LOS ANGELES, June 14 (UPI) -- Kanye West is gearing up for a new, North American tour.
The 39-year-old rapper will promote his album The Life of Pablo on the Saint Pablo tour in late summer/fall. West announced the news and 32 tour dates on his website Tuesday.
The "Famous" rapper will kick off the venture Aug. 25 in Indianapolis, Ind., and bring the tour to a close Oct. 29 in Las Vegas, Nev. General presale begins Saturday, June 18 on the Live Nation website.
"We're just working on some ideas right now," he said of the tour on The Steve Harvey Morning Show last month. "My tour game is strong ... I'm literally trying to inspire these kids the way [Lucasfilm] inspired me when I first saw the original Star Wars."
West released The Life of Pablo in February and followed up with an updated version in April. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and includes the singles "Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1" and "Pt. 2."
