LOS ANGELES (Jul 16, 2018) – Atlanta rapper Russ today announced the continuation of his North American trek with the I See You Tour Part 2. Produced by Live Nation, the 13 new additional dates will kick off October 19 in Wallingford, CT and make stops in New York, Houston, Los Angeles and more before wrapping November 15 in Seattle, WA. The new leg will also include a hometown show in Atlanta, GA at the Infinite Energy Arena. Full routing below.

Presales for the tour will begin Wednesday, July 18 at 10am local time. Tickets for the October 24th show will go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, July 20 at 10am local time at www.InfiniteEnergyCenter.com, the Arena box office, or by calling (770) 626-2464.

The Atlanta-based hip-hop recording artist, Russ, had breakout success over the past year, with his self-penned debut album, There's Really A Wolf, released by Russ My Way Inc./Columbia Records in May 2017. Entering the Billboard 200 chart at No. 7, reaching the top five on Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop chart, the album went certified platinum by the RIAA in the U.S in 2018. The album served as the perfect showcase for his DIY approach with all 20 songs having been written, produced, mixed, mastered and engineered entirely by himself.  It includes Russ's first two Hot 100 hits, the double-platinum certified "What They Want" and double-platinum success "Losin Control.” The popularity of the album helped Russ surpass 1.1 billion audio streams in the U.S. in 2017, making him one of Nielsen Music's 30 most streamed artists of the year. This placed him above a number of superstar acts, including Beyoncé, Coldplay and Childish Gambino. His strong vision and self-belief has resulted in six sold out tours, over 676 million YouTube views, 10 million monthly listeners on Spotify, and over 2 billion plays of his vast catalog, all sung word for word by his dedicated fan base at sold-out shows across the globe.
