Last year, Lil Nas X released his debut LP, Montero, which birthed two chart-topping singles and proved there's a lot more to him than "Old Town Road." We named it one of the 30 best rap albums of 2021, writing:

At this point, it's probably more accurate to call Lil Nas X a pop singer than a rapper, but whatever genre you call it, Montero is one of the year's biggest triumphs and biggest surprises. Lil Nas X seemed destined to go down as a one hit wonder after following his viral chart-topper "Old Town Road" with the disappointing 7 EP, but Montero signified a fresh start. Working almost entirely with production duo Take A Daytrip, Lil Nas X came up with a sound that exists somewhere between pop and rap, is absurdly catchy, and doesn't really sound like anybody else in the world. Sometimes the album acknowledges the critics who doubted him ("One of Me"), but mostly it just laughs in the faces of those critics with an onslaught of some of the year's most effortlessly catchy songs.

Now he's announced his first-ever tour, the 'Long Live Montero' tour, which begins in Detroit in September and runs through October in North America, with European shows following in November. See all dates below.

The tour includes an NYC show at Radio City Music Hall on September 20. Tickets to all dates go on sale Friday, April 29 at 10 AM local, with a Cash App presale beginning Wednesday, April 27 at 10 AM.
