(New York, NY – September 17, 2014) Today, Bay Area rapper G-Eazy announced his highly anticipated return to the road with the “From The Bay To The Universe Tour.” The Oakland emcee, who was recently named one of USA Today’s hottest college acts, will be stopping in 31 cities along with Bay Area luminary E-40 as well as IAMSU! and Jay Ant.
Fittingly, the tour will start and end in California, making stops in major metropolitan markets such as Atlanta, Chicago, Houston and Las Vegas. G-Eazy is set to perform hits off his lauded album These Things Happen such as “I Mean It,” “Lost,” “Tumblr Girls” as well as “Far Alone” featuring E-40 and Jay Ant. Bay Area legend E-40 will surely bring out his hyphy classics such as “Tell Me When To Go” and “Rapper’s Ball,” while IAMSU! is likely to perform his verses from radio hits “Function,” “Gas Pedal” and “Only That Real.” Tickets for “The Bay To The Universe Tour” go on sale September 19 at 10:00 a.m. local time, with members of G-Eazy’s fan club and those wishing to purchase VIP tickets having presale access today at noon local time, and can be purchased here: www.g-eazy.com
The “From the Bay to the Universe Tour” comes off a stellar summer for G-Eazy, from the release of These Things Happen, his first European tour, dates on the “Drake vs.Wayne Tour” and his late night TV debut on Late Night With Seth Meyers. After MTV dubbed “Far Alone” their 2014 “summer jam” and G-Eazy as their “Artist to Watch”, the Oakland Tribune’s declaration that G-Eazy’s buzz is “deafening” has become an understatement. G-Eazy’s album These Things Happen has surpassed 100,000 copies sold and 35 million Spotify streams after debuting on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop and Top Rap Albums Charts at #1, while garnering the #3 position on both the Billboard 200 and Top Digital Albums Chart. G-Eazy’s accomplishments have not gone unnoticed, earning praise from The New York Times, Pitchfork and VIBE, who noted G-Eazy’s method for success in their review of These Things Happen, stating: “Sans radio single, sans famous rapper cosign, sans beats from super producers, the Bay Area-native has leveraged blog exposure, social media reach and a relentless touring schedule into a sizeable fan base.”
