Kanye West has finally released the dates for his anticipated Saint Pablo tour, which is kicking off this fall. According to the dates, Yeezy will be heading to New York in early September, which happens to be just a couple days before New York Fashion Week starts.
West is scheduled to take over Madison Square Garden on September 5 and 6, while NYFW is set to begin on Septemeber 8. The timing has us questioning if West has something up his sleeve for his NYC tour dates, possibly the debut of Yeezy Season 4? Last season, West took over Madison Square Garden to unveil Yeezy Season 3 and debut his new album The Life of Pablo during Fashion Week.
For the past two seasons, West’s surprise Yeezy shows have disrupted the Fashion Week schedule, which could explain why these dates are ahead of the other presentations. His last-minute Yeezy Season 2 fashion show upset a couple of other designers who were slated to present their collections at the same time. One designer even filed a complaint with the CFDA.
‘Ye pulled a similar move for Yeezy Season 3 when he announced his show at MSG just weeks before he was set to present it. Several other designers were forced to rearrange their schedules, since it would have been practically impossible to compete with West’s high-profile event, which attracted everyone from Anna Wintour to 50 Cent.
West is known for keeping things under wraps ahead of his fashion shows, which means we may not find out his intentions until the fall. So far, West hasn’t revealed much about the upcoming collection, expect for a tweet, which he said Yeezy Season 4 would be only children’s clothing.
Tickets for the tour will go on sale Saturday. American Express cardholders can preorder starting today and Tidal users can preorder beginning June 16 at 10 a.m.
