Kanye goes West to Belfast

Kanye West is scheduled to play the Odyssey arena in December

Hip-hop superstar Kanye West is joining the list of world class performers who will delight audiences in Belfast before the end of the year.

Aiken Promotions this morning confirmed that West - whose new album, Graduation, is out on Monday - will appear at the Odyssey Arena on December 1.

Tickets for the show are expected to sell out quickly when they go on sale next Friday.

West is currently taking the singles chart by storm with his hit, Stronger, which reached the number one slot after its release.

He joins an impressive array of rockers already confirmed to play the Odyssey over the next few months.

Rod Stewart, Meatloaf and Madness will be heading to Belfast as part of Aiken Promotions' autumn/winter schedule.

Rod returns to the Odyssey on November 3 while Meatloaf is back in the city on November 22.

On December 7 it is the turn of legendary nutty boys, Madness, to rock the Odyssey.

The announcement comes just one day after tickets for Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, who are set to play the venue on December 15, sold out in a record eight minutes.

The first-class programme reinforces the view that Belfast is gaining a strong reputation among the world's top performing artists.

Tickets for Kanye West, priced £38 for seated and £33 for standing, go on sale from the usual outlets at 9am on September 14.
