Big Boi

Two years since last hitting the road, Big Boi has announced a 45-city tour set to kick off in Georgia on April 18th before wrapping in Boston on June 19th, according to Rolling Stone. The tour is in support of the rapper’s experimental sophomore solo album, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors, released December 11, 2012 via Purple Ribbon Records and Def Jam Recordings.

Killer Mike, who appeared on the Vicious Lies… track “Thom Pettie,” will be providing support for the “Shoes For Running” tour, and according to Big Boi, the two will perform together during the main set each night. The tour will be stopping by LA on May 18th for a show at House of Blues, but seeing as how the two days before that show are not currently booked, I wouldn’t be surprised in another LA date (or two!) get added to the roster.
