Kanye West’s Yeezus tour had its fair share of ups and downs in 2013. However, a new leg set for post-Valentine’s Day 2014, was announced which will see Ye’ dwelling in the Northeast region of the States, along with limited tour dates in Canada as well.
Following a number of setbacks and canceled dates, Ye’ finally revived the Hip-Hop spectacular in mid-November. You may remember the truck carrying the video truss and a 60-foot circular LED screen ended up in an accident. The truck was making its way to the Vancouver stop only to be derailed, leaving the truss and screen damaged. Nevertheless, Kanye prevailed, turning in one of the highest grossing tours of 2013. Just because the ball dropped doesn’t mean this tour is ready to draw its final curtain call.
The new leg of the tour will resume at Bryce Jordan Center in University Park, PA (February 13) and conclude ten days later at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, NY (February 23). According to the press release, “This run of shows will be the last chance for North American fans to see the Yeezus Tour's creative concept," which insinuates possible worldwide dates.
It is also not yet known who will open these shows. West for a majority had Kendrick Lamar dubbed as the Yeezus tour opener, with A Tribe Called Quest opening two of the NYC shows.
