Here’s one of the better tours skipping around the country later this year: The Weeknd, Jhené Aiko, and Schoolboy Q will play four dates together in the fall. While they’re playing fast and loose with the term “tour,” if you happen to live around Brooklyn, Toronto, Los Angeles, or San Francisco, you can catch the trio on the “King of the Fall” tour performing “special one-night events.”
The poster for the show, featuring Mr. Abel Tesfaye of The Weeknd, and the four dates are below.
As for a status report on the three of them, they all have some new things cooking. The Weeknd just dropped the new track “Often”, and Aiko just leaked her new song “To Live and Die” which will most likely appear on her album Souled Out, due later this year.
As for Schoolboy Q, he’s got something cookin, but after escaping a shootout after a show, he’s still putting out great songs like “Banger (MOSHPIT)” and the video for “Studio.” He’ll most assuredly also appear on Kendrick Lamar’s next album, due out later this year.
