J. Cole will embark on a massive North American tour this summer in support of his latest album, KOD.

The 34-date trek kicks off August 9th at the American Airlines Arena in Miami and includes stops in Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Detroit, Chicago, New York and more. The tour wraps October 10th at TD Garden in Boston.

Young Thug will serve as support throughout most of the tour, though he is not scheduled to appear during stops in Atlanta; Phoenix; Little Rock, Arkansas; New York City and Washington, D.C.

Tickets for J. Cole's KOD tour go on sale May 12th at 10 a.m. local time via the rapper's website and Live Nation. American Express cardholders will have access to a pre-sale starting May 8th, while a Spotify pre-sale starts May 11th. Fans can gain early access to pre-sale tickets by purchasing KOD bundles.

J. Cole released KOD last month, announcing the record just days before it arrived. The LP debuted atop the Billboard 200, recording the biggest sales week of 2018 so far, moving 397,000 total copies. KOD marks Cole's fifth LP and follows 2016's 4 Your Eyez Only
