In a galaxy not so far, far way, Donald Glover, a.k.a. Childish Gambino, on Monday announced his North American tour, which includes a Sept. 8 stop at Chicago’s United Center.
The actor/writer/singer/rapper has been super busy of late, filming his role as Lando Calrissian in Disney’s “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” so the tour won’t kick off until Sept. 6 (in Atlanta). Special guest will be Rae Sremmurd.
Tickets for the 13-date tour will go on sale to the general public at noon March 9 via ticketmaster.com. A special pre-sale for AMEX cardholders kicks off at noon March 6.
Glover also is currently starring in season two of his FX series “Atlanta.” Other upcoming film projects include the live-action version of “The Lion King,” in which he voices Simba. The film co-stars Beyonce, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Seth Rogen and James Earl Jones and is set for a 2019 theatrical release.
