Is Kanye West Ready To Resurrect Cancelled ‘Saint Pablo’ Tour?

According to reports, Kanye West is ready to resurrect his cancelled 'Saint Pablo' tour — suggesting that the rapper will fulfill his touring obligations in the UK and Europe later this year.
Back in November 2016 after a string of unusually erratic speeches during his shows, West was hospitalized with exhaustion, for his own "health and safety". He cancelled a number of tour dates around the USA and Europe, and caused much speculation if he'd get back on the road, or if he'd simply collect the insurance payout as a result of a Doctor's note.
However, it now appears that West may be ready to resurrect the tour in the coming months. Reports have surfaced suggesting that the rapper is preparing for a return to the stage, after E! Entertainment — who produce West's wife Kim Kardashian's reality show — cited an anonymous source close to West who claimed that the 'Saint Pablo' tour will resume in due course.
The unnamed source claimed; "Kanye has a few surprise projects coming up that involves music and concerts in the spring and summer. Plus he is working on his fashion line and some collaborations," the source said. "Kanye wants to finish the tour. He loves his show, and he wants everyone in the world to see it."
However, there has been no official comment made from West's camp at this time. Just last week it was announced that West, a rare vocal supporter of Donald Trump's presidency, had not been invited to play at the inauguration because he was not "Traditionally American enough."
