Stormzy has announced a massive 2020 World Tour in support of his new album, Heavy Is The Head. The upcoming album is slated for release on Dec. 13.

The list of Heavy Is The Head The World Tour 2020 dates kicks off on February 7 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The tour will hit multiple continents and stop in major U.S. cities including Los Angeles (Tickets) and Brooklyn (Tickets).

Presales for select shows start on Dec. 4 and tickets will go on sale to the general public on Dec. 6 (Tickets).

Stormzy’s upcoming album is a follow up to his BRIT Award-winning 2019 debut album, Gang Signs & Prayer. Heavy Is The Head is currently available for pre-order and the British rapper recently treated fans to the YouTube video for the record’s latest single, “Own It,” which is a collab track featuring Ed Sheeran and Burna Boy. The album is arriving via #Merky Records and Atlantic Records UK. Other featured guest artists include H.E.R., Aitch, Headie One, and Yebba.

Stormzy has earned multiple accolades for his first album and is generating buzz for his highly anticipated sophomore effort. Its lead single, “Vossi Bop,” entered the UK Singles Chart at No. 1 upon its release back in April. The track marked his first new music since his debut album and is also his first No. 1 single on his native UK Singles chart. It also topped the UK R&B chart.

The Croydon native artist loves to amp up his live crowds. He’s also very candid about using his platform to make social and political statements. The cover art for Heavy Is The Head features Stormzy holding the bulletproof vest he wore during his 2019 Glastonbury Festival performance, which features a black-and-white Union Jack symbol.

The 2020 Heavy Is The Head Tour will hit his native UK as well as Ireland in September, following a string of North American dates in May and June.
