J Cole is Taking the ‘KOD’ Experience On Tour and Is Bringing Young Thug Along For The Ride

J. Cole’s fifth studio album, KOD, debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 when it arrived on April 20, 2018. It marks J. Cole’s fifth consecutive #1 on the chart and along with scoring the biggest streaming week for an album, so far in 2018, KOD has earned the third biggest streaming week for an album in all of chart history. In the first week, ending on April 26th, KOD sold 397K equivalent album units while its songs accumulated over 322 million audio stream making Cole the third artist in history to surpass 300 million audio streams in its debut week.

With all this streaming success, the Born Sinner artist had to take the KOD experience on tour. Cole fans are geeked over his return to the stage after his 2017 “4 Your Eyez Only” tour which spanned June 1st to December 9th. Presale is available now and general admission sales begin Saturday, May 12th. The 34 date tour, produced by Live Nation, will begin on August 9th in Miami, making stops from coast to coast before wrapping in Boston on October 10th. Young Thug is billed as special guest but won’t be present for every single date on the KOD Tour. He’s expected to not perform in Atlanta, Phoenix, Little Rock, New York or Washington, D.C. so if you’re a fan make sure you’re checking the website before purchasing tickets.

Fans have met Thugger’s special guest status with both praise and confusion on social media as KOD discusses drugs and mumble rap. Whether or not you agree or disagree with Young Thug’s placement on tour, the full Cole World experience will be at each and every location.
