Kanye West to play four concerts during Paris Fashion Week

PARIS (AFP) - United States (US) rapper Kanye West has announced he will perform a series of concerts over four days from Saturday at the Fondation Louis Vuitton during Paris Fashion Week.

Proceeds from the gigs will go to an as-yet unspecified charity, the Fondation said on its website.

Kanye is attending Paris Fashion Week with his wife Kim Kardashian and has already been seen at the Balmain and Lanvin catwalk shows.

The shows are likely to feature music from his upcoming album So Help Me God.

The Fondation Louis Vuitton, a futuristic glass building in Paris which opened last year with a concert by the pianist Lang Lang, is sponsored by the LVMH luxury brand group but is run as a non-profit entity.

In November, it played host to concerts by the cult German techno artists Kraftwerk.
