The announcement comes as the rapper releases latest album Mr Morale & The Big Steppers
The world’s biggest rapper Kendrick Lamar has announced a handful of UK arena dates as part of his The Big Steppers world tour. Tickets for the shows go on sale at 10am on Friday 20 May. Find a full list of his UK tour dates at the bottom of this article.
The announcement comes on the same day as the release of Lamar’s Mr Morale & The Big Steppers, an ambitious double album that covers themes of Christianity, racism, filial apathy, the crisis of masculinity, and the responsibility of the artist.
Starting on Wednesday 2 November at Glasgow's OVO Hydro, the tour will then hit Leeds, Newcastle, Birmingham, two nights in London, Dublin, and culminate on Wednesday 16 November at Manchester's AO Arena. Support on the tour comes from Baby Keem and Tanna Leone on all dates.
We were impressed by Lamar’s arena show when he hit Glasgow's Hydro in 2018, writing, ‘That Lamar requires no gimmicks or major props during his set, aside from the occasional martial artist and stage effect, is a testament to his commanding presence and his ability to pull all focus onto his rhythmic vigour and subtly dynamic movements.’ Read the full review here.
Watch Lamar’s latest single ‘The Heart Part 5’, which mysteriously doesn’t feature on Mr Morale & The Big Steppers, below.
