Stay awake, New Yorkers. Kanye West is planning to perform The Life of Pablo in the early hours of Monday morning.

The hip-hop star was slated to headline the Governors Ball music festival overnight, but the third day of the program was nixed due to inclement weather.

The show will go on, somewhere.

West's creative director Virgil Abloh revealed the rapper’s tacit plans in an Instagram post, which has been edited since it first went live. "Summer jam now. **PABLO details being sorted. update shortly," he writes.

An earlier version of the post was more specific on the show's start, and the borough. “Summer Jam now. We’re doing PABLO at 2 am in Manhattan. Sorting out where now," Abloh wrote earlier.

Earlier rumors had it West was a possibility to take the stage at Hot 97’s Summer Jam in New Jersey (Scooter Braun had said “stay tuned”).
