It's hard to believe that Gucci Mane hasn't officially toured throughout his 12-year career, but the rapper has just revealed that he'll be hitting the road for the first time with his freshly announced 2017 TrapGod Tour.
Gucci's inaugural tour will include dates in April and May, spanning from Boston to Austin. Scroll down to see the list of dates and get tickets on Feb. 24 at 10 a.m. ET at LiveNation.com.
In a recent conversation with Marilyn Manson for CR Men's Book, the rapper has said he's been studying the stage antics of The Flaming Lips, Liberace and Jimi Hendrix for inspiration for his upcoming shows.
“I’ve been looking at Flaming Lips concerts and, I’m not saying I want to do it just like they did it, but I want people to feel like that when they come to my show,” he said. “I just want it to be like a big party. I want people to sweat. I don’t want people to come trying to look all pretty. No, I want you to leave the concert wet as hell, like you’ve been working out for damn near an hour and a half.
“If I could mix anybody,” he added, “I would want to mix Jimi Hendrix, the Flaming Lips, and Liberace. I want to look like Liberace, just big diamonds, shining. But I want the production to be like the Lips. I want the crowd to feel that sweat, like Hendrix. That’s how I want it.”
