Quick Takes

'Fame Kills' tour dates unveiled

September 19, 2009|Todd Martens

Apologies have been accepted and talk shows received their ratings boosts. Now everyone appears ready to go back to making money.

Concert promoter Live Nation officially unveiled the tour dates Friday for Kanye West's co-headlining trek with Lady Gaga, which will include two Los Angeles-area appearances. Dubbed the "Fame Kills" tour, the trek will hit the Honda Center in Anaheim on Nov. 15 and Staples Center downtown on Nov. 16.

The tour dates were unveiled on the website for industry trade Pollstar earlier this week, but in the wake of West's controversial appearance with Taylor Swift on the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday -- after which he told Jay Leno he was going to take some time off and "analyze how I'm going to make it through the rest of this life" -- reps for both artists and tour promoter Live Nation refused to confirm the tour's existence.

But all mysteries were put to rest Friday morning. Tickets go on sale Tuesday.
