Kanye West and Joel Osteen are reportedly discussing the future of his Sunday Service tour. Reports from Page Six claim they may be taking it on the road. Following their combined performance in Houston Texas last month, the duo announced their intention to take the show to New York’s Yankee Stadium in May.
Additionally, TMZ claims Kanye and Joel want to move on to other cities, including in Kanye’s hometown of Chicago at the Guaranteed Rate Field. At their show in Houston, Texas, the televangelist delivered his sermon at the Lakewood Church. Kanye’s gospel choir handled the music.
Tickets to the event sold for $500. As most know, earlier this year, Kanye West announced he was only going to make gospel music, with his latest record, Jesus Is King, released in October. The album broke a number of records.
Following the rapper’s new album, Kanye has been speaking with Osteen on a regular basis and had previously taken his Sunday Service to Queens in September. Fans had been anticipating Kanye’s next move for months.
Reported by Todd Malm on the 25th of October, Kanye first took to his Twitter account to confirm he was about to drop Jesus is King. However, fans online have gotten used to his unpredictable behavior and claims.
The rapper ended up being serious and his faith-based LP was dropped on the 25th of October, Friday. Additionally, Kim Kardashian, the rapper’s wife, also hyped up the record before its release.
The rapper also delivered an IMAX movie to go along with his faith-based record. As it was noted above, many hip-hop and Kanye fans thought just maybe he was joking about taking his music in a religious direction.
It didn’t help that Kanye had just gotten off several serious controversies in the entertainment industry, including his support for the president of the United States, Donald Trump. Kanye appeared on a number of different talk shows to express his support for the president, and also stopped by NBC’s SNL wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.
