muppets star wars Kanye West will be part of this year's Lollapalooza, the huge annual music conert & festival. Also included will be Radiohead, Rage against the Machine, Gnarls Barkley and alt-rock group Nine Inch Nails. The concert vent will be held August 1 through 3rd and is sponsored by companies such as Budweiser and AT&T this year.

According to Billboard.com:

Kanye is also adding some interesting guests to his upcoming "Glow in the Dark" concert tour. The guests aren't Jay-Z or more rappers, but instead Kanye's stage show will feature some puppets. West will be getting help from the company founded by Jim Henson of Muppets fame. The tour kicks off later in April, and West promises it will be his most extravagant yet, including holograms, light show, a robot and puppets on stage. West claims people have no idea just how crazy this show will be...Sounds like it will be futuristic and creative like many of Kanye's recent tracks and music videos from his album Graduation.

Lollapalooza always does well with its impressive lineup of almost non-stop music. Glow in the Dark sounds impressive with its stage effects. So now Kanye could be part of two of the biggest concerts of 2008, depending on how well his own does.
