Kanye West beaming his new album to movie theaters
Kanye West is headed to movie theaters.
The rapper is debuting his new album — its title has yet to be finalized, but is fluctuating between “Swish,” “Waves” and “So Help Me God” — at Madison Square Garden on Feb. 11, and is beaming the listening party to movie theaters across the world, including a handful of Metro Detroit theaters.
The AMC Forum 30 in Sterling Heights, Livonia’s AMC Livonia 20, Dearborn’s AMC Star Fairlane 21 and the United Artists Commerce Township 14 are among 13 Michigan theaters that will carry the simulcast, which is set to begin at 4:15 p.m. Theaters in Ypsilanti, Flint, Grand Rapids, Lansing, Battle Creek, Muskegon, Kalamazoo, and Benton Harbor will also show the presentation, as will Michael Moore’s State Theatre in Traverse City.
Tickets for the showings, $25, are on sale now through West’s website. Various ticket packages include an album download ($35), an album download and a T-shirt ($75), an album download and a hoodie ($128), an album download and a jean jacket ($530) and a pack that includes an album download, T-shirt, hoodie and a jean jacket ($581).
West’s album is debuting alongside his latest fashion line for Adidas, dubbed Yeezy Season 3.
Vanessa Beecroft, whom West worked with on his “Runaway” video, is choreographing the performance.
