It's official. Chicago's favorite hip-hop native son, Kanye West on Tuesday announced live dates for his much-anticipated, "Life of Pablo"-focused tour, which will be dubbed "Saint Pablo." West is scheduled to play two Chicago dates, Oct. 7 at United Center and Oct. 8 at Allstate Arena.

The tour will begin Aug. 25 in Indianapolis and span nearly 40 cities across US and Canada.

Tickets go on sale Saturday, June 18, at 10 a.m. But, you guessed, there are a couple of pre-sale tie-in opportunities: American Express cardholders can purchase tickets today, June 14, at 10 a.m. and (say it with me) Tidal subscribers can buy them starting Thursday, June 18.
