Kanye West fans are getting psyched for an imminent tour announcement.

Two US radio stations have posted - and swiftly deleted - tweets about summer live shows from the rapper in support of his latest album, The Life of Pablo.

JAM'N 107.5 in Portland claimed West would be playing the city's MODA Center on 8 July, while DJ Ryan Cameron from Atlanta station V103 prematurely announced a competition to win tickets to a 5 August show in the city.

The DJ's now-deleted tweet, which was spotted by Pitchfork, read: "The Saint Pablo tour is coming August 5, to PHILLIPS arena so guess who has them now? This guy! @kanyewest tix before 8!"

The rapper released his seventh studio album, The Life of Pablo, in February exclusively on streaming service Tidal. He has since insisted he is still working on it and has made alterations to several of its tracks.

Yeezy played a series of festival shows in 2015, but his last full-scale headline tour - in support of the Yeezus album - took place in 2013-14.
