Lil Yachty Is Heading On Tour
After making a splash in hip-hop all year, the ATL's red-haired wonder Lil Yachty is gearing up to set sail on his first headlining tour.
"Now Announcing My First Headliner Tour. "The Boat Show" This Is Gonna Be Soooo Lit. Bringing my friends along!!! Tickets go on sale 10 A.M July 8th!," wrote Lil Boat on Instagram when posting the official tour dates today (July 5).
The Quality Control signee and newly minted 2016 XXL Freshman has definitely proven he can command a crowd of concert goers. The self-proclaimed "King of the Teens" was a show stopper during his set at the NYC Freshman concert. Fans of the 18-year-old chanted "Yachty" and "Lil Boat" before he even hit the stage. And even when Yachty did appear onstage as an official XXL Freshman, the kids went crazy, moshing and singing along with every word of his hit singles "1Night" and "Minnesota." And though he's young, the ATL rhymer has already travelled all around the U.S. for appearances and hopped on some of Young Thug's select tour dates. The nautically-inclined newcomer will likely be bringing his best friend and producer Burberry Perry along for the ride, as well as other members of his Sailing Team crew.
Yachty's headlining tour is set to kick off in Canada this August, but not before he performs as a Freshman again at XXL's Los Angeles show July 25. Check the tour dates below to see if Lil Boat will be docking in your city for a concert this summer.
