Seven-time Grammy-winning hip-hop Renaissance man, Kendrick Lamar, is set to embark on The DAMN. Tour this summer, announced today. Produced by Live Nation, The DAMN. Tour, featuring special guests Travis Scott and D.R.A.M., will see 17 cities beginning July 12 in Phoenix at the Gila River Arena, including stops in Dallas, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Boston, and Vancouver, culminating in a triumphant return to hometown Los Angeles on August 6 at Staples Center. Complete itinerary below.
The DAMN. Tour follows a spectacular appearance at Coachella and the release of his critically acclaimed fourth studio album, DAMN. (Top Dawg Entertainment/Aftermath/Interscope Records), with a debut at #1 on the Billboard 200 – marking his third time at the top spot – selling north of 603,000 album units and having amassed over 340 million streams and features 14 tracks observing the complexities of today’s culture. Pitchfork cites “DAMN. is a widescreen masterpiece of rap, full of expensive beats, furious rhymes, and peerless storytelling about Kendrick’s destiny in America.” and Rolling Stone declares DAMN. a “dazzling display of showy rhyme skills, consciousness-raising political screeds, self-examination and bass-crazy-kicking…”
