Two years after the pandemic unofficially began, the rapper will bring his tour with Kali Uchis and Vince Staples to Scotiabank Arena
We’re starting to get our feet wet with outdoor concerts and small, restricted indoor shows, but Toronto is getting some big announcements for live music starting in the fall and stretching well into next year.
How does an arena hip-hop show sound? Tyler, The Creator is bringing his tour to Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena on March 11, 2022. The concert also features fellow shapeshifting rapper Vince Staples, smooth singer Kali Uchis and up-and-coming hip-hop artist Teezo Touchdown.
Tyler, The Creator recently released his new album Call Me If You Get Lost, a return to a slightly more straightforward Neptunes-inspired hip-hop sound after two conceptual pop excursions, Flower Boy and Igor.
It was on the 2019 tour for that last album when the former Odd Future star ascended to arena-headlining status. Despite the pandemic, he’s keeping up that momentum. He just played a headlining set at Chicago’s Lollapalooza festival, and if you weren’t in that anxiety-inducing crowd of 300,000, you can watch the whole thing on YouTube:
Tickets go on sale Friday, August 6, at 10 am at callmeifyougetlost.com. Prices are TBA.
March 11, 2022, will mark two years since the day the NBA season was suspended due to COVID, which is often considered the day the pandemic era started. Not that that’s an anniversary you’ll necessarily want to celebrate, but if we can safely get together at the local basketball arena to watch a Tyler, The Creator show, it’s definitely a good sign.
The Toronto Raptors haven’t been able to play at home at Scotiabank Arena since that NBA suspension, but the arena is getting booked again. Ricky Gervais will be there on December 17, 2021. The Weeknd is there February 1 and 2, 2022. Justin Bieber plays there on March 25. And now that the Blue Jays have returned to the Rogers Centre, we have our fingers crossed we can catch some Raptors and Leafs games at their venue next season.
In the meantime, here’s Tyler.
