On Tuesday, Ye shared a video on Instagram, where he claimed that his upcoming listening party show at United Center in Chicago sold out in seven minutes – but revealed that it was the only venue that would have him.

"It's the only arena that I had access to in the past year," West explained in the clip.

"And when I call, people say there's no avails for me, and you know why that is."

Kanye West's controversies catch up to him amid music comeback

West has been attempting to repair his career after he nearly destroyed it by publicly making a string of antisemitic remarks. His behavior cost him several high-profile business deals, friendships, and his status as a billionaire.

He has since doubled down on his comments multiple times, but in a bizarre move, he issued an apology to the Jewish community back in December.

The listening party is to celebrate the release of his new record, Vultures, which will mark his return to music.

His show at United Center will take place on Thursday, while the album is expected to drop on Friday.
