Kendrick Lamar is taking his breakout debut, “good kid, m.A.A.d city,” on the road with his first world tour.
The Compton rapper, currently headlining a spring college trek with Steve Aoki, will take his good kid, m.A.A.d city world tour across the U.S. and Europe this summer.
Lamar is taking a break between his tour with Aoki, and his summer jaunt. After he wraps his spring trek May 4, his world tour launches the next day with a slot at the SunFest Music and Arts Festival in West Palm Beach, Fla. He is scheduled to hit a number of festivals,, including Governors Ball, Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza.
The upcoming trek runs through Aug 24 with a show at Staples Center on June 29.
Lamar’s Staples gig is part of the events taking place during the BET Experience at L.A. Live on June 28-30.
Early last year, the BET network announced plans to expand its popular awards show into a three-day destination festival, and revealed a deal with Anschutz Entertainment Group to bring the telecast to the glitzy L.A. Live complex.
