Kanye West And Lady Gaga Announce Fame Kills Tour Dates

Announcement comes a day after West pledged to take time off following VMA outburst.

Despite [article id="1621529"]pledging to Jay Leno[/article] that he would take some time off to reassess his life in the wake of [article id="1621389"]his Taylor Swift bum-rush[/article] at Sunday night's Video Music Awards, Kanye West will be busy for much of the rest of the year thanks to the just-released dates for his Fame Kills co-headlining tour with Lady Gaga.

The tour, [article id="1618664"]announced earlier this summer[/article], will kick off November 10 in Phoenix and will keep the dynamic duo on the road through early 2010. A spokesperson for Gaga declined to confirm the dates listed on Pollstar, and spokespeople for West could not be reached for comment at press time.

[article id="1621478"]West has apologized three times[/article] for interrupting Swift's acceptance speech at the VMAs and told Leno that he had been working nonstop since his mother's death two years ago. While West went home empty-handed Sunday night — and, in fact, was [article id="1621404"]asked to leave the venue[/article] after the incident — Gaga provided one of the evening's highlights with her over-the-top, [article id="1621395"]blood-drenched performance of "Paparazzi"[/article] and a win in the Best New Artist category.
