Chilidsh Gambino is finally going on tour.
Many fans were scared that we’d never get a tour from the “3005” rapper again since Donald Glover has talked about ditching his musician moniker a few times in recent interviews. It looks like we don’t have to worry about that after all–at least not in the very near future–as the Atlanta native just announced that he’s going on tour later on this year with special guest Rae Sremmurd.
The tour is going to serve as the first time Gambino has toured in support of his last studio album, Grammy-nominated Awaken, My Love!. As aforementioned, this could be the last time he tours as Childish Gambino, because he re-confirmed earlier this year that he, at some point, plans to retire the name. His reasoning? He explained during a Q&A ceremony at January’s Grammy Awards, “I’m still making another project right now. But I like endings. I think they’re important to progress.”
Childish Gambino’s North American tour is set to kick off in his hometown of Atlanta on September 6, later stopping in about a dozen cities across the United States and Canada.
