Kanye West playing Pan Am Games closing ceremonies

Stop griping about the Pan Am Games because rapper Kanye West is gracing Toronto with his presence at the event's Closing Ceremonies on July 26.

Rumours started flying Wednesday morning after Toronto men's basketball team player Anthony Bennett tweeted news of Yeezys's pending arrival. Soon, outlets such as the National Post and Noisey propelled this quasi-news forward. An official announcement at 10:30 ET from the Pan American Games host committee confirmed the stacked lineup for the closing festivities.

Tickets are still on sale and range from $90-$200.

Update (11:00am): Pitbull and Serena Ryder will also be performing.

What do you think about the line-up for the Pan Am Games Closing Ceremonies? Will you finally buy tickets for an event?
