On Thursday, August 5th at 9 p.m. EST at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Kanye West will be having his second listening event for his new album Donda. Tickets will be sold through Ticketmaster on Aug. 2nd at 10a.m. EST, and stated via TMZ that tickets will run $30-$75.
Kanye West has pushed back the released date of his new album to Aug. 6 due to hosting this listening event. This will be the second listening event for Donda, as the first had been held on July 22 and was streamed through Apple Music, breaking the Global Music record. West has social media posts of working from makeshift living quarters in the stadium since then.
During the first listening session, artists like Jay-Z, Lil Baby, Travis Scott, Pusha T and more were heard, even though the tracklist has yet to be released. It was said via The Hollywood Reporter that the inspiration for this title was from West’s mother Donda West who passed in 2017 at the age of 58, and follows the theme of West’s 2019 album Jesus Is King.
