Yeezus is coming to Austin, Texas, next month. 

Kanye West has been named headliner of the 2014 X Games, taking place June 5-8 at the Austin360 Amphitheater.

West will perform on Saturday, June 7 with special guest Mac Miller. The Chicago native is joined on the bill by more than a dozen other artists including rock bands the Flaming Lips and Bad Religion, EMD group Cash Cash, Mayer Hawthorne and soul singer Gary Clark Jr. 

The X Games is the latest live performance that the 36-year-old MC has locked in for the month of June, which also happens to be his and his daughter North West's birthday month.

One week after the X Games, West heads to Manchester Tenn. to lead the Bonnaroo Music Festival held June 12-15. The performance commemorates his first return to the annual festival in six years.

Before he jumps into those gigs, West is reportedly prepping for another huge event, a personal one. He and Kim Kardashian are rumored to be tying the knot on paper this week, followed by a wedding ceremony in Paris next month. The reality star was spotted in the City of Lights yesterday having lunch with Serena Williams.

Kardashian and West haven't publicly confirmed the nuptials. The couple started dating in 2012.
