Kendrick Lamar is currently on fire, as the old cliche goes. Except instead of dousing himself with water, he's stoking the flames. Merely 10 days after the release of his fourth album, Damn., the Compton rapper has announced a slew of dates to feed the heat.
The Damn. Tour, announced on Monday, will feature special guests Travis Scott and D.R.A.M. The 17-date trek will kick off in July in Phoenix, Arizona. It concludes with a hometown gig at the Staples Center on August 6.
Tickets for The Damn Tour go on sale on April 28 at 10 a.m. Here's a handy link for the tickets, if you need it!
This is Lamar's first string of live shows since his set of intimate Kunta's Groove Sessions in the fall of 2015.
Scott finishes up his own Birds Eye View Tour in June, then jumps into Bonnaroo, and then goes straight into The Damn. Tour. Get tickets to that too.
