Earlier this month, it was reported that Kanye West was planning a massive performance in Italy. Reports at the time suggested that the show would take place at the RCF Arena in Reggio Emilia, however, this hasn’t been confirmed. Now, new reports claim that the show has been scheduled for October 27, with tickets going on sale as soon as today (October 15). Moreover, the show is now set to include Ty Dolla $ign, who Ye’s been working alongside on an upcoming collaborative album.
According to Billboard, a venue for the performance has not yet been revealed. After previewing a version of “New Body” featuring West and Nicki Minaj, Ty Dolla $ign unveiled the track last week. His joint project with the Chicago MC was originally scheduled to drop on October 13, but it was pushed back. Now, they’re reportedly shopping the album around with different distributers. It’s expected to come out in the next few weeks, though an official release date has yet to be announced.
