Kanye West revealed on his visit to The View today that he'll embark on a joint tour with Rolling Stone's new Hot Diva — Lady Gaga — later this year. Details are still sketchy, but West said, "She's talented and so incredible that she's not an opening act. We're doing it together, with no opening act." Perez Hilton says that Gaga and Yeezy will instead spend the entire show onstage performing together, but again, West provided no other major information regarding the nature of their trek together, including possible tour dates. One thing is certain: This show will definitely be one of the hottest tickets this year.
It's no surprise that Kanye is a fan of Lady Gaga, who fronted Rolling Stone's annual Hot Issue. West recently interpolated Gaga's "Poker Face" hit into the Kid Cudi track "I Make Her Say" or "I Poke Her Face" as the kids on the streets call it. Kanye has even gone as far as saying Gaga is this generation's Madonna. Kanye is also no stranger to recruiting the top talent on the charts to join him on tour, as his epic Glow In The Dark tour last year featured Rihanna, Chris Brown, N.E.R.D. and Lupe Fiasco. More details on the trek, which Rock Daily is already calling the "808s & Poker Face" tour, as they filter in.
