Kanye West to Reunite With Joel Osteen at Yankee Stadium: Report
Kanye West and Joel Osteen are reportedly reuniting for a major show in 2020.
According to a report TMZ published on Thursday (Dec. 5), the Chicago native and the famed televangelist based in Houston might be plotting to dominate Yankee Stadium in New York City for a sequel to their joint Sunday Service. The outlet reports that 'Ye and Osteen's first experience working together was such a success that they been working on putting on a show for an even bigger crowd.
The rapper, who dropped his Jesus Is King album in October, and the revered pastor plan to hit the stage at Yankee Stadium on May 2, 2020 as a part of Osteen's America's Night of Hope event. The event will feature Osteen's usual sermon and a special performance from 'Ye and his Sunday Service choir. Although Osteen has brought the event to the stadium in the past, it will be his first time with Kanye in the playbill.
Unlike Osteen's megachurch in Houston, the New York Yankees' home stadium can hold up to 54,251 people. Kanye and Joel expect their next collaborative effort to be a sold-out event, which sounds more like a tour stop than the average Sunday Service. In the past, tickets to Osteen's event have been as cheap as $15. However, that was before the G.O.O.D. Music founder was added to the program.
As of this report, there's no confirmation on the price of the reported event. XXL has reached out to Kanye West's camp for comment.
