Childish Gambino announces fall tour with Rae Sremmurd

To say Donald Glover’s 2018 has so far been packed with nothing but good things would be an understatement. His hit show on FX, Atlanta, just kicked off its second season. He’s playing Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story film which is set to hit theaters in May. And we cannot forget the slew of Grammys he won earlier this year. With already so much accomplished within the first couple of months of the year, it would be kind of hard to follow it up.

On Monday (March 5), Glover announced that his musical alter-ego, Childish Gambino, will hit the road in the fall for a short, 13-stop tour. Taking to social media, Glover simply wrote: “childish gambino 2018 tour.”

The month-long excursion will kick off on Sept. 6 at the Infinite Energy Arena in Atlanta and conclude on Sept. 30 at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver.  Hitting the road alongside Glover for the trek will be hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd.

Tickets for the shows will go on sale to general public beginning this Friday, March 9, at noon local time. American Express Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Tuesday, March 6, at noon local time. American Express Card Members pre-sales will conclude on Thursday, March 8, at 10 p.m. local time.

The tour announcement comes hot on the heels of Glover announcing plans to retire his musical alter-ego once he releases his fourth studio album. As of now, only the release time frame and record label for the new album have been confirmed. Glover’s new album should be released by the end of 2018 through RCA Records.

The yet-to-be-titled record will be the follow-up to 2016’s Awaken, My Love!

The lineup for SunFest 2018 is out and like with past years, it looks like festival organizers made it their mission to make sure every music taste is satisfied. On Wednesday (Feb. 21), the official lineup for the 2018 incarnation of the annual South Florida music festival was unveiled. Headlining the four-day music festival this year will be Billy Idol, Girl Talk, Zedd, Incubus, Logic, Rae Sremmurd, Nick Jonas, 311, and Mr. Worldwide himself, Pitbull.

“We create our lineup to appeal to a variety of people and musical interests,” SunFest executive director Paul Jamieson explained in a statement.

As with past years, Jamieson’s statement still rings true. This year’s roster does have a little bit for every particular music taste as well as those who are interested in stepping out of their comfort zone. Holding down the fort for the pop-loving crowd are acts like Pitbull, Nick Jonas, Zedd, and DNCE while hip-hop fans will be able to enjoy performances by Rae Sremmurd and PartyNextDoor.

For the older fans in the crowd, the music festival was able to secure legendary acts like Billy Idol, who will headline the first night of the event, and KC and the Sunshine Band, who will perform Saturday afternoon. For the rock-loving crowd, bands like Incubus, Grouplove, Dreamers, and 311 will hit the stage throughout the weekend.

SunFest 2018 will invade downtown West Palm Beach from May 3 to May 6. The multi-stage event will return to its home on Flagler Drive right on the waterfront in downtown West Palm Beach. Early bird tickets are currently available on the festival’s website here. Early bird tickets cost $37-$75 with prices increasing on March 9.
