Kanye West Announces ‘Donda’ Listening Event in Chicago

After hosting two album listening events in Atlanta’s Mercedes-

Benz Arena, Kanye West has just announced that he will do

a third Donda listening session, but this time at Soldier Field in

his hometown of Chicago.

Kanye’s latest Donda event is set for Aug. 26. Tickets go on sale

Aug. 20 at 1 p.m. ET.

’Ye posted the flyer to his Instagram and remained silent with no

caption. His manager Abou “Bu” Thiam gave fans hope that this

event will also herald the official release of the record. Posting the

announcement on his own account, Bu took to the comments to

answer a fan asking “after this will he finally drop the album?”

Bu’s direct reply? “Absolutely!”

Each listening event for Donda has been just as starkly different

as the version of the album West played. During the first outing,

Kanye kept it extremely minimal, wordlessly walking around a

large white canvas as the full-length played, occasionally showing

his emotions through physical reactions to different tracks.


The second listening event in Atlanta morphed as significantly as

the album did. ’Ye engaged in more performance art by enlisting

hundreds of people to move together around him. He also added

several new artists, songs, and elements to Donda that weren’t

there before, evidence of the work he had been putting in while

taking residence in the Mercedes-Benz Arena.

For the third and hopefully final of the version album, there’s

no telling what spectacle might come. The only other thing West 

what looks like a window.


Staying true to the theme of this entire roll-out, Yeezy still hasn’t

said anything. The comments sections on his social media

postsare flooded with fans begging for Donda, and this third

listeningevent in his hometown might be the deliverance they’ve

beenwaiting for. Awaiting Donda.
