The Donda listening event will take place at Soldier Field — home of the Chicago Bears — on August 26.

While Ye just confirmed the rumors, they were sparked by someone who claimed they work security at the venue.

"I work for security at Soldier Field, and we recently had an event added under ‘major concert event,’ and I’m very confident that it’s for Kanye’s listening party,” the person tweeted on Tuesday. “If it’s true, then Kanye will be performing in Chicago at Soldier Field on the 26th.”

Andrew Barber of Chicago-based hip-hop blog Fake Shore Drive added fuel to the fire when he also tweeted, "DONDA listening party in Chicago."

This does sync up with something that one of the rapper's associates tweeted (and deleted) last week.

"We moving to another stadium," one of Kanye's closest allies KayCyy wrote before quickly making it disappear.

Ye moved into the venue after being inspired by the crowd after his first listening on July 23.

Ditching his $14 million Wyoming Ranch to live in a room that looked like a jail cell, Kanye left the building and was spotted shopping in Los Angeles on Monday.

This made everyone wonder if Donda was finally complete after not one, but two moved release dates.

Donda is Kanye's tenth studio album and named after his late mother, who passed away unexpectedly in 2007.

While his soon-to-be ex-wife Kim Kardashian attended both listening parties in Atlanta, it's unclear if she'll make the trip to Chicago.
