We’re Giving Away Tickets to See Kanye’s Yeezus Tour
This month Kanye West is kicking off his first solo tour in five years, starting in Seattle on October 19 with 29 shows stretching across North America. Considering Yeezus is on our shortlist for album of the century and Mr. West is one of the most unpredictable figures in popular music today, there is no question on our mind that this is a tour for the history books. Not to mention, he’s bringing Kendrick Lamar along for the opening slot. The only downside is that tickets to see Yeezy and K-Dot do their thing at any one of the stops along this tour can costs as much $200—that’s a little rich for our blood, considering we’re still paying off our credit card from copping the Air Yeezy IIs.
To help folks like us, who don’t wipe their butts with twenty dollar bills, see the Louis Vuitton Don in IRL, we’re giving away two pairs of tickets that can be used for any ofthese selected dates on the Yeezus tour. To win a pair of tickets, send us a twitpic via Twitter to @VICE and make sure to include the hashtag #SENDITUP. Since anything goes when you’re dealing Kanye West, the picture you send us could be of anything—it could be one of your granny holding on to her 808 drum machine, your cat eating a damn croissant, or a picture of you snorting milk through a straw. There are no rules—just make us laugh, gross us out, or praise Yeezus. The contest starts now and we’ll be accepting pictures until midnight on Sunday, October 13. On Monday, October 14, we’ll announce the winners right here on VICE.com. Who knows, if we dig the pic, you might get a chance to finally see Yeezus ascend back to wherever the fuck he came from like the tour poster suggests.
VICE on HBO – Episode 3
Our Emmy-nominated HBO show recently wrapped up its first season, and complaint numero uno that we got throughout its run was: “I reaaaalllyyy want to watch your show, but I don’t have HBO.” Well, your cries have been heard. Earlier this week we released the first episode on VICE.com, and episode four went live yesterday. Today we’re giving you the third episode. Why did we post episode four before episode three, you ask? Don’t worry about it. Online media strategies can be very complicated and boring. Just enjoy the show! Next Tuesday and Wednesday we’ll release episodes nine and ten, respectively.
In episode three of VICE, Thomas Morton meets a gun-crazy pastor who teaches his young students gun drills and tactics to disarm attackers, and Shane Smith travels to Fallujah, Iraq, where a rise in birth defects has been linked to the American military’s suspected use of depleted-uranium munitions during the war.
