Kanye West's '808s & Heartbreak' Anniversary Tour Is Coming
Kanye West and fans recently celebrated the tenth anniversary of his game-changing album 808s & Heartbreak on Nov. 24, but the party is far from over. Frequent Kanye collaborator and producer Malik Yusef recently announced that an 808s & Heartbreak anniversary tour will hit the U.S. soon.
Unfortunately, Kanye will not be participating in the tour. The event will reportedly be sponsored and hosted by Yusef as a way to honor Ye's fourth studio album and its impact on hip-hop culture.
The tour will feature local artists performing renditions of tracks from the album. Each artist will be selected through an online voting system from cities around the U.S.
"Any musicians have the ability to be a part of the tour, as the musical acts will be curated through an open application audition," Yusef said in a press release. "Each artist or group will perform songs from the 808s & Heartbreak album in their own style, paying tribute to Kanye West's original tracks."
The anniversary tour will reportedly hit 15 major cities, kicking off in Los Angeles followed by New York, Atlanta, Las Vegas, and Miami. Its final stop will be in San Francisco.
Dates for the 808s & Heartbreak anniversary tour have not been announced yet. They will be posted on Yusef's website and on Instagram at a later date.
