Kanye West Is Not Touring Australia In 2016

Earlier this year we were led to believe that Kanye West might just be bringing his Saint Pablo tour to Australia before the end of 2016. The result of a tweet from wife Kim Kardashian, and a big space in his US tour dates, instilled a sense of hope within us.

Unfortunately, we can now confirm that this is not to be. West has now extended his USA tour, seeing him perform right through to the end of the year, culminating in another New York City performance on December 31. Those in attendance are admittedly going to be pretty damn lucky to bring in the new year with Ye, who will no doubt be looking back on one of his biggest year’s yet.

West released The Life of Pablo in early 2016, and it feels like there hasn’t been a single day go past since where he hasn’t made headlines for something or another, be it a controversial video, beefs with pop stars and rappers, slightly less controversial videos, and generally just getting up to the Kanye West antics that many of us know and love.

We were lucky enough to catch Kanye West live at Madison Square Garden in New York just last month – check out our review here.

For our American readers, the full Saint Pablo tour dates can be found here – tickets go on sale October 22. For the rest of us, just keep crossing those fingers and toes.

In other news, West’s latest single Father Stretch My Hands Part 1 has just earned him his 12th no. 1 single on the Urban charts, an amazing accolade for any artist.
