Kanye West Built His Childhood Home For ‘Donda’ Event

Kanye West‘s third and latest listening experience for his upcoming album Donda will be this Thursday in his hometown, Chicago, so for the hometown fans, he’s creating a replica of the house he lived in as a child for the stage.

The event, taking place at Soldier Field, will feature a version of house he grew up in on the Windy City’s South Shore, according to ABC Chicago affiliate, WLS-TV. On Tuesday, the station provided a live aerial view of the house inside the stadium.

Last week, Yeezy posted a photo on Instagram that appears to be a shot of his old home.

Kanye’s two previous listening events were held at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, on July 23 and August 5. Tickets for the Chicago event are available at Ticketmaster.com.

Named after his late mother, Donda West, Donda will be the 22-time Grammy winners’ 11th studio album, and his latest following 2019’s Jesus Is King.

Donda was originally scheduled to drop in July, then its release was moved back to August 6 before being delayed again. A new date has not been announced. The new release features Jay-Z, The Weeknd, The LOX, Jay Electronica, the late Pop Smoke and more, according to Pitchfork.
