Kanye West Is Coming Back To Penn State With Saint Pablo Tour

Yeezus will walk among us again. The Bryce Jordan Center announced this morning that Kanye West is making his anticipated return to State College on Friday, September 30 at 8 p.m. (doors at 7 p.m.) as part of his Saint Pablo Tour. Feel special, Penn State — State College is the only non-major city on the tour. Kanye was last at Penn State in February 2014 with an extended set list that we can only hope he repeats in his next stop in Happy Valley.

West will perform songs from his new album, “The Life of Pablo” live for the first time starting on August 25. The Saint Pablo Tour will be Kanye’s first North American tour in three years. Since his stop at Penn State is one of the first on his schedule, attendees will be some of the first to hear Kanye perform songs such as “No More Parties in LA” and “Ultralight Beam” live onstage.

Tickets will go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. at the Bryce Jordan Center, online at  or, or by phone at 800-745-3000. Students are able to take advantage of a student pre-sale which will be Friday, June 17 beginning at 10 a.m.; prices vary, but University Park students with a valid Penn State ID will be able to get $30 off the $59 and $79 tickets courtesy of UPAC.

Below is a video of Yeezus performing at Penn State in 2014. If this upcoming show is anything like the 2014 tour, it will certainly be a night to remember.
