Kanye West to Open 21 ‘Pablo’ Pop Up Shops Around the World on Friday
Kanye West has revealed plans to open up 21 pop up shops around the world this Friday, based on his latest album Life of Pablo.
Of course, pop up shops are nothing new—Rihanna opened one in Paris last month, Drake opened one in April in support of Views and Future opened one in New York back in late June. 'Ye himself caused a frenzy when he opened one for Pablo in New York back in March, causing fans to swarm the location.
“I think he’s going to have a lasting impression just because he does things like this,” shared one girl who was waiting in line at his shop back in March. “He’s so passionate about it. He goes so hard and his fans are going to go hard for it, too.”
This go around, however, Yeezy had to add the global twist, and go even bigger. Among the cities that will see one of the rapper's shops will be Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Detroit, Las Vegas, Chicago, Atlanta, Singapore, Cape Town, Amsterdam and Melbourne.
Exact locations for the stores will be announced 24 hour before they open to the public, and can be found on his website. Meanwhile, Kanye is set to head off on his Saint Pablo tour on August 25, with a date in Indianapolis. The tour will conclude on Nov. 1 in Los Angeles.
