J. Cole will embark on a massive, 57-date world tour this June in support of his latest album, 4 Your Eyez Only.

The trek begins with a string of 13 shows at smaller venues throughout the South and Midwest, starting June 1st at the Music Farm in Columbia, South Carolina and wrapping June 17th at the Norva in Norfolk, Virginia. After that, J. Cole will return to his home state for a show at the Cone Denim Entertainment Center in Greensboro, North Carolina, kicking off a long stretch of arena dates that wraps August 20th at the American Airlines Center in Dallas.

Following the North American leg, J. Cole will spend September and October touring Europe and the U.K. before heading to Australia and New Zealand in December.

Tickets for the 4 Your Eyez Only tour go sale February 24th via J. Cole's website, though fans will also have the chance to score pre-sale tickets on February 22nd. American Express cardholders in select markets will be able to purchase tickets between February 21st at noon local time and February 23rd at 10 p.m. local time.

J. Cole released 4 Your Eyez Only last December, his first since 2014's 2014 Forest Hills Drive. Last month, the rapper shared a new song, "High for Hours," which included a verse recalling his meeting with former President Barack Obama.
