KFC Yum! Center - Saturday, September 16, 2017
NEW YORK, NY (May 30, 2017) – On the heels of the surprise release of his highly-anticipated sophomore album True to Self, BRYSON TILLER today announces his SET IT OFF TOUR, which will kick off this August in Atlanta and make over 25 stops before concluding for a hometown finale at Louisville’s KFC Yum! Center. The news follows a massive Memorial Day Weekend for the singer-songwriter, who surprised fans Thursday at midnight by making his long-awaited T R A P S O U L follow-up True to Self available for digital streaming an entire month ahead of its planned release date of June 23rd. The new dates, which feature special guest openers H.E.R. and Metro Boomin, 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. Presale tickets for Bryson Tiller’s Set It Off Tour can be purchased beginning Wednesday, May 31, and general tickets will be available to the public on Friday, June 2 at 10am local via http://www.trapsoul.com and AEGPresents.com. With the purchase of any product on Bryson’s webstore, users will receive a unique pre-sale code for early access to tickets. Codes will be valid from 5/31 – 6/1.
Following a breakout 2016 that saw the meteoric rise of the Kentucky native, True to Self arrives amidst overwhelming critical buzz and anticipation. Earlier this month, Bryson gave fans a taste of what can be expected from his T R A P S O U L follow-up, releasing three tracks of all-new material. With True to Self’s hype at an all-time high, Bryson made the full 19-track project available for digital streaming almost a month in advance of the album’s previously announced physical release on June 23. On the release date alone, True to Self streamed over 25 million times across all streaming services in the U.S., while the single “Somethin Tells Me” currently has over 13 million streams worldwide since its May 11th release. The video for the single has nearly 2 million views so far since its midnight debut on Thursday.
With the release of his second album, True to Self, Bryson Tiller will continue to captivate fans following the success of his 2015 album, T R A P S O U L. Tiller’s debut album 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 Staples Center to take the stage once again at the 2017 BET Experience concert on Friday, June 23rd where he will perform fan favorites from T R A P S O U L and True to Self.
