Kanye West has announced he's extending his tour and bringing his mind-altering 'Yeezus' tour back across the East Coast next month. Among the handful of dates he's adding is a stop at the Baltimore Arena (formerly 1st Mariner Arena) on Feb. 14.
Nevermind that it's Valentine's Day. This is excellent news for those of us who foolishly passed up the November show at Verizon Center, which pop music critic Chris Richards described alternately as "Stanley Kubrick shooting a porno on Broadway," and "a pro athlete relishing the Jumbotron replay." Tickets are on sale now at $46.50-$126.50.
Hip-hop fans will also want to get tickets today for Earl Sweatshirt's first big solo outing. The wunderkind rapper, whose laconic flow and beyond-his-years powers of observation have made him one of the better-known quantities of the Odd Future collective, brings his Wearld Tour to the 9:30 Club on Feb. 17. Tickets, $25, are on sale through the club.
