Kanye West Concert in Italy ‘Very Unlikely’ to Happen, Sources Say

October 22, 2023

Kanye West‘s planned concert in Italy will likely not be taking place after all, sources tell Billboard Italy.

West, who now goes by Ye, had been planning to perform at RCF Arena (formerly known as Campovolo) in Reggio Emilia on Oct. 27. The show, which was being organized by Italian promoter Vivo Concerti, was never officially announced.

The event was originally being planned for Oct. 20, but had been delayed until Oct. 27. Signs that the concert was being canceled arrived earlier this week after the dismantling of a stage being built at the site, followed by Ye’s return to the U.S. from Italy, where he had been visiting in recent months with his wife, Bianca Censori.

West’s “secret” concert at RCF Arena in Reggio Emilia kept his fans (and haters) in suspense, as well as sparking controversy from local feminist and anti-fascist associations for his past antisemitic statements and expressing admiration for Adolf Hitler.
