Gucci Mane Shares Tour Dates
The Atlanta rapper shared his Trap God Tour dates on Instagram yesterday (Feb. 21). The month-long tour will kick off on April 5 in Boston, Mass. and continue in cities including New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. before wrapping up at Texas' JMBLYA Festival on May 5 and 6.
In a new interview with CR Men's Book, Gucci talks about the type of energy he wants to bring out at his live performances. “I’ve been looking at Flaming Lips concerts and, I’m not saying I want to do it just like they did it, but I want people to feel like that when they come to my show,” Guwop says. “I just want it to be like a big party. I want people to sweat. I don’t want people to come trying to look all pretty. No, I want you to leave the concert wet as hell, like you’ve been working out for damn near an hour and a half."
Mr. Zone 6 also talks about drawing inspiration from some of music's most legendary artists. “If I could mix anybody, I would want to mix Jimi Hendrix, the Flaming Lips, and Liberace," he says. "I want to look like Liberace, just big diamonds, shining. But I want the production to be like the Lips. I want the crowd to feel that sweat, like Hendrix. That’s how I want it.”
Guwop has held scattered shows throughout his 12-year career, but he has yet to go on an official tour. You can view the Trap God Tour dates below.
