Kanye West to Play ‘808s & Heartbreak’ in Full at Upcoming L.A. Concert
While today (Aug. 30) marks the 10th anniversary of Kanye West’s Late Registration, the rapper will soon reflect on one of his more critically divisive efforts, 2008’s 808s & Heartbreak. West will play the pioneering album in its entirety during an upcoming concert in L.A.
As Consequence of Sound reports, a listing for West’s 808s concert has already been posted on Ticketmaster. The show will take place on Sept. 25 at the Hollywood Bowl, with a presale launching on Aug. 31 followed by a general sale on Sept. 4.
The album was a major departure from West’s previous three LPs, placing an emphasis on Auto-Tune, synths and a drum machine. It spurred the chart-topping hit, “Heartless” (listen below), plus singles “Love Lockdown,” “Amazing” and “Paranoid.”
West has yet to announce a release date and further details for his upcoming full-length, SWISH. Last month, however, the Yeezus artist debuted the Steve McQueen-directed music video for his new songs, “All Day” and “I Feel Like That,” at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
