Grammy-winner Childish Gambino, also known as Donald Glover, is set to storm the stage in Atlanta's State Farm Arena on September 2 as part of his "The New World Tour" — marking his first performance in the city in half a decade. According to FOX 5 Atlanta, the multi-hyphenate talent's tour will also feature an updated version of his 2020 album "3.15.20," complete with two new ear-buzzing tracks, "Atavista" and "Human Sacrifice."

The tour is set to kick off in Oklahoma City at the Paycom Center on August 11 and will crisscross North America, making 33 stops before hopping overseas. Anticipation for Gambino's return is high, with fans eager to secure their tickets, which, as per the Tribune, went on sale today for the general public at 10 am PT through the tour's official website and Ticketmaster. For those flush with American Express plastic, a presale swooped in before the general scramble for tickets for select dates.

Listeners in North America are in for a double treat with opening performances by WILLOW, Willow Smith's musical persona, warming up audiences for Gambino's eclectic setlist. Crossing the pond, the Europe, U.K., and Australia legs of the tour promise Amaarae as the opening act, ensuring a full spectrum of musical bliss.

Not one to just hit the road, Glover has dropped a fresh album titled "Atavista," which revisits and revitalizes his earlier project "3.15.20." Featuring collaborations with artists like Young Nudy and Summer Walker, the album breathes new life into Gambino's music, reported the Tribune. A visual feast to complement the album release is the music video for “Little Foot Big Foot,” showcasing Quinta Brunson, under the experienced directorial eye of Hiro Murai, who recently worked on Glover's 2024 television series, “Mr & Mrs Smith.”

Glover's history of fusion and creativity across media continues to define his career, with his music intertwining with visual storytelling to create an immersive experience for his fans. Be it on screen or via the speakers, Glover's knack for compelling narratives runs unabated. The stage is set for an electrifying tour that is not just a series of concerts but a celebration of Gambino's expansive artistic vision.
