Kanye West‘s two most divisive albums are 808s & Heartbreak and Yeezus. The former ranks in the lower half of West’s solo discography, but it’s wide-ranging influence has been noted. That’s part of why it’s a big deal that West is going to perform the album in full next month.
He’ll perform 808s & Heartbreak in a one-time concert at Los Angeles’s Hollywood Bowl on Sept. 25, according to Consequence of Sound. Tickets will go on sale for the public on Sept. 4 through Ticketmaster. Although why West is performing that album is unclear, 808s & Heartbreak is known to be the most emotionally bare in his oeuvre. The project came after the death of his mother Donda West and his breakup up with then-fiancée Alexis Phifer.
Quick, important side note: Today is also the 10-year anniversary of Late Registration. Maybe West will perform that in full someday.
