On the heels of the release of his highly-anticipated sophomore album True to Self, Bryson Tiller now announces his European leg of the SET IT OFF TOUR. Presented by Concerts West/AEG Presents, the Set It Off Tour kicks off 17 October in Marseille, France and hits 23 cities and 13 countries before concluding in Dublin, Ireland.
The European leg features SZA, whose recently released album Ctrl garnered massive critical acclaim and clinched the No. 3 spot on the Billboard 200 chart, as well as a special guest to be announced. The new dates mark Bryson’s second headlining tour and the first since his hugely successful T R A P S O U L Tour, which sold out 47 dates in both the US and Europe, including two back-to-back shows at Radio City Music Hall.
Bryson’s previously-announced North American Set It Off tour dates will kick off this August in Atlanta and make over 25 stops including two nights at Radio City Music Hall and the singer’s first time at Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre before concluding for a hometown finale at Louisville’s KFC Yum! Center.
Clinching the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart with the release of his sophomore album True to Self, Bryson Tiller continues to captivate fans following the success of his 2015 album, T R A P S O U L. True to Self marks the singer’s first No. 1 debut in the US, also claiming the top spots on the Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums, R&B Albums and Digital Albums charts and garnering 107,000 equivalent album units in its first week, according to Nielsen Music. Proclaimed by Variety as, “one of the biggest records of the summer, if not the year,” True to Self has been streamed more than 400 million times worldwide, with its lead single “Somethin Tells Me” amassing 36 million streams worldwide since its May 11th release. Tiller’s debut album T R A P S O U L also reached significant milestones, including RIAA Platinum certification with over 2.1 billion streams in the U.S. Album tracks “Don’t” and “Exchange” are certified Triple Platinum, “Sorry Not Sorry” is certified Platinum and “Rambo” and “Overtime” are certified Gold by the RIAA. Among his many accomplishments, Tiller was nominated for a GRAMMY (Best R&B Song for “Exchange”), won two BET Awards for Best New Artist and Best Male R&B/Pop Artist and has sold-out 47 shows on his “T R A P S O U L Tour” in both the U.S. and Europe. Bryson will return to the stage once again for his forthcoming “Set It Off Tour,” where he will perform fan favorites from both T R A P S O U L and True to Self.
One of the redefining voices of today’s contemporary music era, SZA entered the music scene in 2012 with her first critically acclaimed EP, See.SZA.Run. Following that, she released S in 2013 and Z in 2014, both to rave reviews. In 2013, SZA signed to Top Dawg Entertainment, being the first female artist to join the label. SZA wrote and performed on Rihanna’s Anti single “Consideration” in 2016 and helped write Nicki Minaj and Beyonce’s “Feelin Myself” in 2014. The June release of her long-awaited major label debut album Ctrl was met with overwhelming critical praise, claiming the No. 3 spot on the Billboard 200 albums chart and No. 1 on Billboard’s R&B Albums and No. 2 on the R&B/Hip Hop Albums charts, according to Nielsen Music. Born in St. Louis and raised in Maplewood, NJ as Solána Rowe, SZA grew up listening to classic and avant-garde jazz, alternative, and rap. She renamed herself finding inspiration within the Supreme Alphabet: the ‘S’ stands for savior or sovereign, the ‘Z’ for zig-zag, and the ‘A’ for Allah.
