Playboi Carti Shares Dates for 2018 Summer Tour
One month after the surprise release of his new album Die Lit, Playboi Carti announces he's hitting the road. The "Magnolia" rapper shared dates and locations for a string of summer shows today (June 13).
Carti will hit 19 cities, kicking off in San Francisco on July 24 and closing in his hometown of Atlanta on Aug. 17. It's Carti's first tour since a 35-date run last summer in support of his self-titled debut mixtape. Carti also announced a joint tour last October with frequent collaborator Lil Uzi Vert, but it was unfortunately canceled one day later.
Supporting acts have not yet been announced. Uzi, Skepta, Travis Scott, Pi'erre Bourne, Bryson Tiller, Chief Keef, Gunna, Red Coldhearted, Young Thug and Young Nudy all feature on Carti's latest project, if that offers any clues. Nudy and Bourne both joined Carti on last summer's tour.
Since Die Lit dropped, Carti let loose a video for the album cut "R.I.P.," opened a pop-up merchandise shop in New York and performed "Poke It Out" with Nicki Minaj on Saturday Night Live. He also appeared on A$AP Rocky's new album Testing.
