Kanye West has brought his Sunday Service performance to cities all across America, but he’s reportedly looking to expand even more. According to TMZ, ‘Ye is planning on bringing his choir-assisted tour to undisclosed countries in Europe and Africa.
A source close to Kanye told the outlet that he’s set his sights globally for 2020 and no longer has any interest in ‘traditional touring.’ TMZ also reports that he’s gearing up to begin recording another gospel album with his choir, which will follow Christmas Day’s Jesus Is Born.
This won’t be the first time Kanye and his Sunday Service choir have gone abroad, as he brought the spiritual performance to Jamaica last October. The news of potential Europe and Africa destinations further expands ‘Ye’s reach, though, especially paired with his rumored partnership with pastor Joel Osteen.
Last fall, Kanye and his choir performed for over 45,000 people at Osteen’s Houston megachurch. The rapper and pastor reportedly plan to reconnect at Osteen’s upcoming “America’s Night of Hope” event in May, which will take place at the Yankee Stadium. The venue’s capacity holds 54,000.
“There’s a lot of people in the Christian community that give Joel a hard time because when you turn on the radio, he keeps showing you how good God is,” ‘Ye previously said of the televangelist.
Besides Kanye’s Sunday Service, which has made surprise strops in Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, Dayton, Miami and more on a weekly basis, the rapper is also reportedly considering touring his act with Osteen. The traveling event would feature Osteen’s sermon and Ye’s joint choir performance.
Kanye previously announced that his Jesus Is King tour would hit the road “right away.”
“It’s coming,” he told TMZ, adding that his Jesus Is King Tour would be “something different” than his Saint Pablo Tour. It’s unclear whether the album tour will now take a backseat to future Sunday Service performances and Osteen collaborations.
