Tyler, the Creator announces fall 2019 "IGOR Tour"
The 34-date tour will include Jaden Smith, GoldLink and Blood Orange.
Fresh off landing the first No.1 album of his career with his fifth solo album IGOR, Tyler, the Creator is keeping his hard-earned momentum going.
As announced on Monday (June 3), the 28-year-old is taking his latest work on the road and is bringing Jaden Smith, GoldLink and Blood Orange along for the ride.
The 34-date “IGOR Tour” will kick off at the Bumbershoot festival in Seattle on Aug. 30 and will hit cities such as New York, Atlanta, Miami and Dallas before going abroad to takeover London’s O2 Arena for three performances. The tour will then return to the states and wrap in Houston on Oct. 26.
According to the tour announcement, Smith will perform all September dates, while Blood Orange will sub in for the October dates. GoldLink has been tapped for all dates of the trek.
As previously reported, Tyler’s IGOR successfully beat out DJ Khaled’s Father of Asahd album, opening at 165,000 equivalent album sales.
“IGOR, NUMBER UNO, STANK YOU,” he tweeted at the time of learning his album had hit the top of the Billboard 200 chart. “honestly didnt think people would enjoy this album based on alot of things, so again, thank you, i mean it.”
The rapper’s highly anticipated return to London isn’t without drama. Earlier this month, he returned to the country four years after he was banned from entering due to the UK deeming in 2015 that his lyrics “encourage violence and intolerance of homosexuality” and “foster hatred with views that seek to provoke others to terrorist acts.”
As reported by The Guardian, while the ban no longer applies to him, his latest impromptu concert was canceled due to the size of the rowdy crowd. Seeing that he will perform a slew of dates this fall shows that Tyler, the Creator has found a way to make it up to his fans in London, a move sure to be appreciated by thousands overseas.
Tickets for the “IGOR Tour” are set to go on sale this Friday (June 7) and will be available through GOLFWANG.com.
