Kanye West looked to the past as he plotted a tour for his Vultures album trilogy. According to Billboard, Ye rehired his former manager John Monopoly.

Monopoly returned to the managerial role more than a decade after parting ways with Ye. The move gave Kanye a manager for the first time since 2018.

Kanye reunited with Monopoly amid efforts to arrange a world tour. Live Nation and AEG reportedly will not be involved in Kanye’s tour despite the success of his Vultures album listening parties. Ye remained a toxic figure in the music industry due to his antisemitism and other offensive remarks, which led to multiple brands cutting ties with him.

Controversy did not stop Kanye’s loyal fans from supporting him. Ye and Ty Dolla $ign’s single “Carnival” made it to No. 1 on the latest Hot 100 chart. The track became Kanye’s first No. 1 song in more than 12 years.

Ye last reached the top of the Hot 100 with his Katy Perry collaboration “E.T.” in 2011. “Carnival” marked the fifth No. 1 song of his career. His other No. 1 hits were “Stronger,” “Gold Digger” and Twista’s “Slow Jamz.”

According to Billboard, the Chicago rap icon and California crooner are planning to perform the as-yet-untitled project for the very first time at an undisclosed location on October 27.

Previous reports suggested that the event could be held at RCF Arena (formerly known as Campovolo), an outdoor music venue in the northern city of Reggio Emilia that can hold up to 100,000 people.

It’s also possible that tickets may go on sale in the coming days, although this has yet to be confirmed. When (or even if) the album will be released on streaming services is also unclear.

If it gets the go-ahead, the concert will continue Ye’s trend of stadium-status album rollouts following his The Life of Pablo premiere at NYC’s Madison Square Garden in 2016 and Donda listening parties at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium and Chicago’s Soldier Field in 2021.

News of a Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign album first surfaced earlier this month when new music from the duo was debuted during a “private listening party” in Italy. The latter also played an unreleased song at a nightclub in Geneva, Switzerland.

It was later reported that the collaborative project was due to be released on October 13, but it is now expected to arrive in the coming weeks. Ye and Ty are said to be currently shopping for a company to partner with to distribute the album.
