They brough the star power: It will be hard to top the initial event as his estranged wife Kim Kardashian showed up with their kids – North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm – as well as her sister Khloe Kardashian.
This new event will need another feel from the first where West stood on stage with a beige nylon sock over his head and a red outfit as the music played.
And it was claimed CAA and Live Nation are ‘pressuring’ the artist to make it spectacular.
The site claimed West’s team has secured August 5 at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta for the event.
The first listening party broke the Apple Music Global Livestream record with 3.3 million viewers.

The first listening party for the Donda album took place in Atlanta on July 22.
The 44-year-old rapper was supported at the event by Kim, their four children, sister, Khloe and ‘FoodGod’ Jonathan Cheban, among others.
The album also has a star-studded lineup.
His old pal Jay-Z is included. It marks the pair’s first collaboration in five years, having last teamed up on Drake’s 2016 track Pop Style.
Jay can be heard rapping: ‘Donda, I’m wit your baby when I touch back road / Told him stop all that red cap, we goin’ home / Cannot be with all of these sins casting stones / This might be the return of The Throne / Hova and Yeezy like Moses and Jesus.’

And according to Young Guru, Jay’s verse was added to the song just hours before fans got to hear it for the first time.
He tweeted: ‘HOV did the verse today!!!! At 4pm.’
Although tickets for the listening party were sold for between $20 and $50, Kanye reportedly gave 5,000 away to staff and students at local colleges and universities.
The album preview also revealed both Playboi Carti and Roddi Ricch appear on different songs on the record.
Carti could be heard rapping over an uptempo beat before Kanye took over the vocal, while Roddi features on a piano-led track with lines such as:

The hitmaker is currently living in the sports ground in Atlanta while finishing his upcoming album ‘Donda’ and it seems there’s not much to distract him from his work as his set-up is very basic.
Kanye shared a photo of his small room, which is sparsely furnished with just a small bed, an open-fronted closet, some workout equipment and a TV. The photograph showed a small selection of shoes and clothes and a bottle of water next to the bed, and a suitcase open on the floor.
Kanye hosted a listening party for his album at the stadium last week and was said to have been so inspired by the crowd, he decided to stay there to finish the record.
According to TMZ, he also has a studio space set up and there’s a chef on hand to prepare his meals for him.
