Scenes from J. Coles KOD Tour with Young Thug, Jaden Smith and Earthgang

The world has been watching every since J. Cole announced actor, rapper, singer and songwriter Jaden Smith would join his highly anticipated North American KOD Tour as support, as well as Dreamville artist Earthgang and rapper Kill Edward. These new acts joined special guest Young Thug for one of the can’t miss tours of the year, which kicked off August 9 in Miami, FL.

In case you missed it in your city or won’t be able to catch the tour, here’s a peek at how it goes down on the KOD Tour!

Produced by Live Nation, the tour hit Atlanta, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Kansas City, MO and more, before wrapping in Boston, MA on October 10. See below for current remaining tour itinerary.

Tickets for the KOD tour are on sale to the general public at www.dreamville.com and LiveNation.com.

Released via Dreamville with distribution through Roc Nation/Interscope Records, KOD arrived on April 20 and debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, marking J. Cole’s fifth consecutive #1 on the chart. Along with scoring the biggest streaming week for an album so far in 2018, KOD has earned the third-biggest streaming week for an album in all of chart history.

Remaining J. Cole KOD Tour Dates:

Sep 23 – Columbus, OH – Schottenstein Center

Sep 25 – Buffalo, NY – KeyBank Center*

The fifth studio album from J. Cole, KOD follows his critically acclaimed, platinum-selling 2016 album 4 Your Eyez Only. In the week ending April 26, KOD sold 397k equivalent album units, while its songs amassed 322 million audio streams. That makes J. Cole only the third artist in history to surpass 300 million audio streams in its debut week—an achievement that’s especially remarkable considering that KOD only contains 12 songs.

Like all of J. Cole’s first four albums, it’s certified platinum.
