Kanye West is rumoured to be hosting another ‘DONDA’ listening event this month, with speculation mounting that this latest event will take place in Chicago.
The rapper and producer has already held two listening events at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta for his forthcoming album, which has still yet to be released.
West is now rumoured to be planning another ‘DONDA’ event, with one fan, who claims to work in security at Soldier Field stadium in Chicago, writing on Twitter about a “major concert event” that is reportedly set to take place at the stadium on August 26.
“I work for security at Soldier Field, and we recently had an event added under ‘major concert event,’ and I’m very confident that it’s for Kanye’s listening party,” the fan tweeted. “If it’s true, then Kanye will be performing in Chicago at Soldier Field on the 26th.”

Neither West or his team have confirmed or commented on the rumours about a ‘DONDA’ event in Chicago. NME has reached out to West’s representatives for further comment.
Earlier this month West’s collaborator KayCyy sparked rumours about a new ‘DONDA’ venue after tweeting “we moving to another stadium”, before then subsequently claiming that his Twitter account had been hacked.
“You hackers gotta stop,” KayCyy wrote. “4 of my tweets were hacks … I will not be on Twitter anymore for the rest of the week.
West’s second Atlanta listening event earlier this month was Apple Music’s biggest ever livestream, with the broadcast attracting over 5.4 million viewers on the streaming service.
