Kendrick Lamar expands his tour, adds a Minnesota show

Kendrick Lamar will bring his DAMN. tour to St. Paul now.

Damn. This is some good news for Kendrick Lamar fans in Minnesota.

The rapper announced an expanded North American tour Monday – and St. Paul is on the list.

Lamar will perform at the Xcel Energy Center Saturday, Aug. 19 (with a gig in Chicago the next day, if you want to get ambitious and go for a back-to-back).

Tickets go on sale Saturday, May 20, at 10 a.m. local time – those will be at Ticketmaster. There's a presale for American Express members starting Thursday at 10 a.m. as well.

The full DAMN. tour kicks off July 12 in Phoenix and wraps Sept. 2 in Miami. YG and D.R.A.M. will open for Lamar, and the first leg of the tour also gets Travis Scott.
