While we await official word from the Pan American Games host committee this morning, rumours are afloat that the closing ceremonies will feature none other than Kanye West. The press conference will be held at 10 30am and will feature an official announcement on who the committee have found to act as their 'headline talent.'
The ceremony will be held later this month, on the 26th of July, at The Rogers Centre and will feature music as organized by Live Nation Entertainment. Live Nation is our city's leading concert provider and they are said to have booked some top Canadian and International musical acts for the event.
So will it be Yeezus? We will have more information for you following the official announcement later this morning.
UPDATE: And just like that, at 10 30am on the nose, the official twitter account of the 2015 Pan/Parapan American Games @TO2015 tweeted an image of the rapper along with the very minimalistic caption: Kanye West. Confirmed.

Confirmed could mean a lot of things but we're going to go ahead with the assumption that he is the confirmed performer for the closing ceremony. Do you think he sticks around for OVOFest the following weekend?
