Renaissance man Kendrick Lamar is taking to the stage in Vancouver this summer.
The Compton rapper and songwriter has announced he’ll be playing a show at Rogers Arena on August 2 as part of his ‘The Damn. Tour’.
And he’s not doing it alone. The seven-time grammy winner will be joined by support acts Travis Scott and D.R.A.M on his 17-city tour.
Kicking off at the Gala Arena in Phoenix in July, the tour will see Lamar play shows in Las Vegas, Dallas, Brooklyn, Seattle, and Toronto, among other US locations before finishing the tour in his hometown of LA.
The tour comes after the launch of his critically-acclaimed fourth studio album, DAMN, and his anticipated performance at Coachella.
The 29-year-old hip hop musician’s new album hit the number one spot on the Billboard 200, marking his third time at the top spot.
You can expect to hear songs from Lamar’s older albums Untitled Unmastered, To Pimp a Butterfly, Overly Dedicated, and C4, as well as new tracks like Humble at his summer show in the city.
