Brooklyn-bred artist Kota the Friend announced his headlining tour this fall – Kota the Friend Presents: Flowers For My Friends Tour. Produced by Live Nation, the 20-date run kicks off on Friday, October 20 in Pittsburgh, PA at Roxian Theatre, with several stops across major Canadian and U.S. cities including Atlanta, Los Angeles, Vancouver, and more before wrapping up shortly after Thanksgiving on Saturday, November 25 in New York at Irving Plaza.
The tour marks the multihyphenate’s first-ever headlining performance and affirms his staying power in today’s rap landscape. The tour announcement comes on the heels of Kota’s critically-acclaimed album, PROTEA, released June 30, 2023 via FLTBYS Music and Entertainment LLC & Venice Music. Spanning 16 tracks, the project received rave reviews from publications such as XXL, Wonderland, VIBE, and UPROXX to name a few. The latter dubbing PROTEA, “a break from the routines, it’s the splash of sunshine cascading through the window to remind us that there is more beyond the office, the struggle, the anxiety and depression of our modern times.”
Tickets will be available starting today! Additional presales will run throughout the week ahead of the general onsale beginning Friday, July 21 at 10AM local time at kotathefriendtour.com.
