Killer Mike has announced a new solo headline tour of North America, set to take place this summer in support of his upcoming solo album, MICHAEL.
The Run The Jewels rapper will head out on his first major solo outing since touring in support of his 2012 album R.A.P Music in July. Billed as Killer Mike and the Midnight Revival, the star will kick off The High & Holy Tour in Birmingham, Alabama, on July 10, before making his way across the US.
Along the way, he will perform at iconic venues like Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, New York’s The Apollo, and Minneapolis’ First Avenue and appear at Chicago’s Pitchfork Music Festival. The dates will wrap in New Orleans on August 5.
Tickets will go on sale at 10am local time on Friday (May 5), with a special fan pre-sale opening on Wednesday (3). Find more details and purchase tickets here.
Killer Mike’s new solo album MICHAEL will be released on June 16 via Loma Vista. The record will introduce the world to the totality of Michael Render, a lifelong rap fiend whose consciousness is seeped in the sounds of the community that raised him–multiple eras of southern rap flows, Sunday church service, and barbershop discourse. The album is his most autobiographical and independent album to date.
So far, the rapper has shared three singles from MICHAEL – the El-P-produced “Don’t Let The Devil,” “Run,” and “Talk’n That S__t.” Before “Run” was released, the song appeared in a Killer Mike-starring nationally televised Cadillac campaign, “Black Future” for the Escalade V Series, which debuted in June 2022.
