Kendrick Lamar is bringing his DAMN tour to a city near you this summer. So mark your calendars and get ready to turn all the way up.
Produced by Live Nation, the 17-city tour will kick off at the Gila River Arena on July 12.
Backing K-Dot on this super lit tour is Astroworld rapper, Travi$ Scott and “Broccoli” singer, D.R.A.M.
The DAMN tour follows Kendrick’s great set at Coachella 2017 and the successful launch of DAMN, his third studio album.
Debuting at #1 on Billboard 200, the LP sold more than 603,000 units in its first week and netted over 340,000,000 streams.
This is the third time the multi-Grammy-winning emcee has made it to the top of Billboard charts.
DAMN focuses on cultural issues among today’s millennials, and fans and critics are loving it.
Pitchfork said: “DAMN is a widescreen masterpiece of rap, full of expensive beats, furious rhymes, and peerless storytelling about Kendrick‘s destiny in America.”
Adding to that, Rolling Stone said it’s a “dazzling display of showy rhyme skills, consciousness-raising political screeds, self-examination, and bass-crazy-kicking.”
From receiving generally positive reviews to unit sales trumping Drake‘s More Life—K-Dot is making major waves in the mainstream.
Fans, friends, and critics aren’t the only ones on board with K-Dot.
