As one Reddit user discovered, Cineworld in the UK and Cinemaxx in Germany are currently selling tickets for “the world premiere of Kanye West’s SWISH album in its entirety, live from Madison Square Garden.” MSG and Ticketmaster are also advertising tickets for the event, using a similar Yeezy Season 3 poster that appeared in one of Kanye’s recent tweets.
