J Cole Announces His Biggest, Most Ambitious Tour Yet (See Dates)

57 dates across the US, Canada, Europe and Australia.  J Cole’s ‘4 Your Eyez Only’ tour could be his greatest tour yet.

J Cole’s latest album went platinum.  But the real money comes from touring.  So before the excitement dies down, J Cole has announced an ambitious trek spanning three continents.  And those are just the dates that have been confirmed.

As of now, the itinerary hits over a dozen countries.  That includes the US, Canada, England, Ireland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, France, Switzerland, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, and the Netherlands.

Many of those dates will sell out, leading to extra shows at nearby venues.  Whether J. Cole will spring any surprise $1 shows remains to be seen.

The journey starts with some low-key dates before going big.  The first show happens at Charleston’s The Music Farm.  After a dozen smaller shows, the 4 Your Eyez Only roadshow hits some serious arenas.  And, major cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, DC, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Detroit, Toronto, Seattle, Boston, and New York (see the itinerary below).

Cole then tackles three Texas cities in the dead of August — Houston, Austin, and Dallas — before a September break.  After that, the J Cole caravan crosses the Atlantic to play some European dates.  Eventually, the European jaunt spread to Australia and New Zealand before calling it quits.

Here’s the complete itinerary.  We’ll add, remove, and update as the schedule changes.

J. Cole Announces 4 Your Eyez Only Tour

Last October, J. Cole said that his performance at The Meadows festival would be his “last show, for a very long time.” He exaggerated a bit: The double-platinum, no-feature rapper performed at a pro-Hillary Clinton concert the next month, and this summer, he’s going back on tour to support his latest album 4 Your Eyes Only. J. Cole announced over 50 dates that will take him from South Carolina to Australia. He’ll be touring from June through the end of the year.
