Kanye West said in his blog that he could not wait to show his fans that his upcoming tour will not be like people expect it to be.
Kanye West has unleashed several photos which will be part of his upcoming Glow in the Dark Tour. Beside revealing the stage, Kanye also shows photos of his hologram girls who wear minimum clothes and are covered with special paint.
"I can't take it anymore. I have 2 show you guys a model of the stage," Kanye wrote on his official blog along with the posting of the first photo on April 3. "This is not a regular show. I tell people, hey, this show is gonna be crazy and they say, "I bet it is!", BUT THEY HAVE NO IDEA! People expect me to come with innovative stuff... I'm sure a lot of people expect some neon, lower east side, post everybody dressing like the 80's stuff or maybe the light up jacket from the Grammies, perhaps the robot girl and light spectacle they saw on Youtube from the European run. My friends..... NONE OF THE ABOVE!!!"
Kanye further revealed that the set is a new design and features robots by artist Christian Colon, creatures by Jim Henson and lighting by Martin Phillips and John McGuire who penned Daft Punk's famous pyramid show last year. There will also be holograms that are shot by renown director Hype Williams. West said that he had also worked with a team in the past month for the re-orchestra of his tracks.
The first date of the tour which is sponsored by Absolut 100 vodka will begin April 16 in Seattle, W.A.. Rihanna, N.E.R.D. and Lupe Fiasco have been confirmed as the supporting acts of this tour. For complete tour dates log on to KanyeUniverseCity.com.
