Kanye West will be coming to a city near you soon enough as the rapper has announced dates for his Saint Pablo Tour. Marking his first official tour in three years, the Waves rapper will perform his latest album The Life Of Pablo during a series of shows across North America towards the end of summer.

The 32-date jaunt will launch on 25 August 2016 with a show at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, before moving on to cities including Boston, Washington, Miami, Houston, Detroit, Philadelphia and the musician's hometown of Chicago. West, 39, will also perform two nights at New York City's Madison Square Garden and two shows in Los Angeles before wrapping up the tour in Las Vegas 29 October. Fans further north in Canada can also expect shows in Toronto, Montreal, Winnipeg, Edmonton and Vancouver.

Pre-sale tickets will be available from 10am on 16 June exclusively via Tidal but only to the music service's subscribers. Tickets will then go on general sale through Ticketmaster on 18 June.

Although he has performed a variety of live shows and festivals since, including headlining Glastonbury in 2015, West has not embarked on a tour since his Yeezus stint in 2013. Saint Pablo supports West's seventh studio album, The Life Of Pablo, which was released on 14 February initially as streaming-only on Tidal.

The album boasts writing, singing and production credits from the likes of Chris Brown, Frank Ocean, The Weeknd, Drake and Pharrell Williams to name just a few, while the popular songs Famous, Waves, Wolves, Real Friends and 30 Hours make an appearance. Details of the tour are mostly being kept quiet but West teased his Twitter followers in April by saying: "I'm so happy that you guys like the music... I'm working on the tour designs now."

It is believed the All Of The Lights rapper is already working on his eighth studio album, titled Turbo Grafx 16, and is also hard at work on the Cruel Winter record, an ensemble LP with his G.O.O.D. Music labelmates.
