Tyler, the Creator has shared dates for his two-month long IGOR trek. Jaden Smith, Blood Orange, and GoldLink will be support for the tour.

Tyler will kick off his 34-show tour as the headliner of Seattle's Bumbershoot Festival, which takes place Aug. 30 to Sept. 1. He'll also make stops in Chicago, New York, and San Francisco before the tour comes to a close on Oct. 26 in Houston. GoldLink will open all tour dates, while Jaden will act as direct support for all September shows and Blood Orange for all October shows.


Tyler's fifth studio album IGOR dropped on May 17 and landed him his first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart. Because he produced the entire album, that means he's also the first solo rapper to secure a No. 1 album without co-production or outside producer credits. Since then, eight out of 12 songs from the project have also entered Billboard's Hot 100 chart. 

While Tyler is rapping throughout the project, he also gets in some singing, and Kendrick Lamar played a part in that happening. "I know I'm not the best singer, but a friend of mine named Kendrick, I played him some stuff, and he said, 'Oh, this shit is just feeling," Tyler said earlier this month during a performance.
