Kendrick Lamar has announced a summer tour in support of his new album, DAMN.. Support will come from Travis Scott and D.R.A.M.
The tour, which will stop at arenas nationwide, will kick off July 12th in Glendale, Arizona and concludes August 8th in Los Angeles.
DAMN. debuted at #1 on the Billboard charts and had the highest single-week of any album released this year (unseating Drake’s More Life). It’s also Lamar’s third consecutive #1 album (following last year’s untitled unmastered. and 2015’s To Pimp a Butterfly).
Like To Pimp a Butterfly, DAMN. does not feature a single appearance from Lamar’s Top Dawg affiliates. It does, however, feature Rihanna (on “LOYALTY.”) and U2 (on “XXX.”)
Opener Travis Scott is currently on tour behind his sophomore album, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight. He recently shared the stage with Lamar at Coachella and features the rapper on his single “Goosebumps.”
Support will also come from D.R.A.M., who released his debut, Big Baby D.R.A.M., in 2016. His single “Broccoli” features an appearance from Lil Yachty and was nominated for a Grammy for “Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.”
