tour of his own, while the Pharrell-led N.E.R.D is putting the final touches on their third album, N*3*R*D. Rihanna, meanwhile, is in the studio working on the follow-up to her breakthrough album, last year’s Good Girl Gone Bad.
West recently finished up the European leg of his Glow in the Dark Tour, where he made numerous headlines. The outspoken rapper and producer delivered his first words about the sudden death of his mother, Donda West , during the string of shows.
West also picked up a new hobby: Connect Four . He posted pictures on his blog of himself and Beyoncé playing the board game during a break between shows. Video of a Connect Four battle between Jay-Z and Consequence surfaced online as well.
