Kendrick Lamar tickets for the Big Stepper Tour 2022 are available to buy now from Ticketmaster and LiveNation
Just after the release of his newest album, Kendrick Lamar has officially announced the dates of his brand new tour - and he’s taking it worldwide.
The Big Steppers Tour will be Lamar’s first since his 2018 tour for album The DAMN. The rapper posted the poster for it to his official Twitter page on Friday last week (13 May).
The tour will showcase the best of Lamar’s new album, Mr Morale and The Big Steppers, which featured the likes of Florence Welch, Summer Walker and Beth Gibbons.
Highlights from the 73-minute album include Crown, Die Hard, Father Time and We Cry Together, as the rapper reflects on his own life as a musician and as a father.
The Independent’s review awarded the album five stars, dubbing it more “introspective” and “tender” than any of his previous. You can read the full review here.
