There's no figure more polarizing in music right now than Kanye West. Love or hate him, everyone has an opinion on Yeezus. While he hasn't come out and straight-up said it, it's apparent that Kanye has positive vibrations for South Florida.
Mr. Kim Kardashian just revealed his Saint Pablo Tour will be coming to BB&T Center on Sunday, December 4. The announcement comes just a month after two sold-out September dates at the American Airlines Arena, a concert experience Miami New Times described as "mesmerizing and ferociously engaging. It demands attention from the audience as few arena concerts ever do."
Those Miami Saint Pablo Tour shows had Kanye onstage for hours playing a 30-plus song retrospective of his hop-hop-record-shattering career. Touching on hits like "Jesus Walks" and "Heartless," he performed on a floating stage where beneath him was "a mosh pit rarely seen at a mainstream hip-hop concert of this magnitude."
Of course, many people are attracted to Saint Pablo not because of his music but because of the spectacle that surrounds him. On this tour Kanye does not disappoint, laying out one of his trademark 11-minute rants breezing over race, guns, and Hillary Clinton.
If this sounds captivating to you, you'll be happy to know tickets for the BB&T Center show go on sale Saturday, October 22, at 10 a.m. with prices ranging from $25 to $125 via ticketmaster.com. American Express card members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning today, October 19, at 10 a.m. until Friday, October 21, at 10 p.m.
