2018 is set to get off on the right foot, as Odd Future’s Tyler The Creator has announced his forthcoming 23-city headlining tour. With some amazing support from Vince Staples and Taco, this is not a tour that you’ll want to miss.
The 2018 tour is currently scheduled to kick off on January 26th in Vancouver, and will make stops in Chicago, San Diego, Toronto, Atlanta, New York and many more, until the tour concludes on March 4th at Milwaukee’s infamous Eagles Ballroom (The Rave). Pre-sale for the tour will be available this Thursday, November 16th from 10:00 (local). General on-sale will start on Friday, November 17th, and you can get your tickets here.
Check out Tyler and Vince’s full list of tour dates below.
If you haven’t checked out The Internet’s new album, Ego Death, do yourself a favor and give it a listen (and give our review a read as well). And in support of their new LP, the group will be traveling the country on a massive tour this fall. Kicking off at the El Rey in Los Angeles, The Internet will be hitting stops in Chicago, DC, New York, Canada, and more, until they close their tour off at Odd Future and Tyler The Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival this October. If you are a fan of their album, which you should be, you will definitely want to get your tickets now!
Before he brought his energetic performance to the Lollapalooza stage this past weekend, Odd Future’s Tyler the Creator performed a more intimate (but equally wild) set at the Concord Music Hall for an Official Afterparty of Lollapalooza 2015. With an opening performance from the uber talented band, BADBADNOTGOOD, Tyler (alongside Taco and Jasper) gave the Windy City fan’s their money’s worth. Not only did Tyler perform a number of tracks from his latest LP Cherry Bomb, but he performed a number of mixtape records for his day one fans. And if you missed out, don’t worry! Tyler will be back in Chicago with A$AP Rocky in September at the Aragon Ballroom (get your tickets Friday).

Earlier today, Odd Future’s Mike G (one of the group’s most underrated members) shared a old collaboration with fellow OFWGKTA member Earl Sweatshirt. What’s most interesting about this record, is that the track dates back all the way to 2009. You can noticeably tell the difference in the young rappers’ voices but the track, titled ‘FUK IT’, is still fire. We wonder what other Odd Future unreleased tracks are out there.
Don’t worry, Odd Future didn’t actually break up (well not really), and here is some new OFWGKTA for you, this time from Hodgy Beats. The new autotuned record, titled ‘ISWEARHB’ has an epic team of producers, with production from Young Chop, Metro Boomin and Sonny Digital. Check it out for yourself, you don’t need the producer tags and drops to tell that three of music’s hottest producers played a role in this beat.
“Although its no more, those 7 letters are forever,” tweet Odd Future’s Tyler the Creator tonight. Is Odd Future (“OFWKTA”), which consists of Tyler the Creator, Frank Ocean, Earl Sweatshirt, Hodgy Beats, Domo Genesis, Mike G, Taco and many more, really done? As suggested by Tyler’s tweet, it must be. If so though, what exactly does that mean? Odd Future isn’t like One Direction, as in it’s not a group/bank that always and only travels together. It’s a collective of artists, each with their own visions and specific styles. Tyler the Creator does his thing. Frank Ocean does his thing. Earl Sweatshirt does his thing. And the rest of Odd Future does their thing as well. So while we don’t exactly know what the end of OFWGKTA means, this certainly wasn’t a good tweet to read!
A new surprise album from Odd Future’s Earl Sweatshirt wasn’t enough for you? Well don’t worry because Earl has given fans even more music, this time by dropping a 10-minute long track/EP, titled ‘solace’. Sweatshirt spoke about solace in an interview with NPR and said the project was for his mother. In the YouTube description, Earl describes the track/EP as “music from when i hit the bottom and found something.” Do yourself a favor and check it out now!
Listen to ‘solace’ below and check out our recent photos from Earl’s “Not Redy 2 Leave” tour.
