One of the most acclaimed tours of 2013 – Kanye West’s sold-out The Yeezus Tour – is coming to Australia in May. The limited run, presented by Live Nation, will launch on May 2 at Perth Arena and conclude on May 10 in Sydney at Qantas Credit Union Arena.
Last in Australia to top the bill on the 2012 Big Day Out, The Yeezus Tour will be Kanye’s first headline shows here since 2008’s epic Glow in the Dark tour.
With more than 21 million albums sold worldwide, Kanye is the most potent force in music today. The 21-time Grammy Award-winner released Yeezus in June last year to acclamation from critics and fans alike, achieving his first ever ARIA chart number 1, and following up his Platinum releases 2010’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, and 2011’s stunning Jay-Z collaboration, Watch The Throne.
Special guest for these shows will be Pusha T, making his Australian debut.
“Brilliant…the current Yeezus tour is more than just a concert. It’s an extravaganza of music and theater… a combination which makes [Kanye] the most fascinating musical figure of our time and makes this tour an unmissable spectacle.” – New York Post
“Awe-inspiring…West’s energy level was extraordinary from the very beginning…truly electrifying…The stage as imagined and executed by West was truly something to behold.” – Rolling Stone
