Future Announces Free Tour
The Dirty Sprite 2 campaign continues in full force. Future recently announced he will be embarking on a free, four-city "Salute The Fans" Tour, starting tomorrow (July 20). Earlier today, the astronaut kid took to Instagram and revealed the news via a flyer for the short jaunt. Future will hit up four major cities in four days, starting off Monday in his hometown Atlanta, before moving on to Chicago, New York and Los Angeles in consecutive days. According to the flyer, times and show locations will be given out the morning of each show.
The tour comes on the heels of the rapper's release of his third studio album, Dirty Sprite 2 which dropped Friday (July 17). According to projections, DS2 is set to move between 125,000 and 135,000 copies in its first week on shelves. That would almost triple the numbers from the first weeks sales of his last album Honest which was released last year.
The project seemed to come out of nowhere, but the hype train started last October when the codeine cowboy put out his well-received mixtape Monster. He followed that up in January with the Zaytoven-produced Beast Mode. 56 Nights in March completed the trifecta. In between the projects, Future put out over a dozen videos for tracks off the mixtapes, plus a five-part documentary titled Like I Never Left, which added even more buzz for the impending studio album.
Check out the flyer for the tour, below and stay posted for details on each day's events.
