BURNA BOY ANNOUNCES I TOLD THEM… TOUR
Shortly after releasing the highly anticipated visual for fan favorite, “City Boys”, Nigerian artist Burna Boy has returned to announce his I Told Them… Tour. Produced by Live Nation, the 16-city tour kicks off on November 3 at BMO Stadium in Los Angeles, marking Burna Boy’s first ever Los Angeles stadium performance, then making stops across the U.S. in Houston, Chicago, Toronto and more before wrapping up in Atlanta at State Farm Arena on March 9.
This past July, the African Giant brought his GRAMMY® Award-winning music to a sold-out show at Citi Field in NYC, making him the first Nigerian artist to headline a stadium in the U.S commanding a crowd of more than 40,000 fans including celebrities like Busta Rhymes, SZA, NBA star Mo Bamba, NFL Star Larry Ogunjobi and British rapper Dave who also joined Burna on stage for a performance of their hit song “Location.”
This history-making performance shortly followed after his landmark London Stadium performance where he became the first African to headline a stadium in the U.K. and his Madison Square Garden performance where he became the first Nigerian artist to sell out MSG.
The global giant once again made history with his recently released album I TOLD THEM… after it debuted at #1 on the official U.K. Albums chart becoming the first international African artist to earn the title. The project also debuted at #1 in 55 countries on Apple Music and he went on to make his third appearance on the Billboard Hot 100 with the summer anthem “Talibans II” with Byron Messia. Most recently the album’s lead single “Sittin On Top Of The World” feat 21 Savage earned the #1 spot on Rhythmic radio while Burna has just earned a whopping seven nominations at the 2023 BET Hip-Hop Awards including Hip-Hop Artist of the Year, Best Live Performer, Lyricist of the Year, Best Hip Hop Video, Best Collaboration, Song of the Year and Hustler of the Year.
