Lil Durk announces colossal 2022 US tour

by Ricardo Johnson

Lil Durk has announced a run of US tour dates in support of his forthcoming seventh album, ‘7220’.

The 17-date tour, announced overnight (January 12), kicks off in Phoenix, Arizona, at the Federal Theatre on April 8, before the Chicago artist traverses the country and wraps up for a hometown show at Chicago’s United Center on May 2.

Though a release date for Lil Durk’s new studio effort is yet to be announced, ‘7220’ will drop sometime this year, marking the follow-up to 2020’s ‘The Voice’. A largely collaborative album, the 16-track project featured guest stints from the likes of Young Thug, 6lack and more.

Last year, Lil Durk – real name Durk Banks – released ‘The Voice Of Heroes’, a collaboration with Lil Baby. In a three-star review, NME said the release was “technically accomplished” but noted how “[on] their solo projects we’ve seen the two explore emotions and musical range to make knockout hits”.
