Lil Nas X is finally taking his smash debut album, Montero, on the road.

The artist shared the news via his social media, captioning the trailer for the tour:

“i’m having my very first tour. and all of u better come or i will cry on instagram live.”

The trailer for the trek, which is dubbed the Long Live Montero Tour, features highlights from the last few years of the singer’s career.

“Hello, I am Montero, and I welcome you to my event,” the rapper’s voice proclaims in the clip, before throwing in one of his classic jokey comments. “My world. My universe. Everyone’s allowed — except gay people. I am Lil Nas X, and I present to you my first tour.”

The “Long Live Montero Tour” begins with a 14-date North American leg, kicking off in Detroit on September 6th. Lil Nas X is also scheduled to make stops in Chicago, Toronto, Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Nashville, Miami, and Los Angeles, among other cities, before wrapping up the leg in San Francisco on October 23rd. 

The European leg of the tour, which will begin on November 8 with a show in Amsterdam, will conclude on November 17 in Barcelona.

Lil Nas X rose to prominence with the release of his country rap single “Old Town Road”, which first achieved viral popularity in early 2019 before climbing music charts internationally and becoming diamond certified by November of that same year. “Old Town Road” spent 19 weeks atop the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, becoming the longest-running number-one song since the chart debuted in 1958. 

Following the success of “Old Town Road”, Lil Nas X released his debut extended play, titled 7, which produced two further singles⁠, with “Panini” and “Rodeo” (featuring Cardi B or Nas). His debut studio album, Montero arrived last September, featuring the chart-topping singles “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)” and “Industry Baby” (with Jack Harlow).
