This morning, news broke that Kanye West is playing the Joe Louis Arena on Sept. 28. Initially, the wrong date was supplied, so please note that the show is on Wednesday, Sept. 28. West's playing here as part of the 'Saint Pablo' tour, which is the entertainer's first nationwide trek in three years.

But wait, there are two dates. West is also playing at the Palace of Auburn Hills a week later — on Thursday, Oct. 6.
