THE YEEZUS TOUR CONTINUES WITH FEBRUARY NORTHEAST RUN

 

“There was a mountain onstage, but Mr. West made it look small…at the middle of it all was a man not lost in the rhythms of an arena spectacle, but alive in the moment, his every breath a thunderstorm.” – The New York Times

 

“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

 

“Watching Kanye West perform…I felt roughly the same exhilaration as the sixteen-year-old I was standing next to…is there anyone like Kanye now? Has there ever been? No. ‘Yeezus’ felt like the album of the year months ago; now the year just feels like it belongs to West. Or, more accurately, the moment keeps being his.” – The New Yorker

 

“There are very few modern artists with the kind of vision, ambition, and means to execute it as Kanye West right now…a distinct statement of his combined artistic ambition, penchant for excess, and desire to simply outdo every other entertainer out right now.” – The Seattle Times
