Donald Glover has spent the last few months cooped up on production sets filming movies including Disney’s Han Solo anthology film and live-action remake of The Lion King in addition to the second season of his acclaimed FX series, Atlanta. Come September, however, Glover will get a chance to stretch his legs as he’ll head out on the road to perform a series of concerts as his hip-hop alter ego, Childish Gambino.

Kicking off September 6th in Atlanta, the 13-city tour includes massive gigs at Madison Square Garden in NYC, Chicago’s United Center, and the Forum in Los Angeles. Accompanying Glover for each of the dates will be hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd. Tickets go on sale beginning Friday, March 9th (you can also grab them here).

In addition to the North American dates, Glover has also announced another edition of his “immersive virtual reality, multi-sensory concert experience” known as Pharos, which is set to take place from November 23rd-25th in Auckland, New Zealand.

Glover previously announced his intention to end Childish Gambino, explaining, “There’s nothing worst than like a third sequel, like a third movie and we’re like, ‘again?’” However, in January he struck a deal with RCA Records that promised to “usher in the next phase of Childish Gambino’s musical career.”
