Chance the Rapper will promote his recently issued debut LP, The Big Day, on a massive North American tour this fall. The 35-date trek launches Saturday September 14th in San Francisco, California and wraps November 10th at the Miami Beach Pop Fest alongside Daddy Yankee and the Raconteurs.

Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, August 2nd at 10 a.m. local time via the rapper’s website. A Citi card pre-sale runs Monday, July 29th at 1 p.m. ET through Thursday, August 1st at 10 p.m. local time.

While The Big Day marks Chance the Rapper’s first full-length album, it’s far from his debut studio project. The all-star record — which features contributions from John Legend, Ben Gibbard, Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, Shawn Mendes, Randy Newman and Nicki Minaj, among others — follows a handful of acclaimed mixtapes, including 2016’s Grammy-winning Coloring Book.

In a mid-July Tonight Show spot, Chance revealed that he served as a “nostalgia consultant” — at the request of the film’s co-star Donald Glover — on the new Lion King remake.

“He contacted me while they were working on it and was like ‘Hey, I told Jon Favreau, the director, that you were a huge fan and he wants you to come in as a nostalgia consultant to tell him what Nineties kids like about The Lion King,'” Chance told Jimmy Fallon. “So that’s what I did.” He added, “It did get me another gig. I did a little bit of slight vocal work on the animated film. You won’t know it’s me. It’s very weird. I do, like, a lot of the background noises. In very small parts, like if you see an antelope grazing or something.”
