What kind of debut do you give “the best album of all time?? If you’re Kanye West, you plan on introducing Swish to the world with a live performance at New York’s Madison Square Garden, with additional screenings in theaters worldwide.
The event is slated for February 11, which is when he teased his album’s release; it’s also the date that he revealed in a tweet as the launch date for his Adidas Originals presentation for Yeezy Season 3, which may or may not hint at the fact that he’s dropping the album during his New York Fashion Week presentation. In fact, the event officially listed on Ticketmaster is titled “Kanye West — Season 3 — Swish.”
This wouldn’t be the first time that Kanye graced us with new songs during Fashion Week; he did it during both Yeezy Season 1 and Yeezy Season 2 shows, both of which were live-streamed in theaters. However, debuting his album in full concert form at one of the biggest venues in the world would be an industry milestone.
Tickets will go on sale for the MSG event starting on January 29, with pre-sale starting tomorrow.
