Kanye West to Bring Yeezus Tour to Penn State

When B945 host PJ Mullen said a HUGE concert announcement was coming today, he was right. As announced this morning, legendary hip hop artist Kanye West will restart the Yeezus tour on February 13 at the Bryce Jordan Center.

The stop is part of a two-week stint in the Northeast as a continuation of his $25 million 2013 tour — his first in five years. Kanye comes only two weeks after another hip hop legend, Jay-Z, makes a stop at the BJC.

West is one of the most-awarded artists of all-time, totaling 21 Grammy Awards in his career. His debut album, The College Dropout, was released in 2004 and peaked at #2 on the U.S. charts. That album, along with his six subsequent albums, have sold more than 15 million copies worldwide.

Tickets go on sale this Friday at the normal places: Bryce Jordan Center, Eisenhower Auditorium, Penn State Downtown Theatre, online at Ticketmaster.com, LiveNation.com, or calling 800-745-3000. Prices are $45, $65 for reserved seating and $95 for GA floor access.  Students get a bit of a discount — $20 off floor access and $10 off reserved seating — but student tickets can only be purchased in person, two per person.

There are too many hits to list for the self-proclaimed “No. 1 rockstar on the planet” — six of his seven studio albums reached #1 on the U.S. charts — but I’ll leave you with these.
