People in Canada must really hate Kanye…
Kanye West will be in Toronto to close the Pan Am Games, organizers confirm.
West has been rumored to be set for the Pan Am closing event since basketball player Anthony Bennett tweeted the news on Wednesday. (YES THAT ANTHONY BENNETT IS BREAKING NEWS!!)
West played the Ottawa Bluesfest earlier in July, despite a petition to get him off the bill for the festival.
Pan Am officials would not reveal what West would be paid for the performance. Organizers said that fee is negotiated between Live Nation, the concert booking agency, and West. Pan Am organizers did say the Games will be making a “contribution” toward the fee, but did not disclose an amount.
