His album was named after his mother, Donda West, who died at the age of 58 following plastic surgery complications in 2007.

The sold-out event will be livestreamed on Apple Music.

The rapper-producer is mostly associated with Chicago, but he was born in Atlanta – a Georgia city where there are no restrictions against large gatherings.

The 22-time Grammy winner revealed during a commercial Tuesday that his highly-anticipated album will be released Friday.
