Kanye West, among the first artists to play Ovation Hall at Revel in Atlantic City, NJ, is returning to that swagtastic playpen for a trio of shows running up to New Year's Eve, on December 28, 29 and 30. You'll notice, as Brooklyn Vegan did earlier this afternoon, that this isn't exactly a New Yeezy Eve extravaganza—no doubt West is keeping that night free to hang with Jay-Z at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

If you're feeling apprehensive about treating Atlantic City as your playground so soon after Sandy, don't: The city is hungry for tourist trade. Pre-sales for Kanye's run start on Tuesday, November 27 for Citi cardholders, and on Thursday, November 29 for those who tumble the secret password. We remaining hoi polloi will be hitting Ticketmaster on Friday, November 30 at 10am.
