With Waves finally on it’s way, Kanye West is prepping for a worldwide streaming event to debut the long-awaited LP. Like he did last year, West is fusing his fashion week festivities with the music.As previously reported, Waves will premiere in its entirety at Madison Square Garden next Thursday (Feb. 11). The even will stream in 20 countries around the globe.

Italy, France, Romania, Russia and Australia, are among the countries listed. More cinemas may be added closer to the Yeezy Season 3 extravaganza. The event will feature a performance by Italian artist, Vanessa Beecroft.

A message on West’s site notes that the event is produced via satellite. “While we work to provide guests with a seamless experience, local weather conditions could possibly affect the transmission of content to each cinema.”

Tickets are on sale now, and they’re non-refundable.
