Kanye West is just days away from kicking off his highly anticipated “Yeezus” tour.

This week, the rapper announced that he would be bringing A Tribe Called Quest on tour with him for select dates. When the tour was initially announced, he had only booked Kendrick Lamar and Pusha T – Philadelphia was one stop on the tour that was announced without “TBA” supporting act.

As confirmed by Kanye West’s website, Kendrick Lamar has been selected as the opener for the “Yeezus” tour stop at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on Saturday, November 16. Tickets can still be found here.
