Kanye West Announces 2014 European Dates For 'Yeezus' Tour

Kanye West will be a busy man in the coming months as the rapper has just announced that he will be embarking on a European leg of his highly-anticipated 'Yeezus' tour in 2014, marking his first solo jaunt in five years.

The 'Blood on the Leaves' hitmaker will kick off the jaunt on October 19 at the WA KeyArena in Seattle before moving onto a variety of cities including Los Angeles, his hometown of Chicago, Miami, New York and several dates in Canada and will be supporting by rising star Kendrick Lamar across the US leg.

Fortunately, Kanye's fans in the UK and Europe won't be missing out as the rapper looks set to head over next year after a brief break over the Christmas period. The support act for the second leg are yet to be announced as are the locations and dates and will be the first time Kanye has headed out on the road alone since 2011's Watch The Throne stint with Jay Z.

The tour will support Kanye's latest album 'Yeezus' which managed to soar to number one on the US Billboard charts with very little promotion, due in part to the birth of his first child, daughter North on June 15.

It was recently reported that Kanye's girlfriend Kim Kardashian and North will be joining him on the tour, however, her mother Kris Jenner is reportedly not so keen on the idea as she wonders how she will cope travelling the world with a small child.

“Kris is worried Kim will struggle being on the road with a baby. Motherhood is still so new to Kim and she's barely left the house for months. Going on tour will be a huge adjustment. Kris has reminded Kim that she knows best,” a source told Star magazine.

“Khloé thinks the whole thing is a crazy idea. She agrees with their mom that a rap tour is no place for a baby and that Kim should be at home surrounded by friends and family during Nori's first few months.”
