Thanks to the folks that edit the fine print at CharityBuzz a new Kanye West Tour or a second run of the Yeezus tour may makes it way to the U.S. within the year.

According to a Charity Buzz auction for The Ellen Hermanson Foundation to meet Kanye and attend one of his future concerts, “Additional US tour dates will be announced”. The auction notes that this offer expires in June of 2015, which would suggest that Mr. West himself will be touring again, beyond his upcoming festival appearances, within the year. While further details at this time are not yet know, this little easter egg in the fine print can be promising for Kanye fans.
