Kanye West Reveals Global Date

(mtv.co.uk ) - He's playing the dance music festival and talks about the futuristic Glow In The Dark Tour.

Kanye West will headline Global Gathering this July- his only UK festival appearance.

The event takes place July 25-26 and also features Mark Ronson and Moby.

Meanwhile the rapper has revealed collaborators for his forthcoming Glow In The Dark tour, including work from the creators of The Muppets!

In attempts to make it his most extravagant tour to date, Mr West has recruited 'Creature Shop', one of the branches of the Jim Henson Company, who've worked on movies from Labyrinth to Harry Potter.

Kanye is convinced the shows will amaze saying: "This is not a regular show. I tell people... this show is gonna be crazy and they say, 'I bet it is!', But They Have No Idea!"

The tour, which already features Lupe Fiasco, Rihanna and N*E*R*D, is set to star robots, holograms, a light show and the specially designed puppets.

He explained: "My set does not have a pyramid in it or anyway feel like a bite of Daft (Punk)'s show. We've got holograms shot by Hype Williams! An Entirely New Designed Set!... (and) creatures by the legendary Jim Henson's Creature Shop".

The Glow In The Dark Tour begins in Seattle on April 16.
