See original story below.
Playboi Carti’s first headlining tour in three years, dubbed the Narcissist tour, kicks off in Nashville next month.
The mosh-spurring Whole Lotta Red artist unveiled the dates for the two-month run early Wednesday. Per a press release, we can also expect “unique fan experiences” along the fall 2021 routing.
Kicking off his journey on Oct. 14 at the Municipal Auditorium in Nashville, Carti will then traverse the U.S. before wrapping up the extended run on Dec. 23 at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta.
Over the past few weeks, Carti has shared two similarly styled Instagram posts teasing a Sept. 13 date for something else titled “Narcissist.” It’s not yet been officially clarified whether this is a reference to a new song, project, or some sort of extension to last year’s WLR. In addition to briefly satiating fans who had been wondering about its release for two years, the latter also became Carti’s first-ever No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
See the full list of Narcissist tour dates below. Tickets go on sale for the general public on Sept. 2. The official Carti presale, meanwhile, begins today at 10 a.m. local time.
Last month, Carti was recruited by recent Polo Grounds and RCA Records singer Abra for the single “Unlock It.”
Speaking on what the collab means to her, Abra said it was “truly a blessing” to go on the resulting creative journey with a friend.
“I’ve always been so proud of what Carti’s been able to achieve and having the fortune of reuniting with him for this song specifically feels like a trophy to what the song is about—validation for the long winding journey it took to get here and makes me feel a little more at home in this crazy new world I’m about to step into!” she said.
More recently, Carti reunited with WLR co-executive producer Kanye West for a number of Donda tracks.
