Childish Gambino has announced his first run of headlining tour dates since the 2016 release of his Grammy-nominated album, Awaken, My Love! The tour will appropriately start out in Atlanta on Sept. 6 with a show at the Infinite Energy Arena, and will continue throughout the fall month before wrapping on Sept. 30 in Vancouver, Pitchfork reports. Tickets to select shows on the upcoming fall tour, which will welcome rap duo Rae Sremmurd as the support act, will be starting pre-sale on March 6 at 10 a.m., and can be purchased by clicking here.
A 13-date tour may seem a little too short to some fans’ liking, but when you think of everything that Childish Gambino/Donald Glover has on his 2018 to-do list, a month’s worth of shows seems awful generous. The month-long trek will see the actor/musician performing in mostly major cities around the U.S. and Canada, including New York City’s Madison Square Garden on Sept. 14. The NYC concert will be his first since performing at Governors Ball last summer, where he initially revealed that Awaken, My Love! may indeed be his second to last album under the Gambino moniker.
Glover’s award-winning “Atlanta” television series returned after a year off this past week, and he’s set to enter the sci-fi universe as the young Lando Calrissian in Ron Howard’s upcoming blockbuster, “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” when it arrives in theaters come late May.
News of the fall tour on Monday also comes a few days after Gambino revealed that fans will hear some “new music” at his PHAROS Festival in New Zealand on Nov. 23. The multi-day, technology and communal-driven event will reportedly reveal more satellite performance locations and artists as the festival draws closer.
