On August 26, Kanye West may give a DJ set for his upcoming album “Donda.”
It will be the rapper’s third such concert in support of his album Donda West, which is named for his late mother. He has already hosted two events at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
In a sparse Instagram post, the listening party was announced. Tickets for the event, which will take place at Soldier Field on Aug. 26 at 9 p.m., will go on sale on Friday via Ticketmaster.
West was said to have been residing inside Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta while working on Donda, his tenth studio album, which
has yet to be published, prior to the first two listening events.
West debuted “Donda” in front of a sold-out stadium audience only two days after announcing the first public listening session for
his highly anticipated album. During the event, which drew out many major stars including Rick Ross, Khloe Kardashian, and his
estranged wife Kim Kardashian West, who came up in a red jumpsuit with their children, he hardly uttered a word when presenting
his new song.
West did not perform any of the songs from his album during his second listening party, instead of playing the music over the
stadium’s loudspeakers. Meanwhile, he’d set up a bed and blankets in the stadium’s middle, and as the crowd listened to the record,
he did pushups, danced, made phone calls, and even seemed to sleep, surrounded at times by a huge number of people standing in a
circle around him.
He seemed to levitate at the conclusion of the performance when he was lifted into the air by wires.
West’s latest project is a follow-up to his Grammy-winning gospel-themed album “Jesus is King,” which was released in 2019.
West announced the debut of his new album on Twitter last year, complete with bright cover art and tracklist. His tweets at the time
suggested that his album would be released on the same day as Taylor Swift’s “Folklore,” however his album was postponed.
