( 4UMF NEWS ) Kanye West’s MSG Listening Party Sells Out In 10 Minutes:
Yeezus’ disciples have spoken.
Tickets to Kanye West’s highly anticipated album listening party at Madison Square Garden sold out in just 10 minutes on Thursday, the rapper announced on Twitter.
“THANK YOU SO MUCH GUYS WE SOLD MADISON SQUARE GARDEN OUT IN 10 MINUTES!!!” he proclaimed in a tweet.
The “All Day” artist hinted that seats would finally be made available earlier in the day when he tweeted it was “always a dream” to debut an album at the World’s Most Famous Arena.
“On February 11th these dreams come true,” he posted shortly after.
Sources tell the Daily News that West won’t be performing at the show. But he will roll out his latest clothing line, Yeezy Season 3, at the event — which will feature an appearance from prominent Italian contemporary artist Vanessa Beecroft as well. The show will also be streamed in 700 theaters in 23 different countries.
Tickets for the Feb. 11 blowout were originally expected to go on sale late last month, and a listing for the show promised as much on both Ticketmaster and the Garden website.
But the 38-year-old rapper has regularly changed his mind on decisions regarding the new album, as he recently changed its name from to “Swish” to “Waves.”
He backtracked on that new moniker once again Thursday, telling Los Angeles radio host Big Boy “we don’t have a name yet.”
He did, however, divulge some new information about the content of the new songs.
“I’m trying to open up hearts, minds,” he said on the 92.3 radio show. “This is a gospel album with a whole lotta cursing on it, but it’s still a gospel album.
He added: “It’s the gospel according to Ye.”
West, who claims the new album will be one of the best in history, has already released several singles from of it, including his first-ever collaboration with Kendrick Lamar, “No More Parties in L.A.”
