Kendrick Lamar has scheduled a world tour for 2022 to celebrate the launch of his latest record, “Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers.”
The North American leg of The Big Steppers Tour will begin on July 19 at the Paycom Center in Oklahoma City and end on September 14 and 15 with two shows at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles.
In the fall, a European tour will unravel, beginning on October 7 at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam and including appearances in Berlin, Paris, Glasgow, Newcastle, Birmingham, Dublin, Manchester, Leeds, and London, among others. Additionally, there will be four performances in Australia, including one in New Zealand.
pgLang artists and record contributors Baby Keem and Tanna Leone will accompany Lamar on tour. pgLang is the multidisciplinary media organization he founded with Dave Free in March 2020.
The week prior, Lamar released ‘Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers,’ the follow-up to his 2017 Pulitzer-winning album ‘Damn.’ The album features voice contributions from Beth Gibbons of Portishead on ‘Mother I Sober’ and Sampha on ‘Father Time,’ among others. Next month, Lamar will also headline Glastonbury (June).
