Childish Gambino has announced a short tour in support of his Awaken, My Love! album. Rae Sremmurd will serve as his supporting act for the first 14 dates, with Vince Staples opening on the final five shows.

Donald Glover’s musical alter ego kicks off the arena jaunt in his native Atlanta on September 6th. The run of shows with Rae Sremmurd, which includes a pair of performances at New York City’s Madison Square Garden, wraps up in Vancouver on September 30th. Staples will join Glover from October 2nd in San Jose, California through October 12th in Nashville.

Awaken, My Love!, Childish Gambino’s third LP, came out in December of 2016. It included the single “Redbone,” which is the biggest hit of Childish Gambino’s career – the track climbed to Number 12 on the Hot 100 and sold over four million units. “Redbone” also won the Best Traditional R&B Performance award at the Grammys in January.

Following the success of Awaken, My Love!, Childish Gambino moved from the rock-focused independent label Glassnote to the major label RCA. Glover also re-released his 2011 mixtape Ep and is set to appear as Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story, which arrives in May.
