6lack is about to hit the road this fall.
6lack definitely had a great 2017 thusfar. He dropped his debut album, Free 6lack, in late 2016 and his moody R&B music has taken the world by storm. Between receiving a platinum plaque earlier for "PRBLMS" and touring with The Weeknd on his "Legend of the Fall" tour, it's safe to say that he didn't slow down one bit. Now with all of that under his belt, he took to Twitter to announce his very first headlining tour which will take him around the U.S.A and also bring his talent to Australia for the first time.
The "Free6lack" tour will kick off this October before finishing at the end of November. The tour kicks off in San Diego on October 8th, before he does two dates in Melbourne and Sydney, Australia. He will also be grabbing R&B and Soul singer Sabrina Claudio as an opening act for the tour except for three dates including the Australia ones. She's been making waves with her moody R&B releases and since she'll be opening for 6lack, it's safe to say this is a tour you'll have a fear of missing out on.
The poster he revealed today also included a date at Tyler, the Creator's "Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival" on October 28th which is interesting considering that Tyler has yet to reveal the line-up so 6lack may actually the one of the first artists confirmed to be at the annual festival.
The tour will finish in Tampa Bay, FL on November 29th and only includes one Canadian date which will be in Toronto on November 14th.
With the tour underway, it's safe to say that 6lack is keeping the ball rolling. Although he comes across as a very low-key character in the music industry, as of late, he's been spotted in the studio with Timbaland as well as Playboi Carti. Who knows where those collaborations will end up, seeing as none of them have had a confirmed placement as of yet but it's no doubt that they will come out great. His album Free6lack was a strong debut project off top. Hopefully after the tour, he'll be back in the studio to finish up his sophomore release.
