Donald Glover a.k.a. Childish Gambino, who has played just a handful of live dates in the past 18 months, has announced dates for a North American tour with special guest Rae Sremmurd in support. Produced by Live Nation in partnership with Glover’s managers Wolf + Rothstein, the jaunt will hit 13 cities across North America, kicking off in Atlanta on September 6 and wrapping in Vancouver on September 30.

Glover, who performed a riveting version of “Terrified” at the Grammy Awards earlier this year, said that he plans to retire the Childish Gambino name after his next album, which will be on RCA Records. The new label deal was announced during Grammy week: The initial announcement said that new music was coming later this year, and although a rep quickly revised that statement to be less specific, Glover promised he will perform new music at the next installment of his “Pharos” festival, which he premiered in Joshua Tree, California in 2016; those performances were recorded and released on the vinyl edition of his latest album “Awaken, My Love!,” which garnered three Grammy nominations and won one.
