Kanye West will play the new Revel casino and resort on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City on July 6 and 7.

Kanye West to play two nights at Revel in Atlantic City in July


Kanye West will play the Revel casino and resort on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City on July 6 and 7. They'll be the rapper, producer and Kim Kardashian-dater's first solo shows since he played Coachella in 2011 annd his first time ever playing Atlantic City as a solo act. (He did a Watch The Throne date with his buddy Jay-Z at Boardwalk Hall last November.)

After an initial flurry of shows with Maroon 5, Black Keys and Beyonce's four-night stand on Memorial Day weekend, Revel's concert lineup for the rest of the summer was starting to look underwhelming. With the booking of West, who just completed a European tour with Jay-Z, that impression is immediately altered. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster.com.

"Power" is below.
