It Looks Like Kanye West Has A 2015 Tour Planned
Update (Dec. 2, 8:37 p.m.): Roc Nation tweets about a Kanye West Tour in 2015.
Original Story: As time wears on, Kanye West evidently has less and less patience for the conventional promotional cycle. He carried the philosophy to a near-extreme last year, when he rolled out Yeezus, his sixth solo album, with only guerrilla-style projections of the crude "New Slaves" video. So fans are left to study Mr. West's furtive movements, hoping to piece together the clues. This time, it looks like Rihanna may have helped—perhaps inadvertently.
As part of an fundraising campaign for her Clara Lionel Foundation, Rihanna has listed a series of items for bid on auction site Gavel & Grand. Among them is what appears to be a VIP experience on an as-of-yet unannounced Kanye West tour for next year. The exact description reads: "Be Kanye West’s special front row VIP guest for his upcoming North American 2015 tour. Experience a rare opportunity meet & greet with the icon."
Neither West nor Rihanna—who has a similar item up for bid—has commented, but the supposed live dates could hint at a new album in the near future.
The lot, open until Dec. 11, is officially called the Kanye West Tour Experience, and calls for an opening bid of $15,000. The estimated value? "Priceless."
