Kanye West In Spite of Taylor Swift MTV VMA Debacle Announces Tour with Lady GaGa
(UPDATE) Lady Gaga Tickets and “The Monster Ball” Tour Announced. Lady Gaga did not pick up Kanye’s dates as was speculated, but her tour does kick off about the same time. More here.
UPDATE) Kanye West and Lady Gaga’s North American tour canceled.
The “Fame Kills” tour has been killed.
We chronicled Kanye West’s antics on the MTV VMAs last week (Taylor Swift vs Beyonce and Kanye’s to Blame). Kanye attempted to make amends on the new Jay Leno Show, but the self-proclaimed “voice of this generation” is facing a continued public backlash. On Twitter, people are interrupting each other and call it being #Kanyed. It’s in fun, but the ongoing negative publicity can’t make for a good time to launch a tour.
But that’s just what Kanye did. The now cancelled Fame Kills Starring Kanye West and Lady Gaga was slated to kick off in Phoenix on November 10. Tickets are on sale now. Here is the list of concert dates and locations.
