Kanye West to perform at Call of Duty XP

Hip-hop star to headline the upcoming fan event

Activision has signed up Kanye West to perform at Call of Duty XP.


In what the publisher says is the hip-hop star's first public performance since the release of his fifth number one album, Watch the Throne, Kanye West is to take the stage at 8pm on September 3 to close the fan event.

"We're pulling out all the stops," says Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg. "We promised our attendees and fans around the world a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the first Call of Duty XP, so we're thrilled to have Kanye on board.

"Everything about XP will be as epic as the games themselves. Whether you're competing for one of the open slots in the $1 million tournament, playing Modern Warfare 3 for the first time, dodging paintballs in a spectacular life-size recreation of Modern Warfare 2's Scrapyard level or just mingling with developers and fellow gamers, Call of Duty XP is a celebration of one of the greatest games in the world."
