*UPDATE: Kendrick Lamar took to Instagram today (October 5) to announced an intimate 8-stop tour for To Pimp A Butterfly called the “1st Annual” Kunta’s Groove Sessions. No dates have been announced yet, but they’re coming soon. 


Ever since the release of his highly lauded sophomore album To Pimp A Butterfly last March, fans have been pressuring Kendrick Lamar to tour the album. He’s been inching out of his comfort zone by performing select songs from the album at festivals over the summer, but he’s taking it tot he next level with help from the National Symphony Orchestra.

Billboard reports that K.Dot will be playing a special live show in Washington D.C. on October 20, no doubt including cuts from Butterfly, backed by the 96-piece orchestra. Tickets for this one-night only even start at $35 and go on sale Wednesday (September 30). Where the hell do we sign?
