Kanye West to premiere 'Swish' at Madison Square Garden
West was set to premiere his new album, 'Waves,' formally known as 'SWISH.'
UPDATE: The Ticketmaster page promoting Kanye West’s Madison Square Garden event, in which he was expected to premiere his forthcoming album, has been pulled down. Reports say the pre-sale is delayed but the event will still happen, though West did change the name of the collection from SWISH to Waves on Tuesday.
Madison Square Garden did not return EW’s immediate request for comment.
EARLIER: Over the past few weeks, Kanye West has revealed more and more details about his next album SWISH, including its tracklist and release date. But now it appears West won’t release his album in a traditional way. Instead he’ll premiere the collection with a live-event performance at New York’s famed venue Madison Square Garden, and the show will reportedly be streamed in theaters around the world. Intrepid Redditors first found listings in German theaters on Tuesday.
Tickets then became available for “Yeezy Season 3 — SWISH” on Ticketmaster, with the presale starting on Jan. 27 at 10 a.m. ET. Tickets go on sale to the public on Jan. 29 at 10 a.m. ET.
The show will reportedly feature a performance from visual artist Vanessa Barcroft, who choreographed West’s recent fashion shows.
