Kendrick Lamar Announces “The Big Steppers Tour” This Summer

Kendrick Lamar is going on tour this summer in a big way.

The Compton rapper has announced a tour on the heels of the release of his double album, Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, which dropped today, May 13. It seems Kendrick Lamar is bent on sharing his message with everyone and hopes that the tour, entitled “The Big Steppers Tour,” will reach a wider audience than the album itself.

The Compton rapper has also added pgLang’s own Baby Keem and Tanna Leone as part of the traveling crew. The tour, which will go beyond the borders of the US was sponsored by Amazon Music, Rotation, and Cash App. It is expected to get going on July 19 in Oklahoma City before the crew treks across many cities in the US and Canada.

Some of the states he will stop in include Brooklyn, Miami, Chicago, Atlanta, and Dallas. The US part of the tour will end in his home state with two back-to-back shows at LA’s Crypto.com Arena on September 14 and 15.

Following that, he heads across to Europe for a two-month stint and will hit some of the major European cities, including Paris, Berlin, and London. And it looks like it will be a busy year for the rapper as in December, he travels to Australia and New Zealand to end the tour. Tickets go on sale next Friday, May 20.

Check out the tour dates below and see when you can catch K-Dot live.
