Donald Glover announced this morning that he‚Äôs going on tour as his hip-hop alter-ego Childish Gambino for nearly the entire month of September. The 13-city tour starts at Duluth‚Äôs Infinite Energy Arena on September 6 and then moves to several major US and Canadian cities, including Chicago, Philadelphia, New York, Toronto, Seattle, and Oakland, with the final show in Vancouver on September 30. Glover‚Äôs latest album, Awaken My Love, was released in December 2016‚ÄĒmore than a year ago‚ÄĒbut we can‚Äôt exactly fault him for being busy. In the time since the album‚Äôs release, he‚Äôs produced the second season of Atlanta, played Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Solo film, and don‚Äôt forget, he‚Äôs also playing Simba in Disney‚Äôs upcoming Lion King reboot. Southern hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd is the tour‚Äôs special guest.

Pre-sales start March 6 at 10 a.m., and general tickets go on sale Friday.
