Kendrick Lamar is going on a “DAMN. Tour.” Fresh off headlining back-to-back weekends at Coachella, Kung Fu Kenny has announced a headlining summer arena run, featuring Travis Scott and D.R.A.M. as supporting acts.
Kicking off July 12 in Phoenix, Ariz., the 17-date Live Nation trek is slated to hit cities like Dallas, Houston, Atlanta, and Brooklyn, before finishing off in Dot’s hometown Los Angeles on Aug. 6.
Last year, K-Dot embarked on several festival dates, including FYF Fest in L.A. The Compton rapper’s last tour was 2015’s “Kunta’s Groove Sessions Tour,” an eight-date journey in support of To Pimp a Butterfly.
Kendrick has plenty of reasons to be excited about his next tour. It comes on the heels of his critically-acclaimed album DAMN., which just topped the Billboard 200 with 603,000 equivalent album units, the largest debut of the year.
American Express members will have access to the pre-sale, starting Tuesday, April 25 at 10 a.m. local time. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, April 28 through Ticketmaster.
