Update: Due to demand, Kanye West is adding a second Miami concert to his upcoming Saint Pablo tour. In addition to the September 16 show, West will also be performing the following night, on September 17, at the American Airlines Arena. GA tickets go on sale this Saturday, June 18.
A week after Kanye West nearly caused a riot in New York City's East Village with rumors of a surprise show, the rapper has finally announced his much-anticipated Saint Pablo Tour.
Spanning three months and touching down in 32 cities, the Saint Pablo Tour is sure to be among the hottest concert tickets of 2016.
Kanye West will come to Miami's American Airlines Arena on Friday, September 16, two days after he visits Tampa's Amalie Arena. Those two dates will be his only Florida stops on the tour.
This tour comes in the wake of West's latest album, The Life of Pablo, which, despite suffering from an incredibly sloppy and poorly managed release via Tidal, was received jubilantly by both fans and critics. Since the album's release, West has remained one of pop culture's most discussed figures, stirring controversy with Tweet after Tweet, and confusing Ellen DeGeneres along the way.
Tickets for the show go on sale this Saturday, June 18. American Express members will be able to purchase tickets earlier, starting Tuesday, June 14, at 10 a.m. through Friday, June 17, at 10 p.m. Tidal subscribers will have a head start as well, and will be able to purchase tickets starting Thursday, June 16, at 10 a.m.
West announced the tour via Tidal — as he tends to do with most important things these days — and followed up with a single Tweet, which only said "TOUR" with a link to kanyewest.com. The last time Kanye West played in Miami was November 29, 2013, for the Yeezus Tour, but his star has only grown hotter since then, and more eyes will be upon the rapper this time around than ever before.
