2015’s breakout R&B artist Bryson Tiller has officially announced his debut headlining “T R A P S O U L Tour.” The tour kicks off January 24th in Portland, OR and concludes in Tiller’s home city of Louisville, KY on March 12th. Tickets for the tour will go on sale on Friday, December 18th via www.trapsoul.com.
The announcement of the tour concludes what has been a great year for the young newcomer that saw his first LP T R A P S O U L arrive at #2 on Billboard’s R&B Albums chart and #4 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. The project has remained a fixture on the Billboard 200 chart during its 11 weeks of release. The LP was lead by the smash single, “Don’t,” which currently sits amongst the top 5 on the Urban Mainstream Airplay chart and has received over 80 million combined streams.
In addition to his chart success, Tiller’s music has become extremely popular among critics. Apple Music named Bryson “Best New Artist of 2015.” Tiller’s unique brand of trap and R&B has also caught the attention of various celebrities including Rihanna, Drake, Kylie Jenner, Big Sean, Trey Songz and Chris Brown among others.
The “T R A P S O U L Tour” marks Bryson’s first headlining tour since supporting much-talked about rapper Travis Scott this past fall. The tour will also feature special guest THEY., the third signing to budding Los Angeles based label Mind of a Genius. The duo dropped their debut Nu Religion EP this October and received praise from Beats 1’s New York anchor Ebro, who called THEY. “the crew you need to know about and invest your time in.”
With a plethora of fans and his first headlining tour, 2016 will surely see Bryson Tiller morph from rising newcomer to bona fide entertainer.
