Kendrick Lamar announced an upcoming concert tour today, dubbed the first annual “Kunta’s Groove Sessions,” and at the moment, there’s not much more to know about it beyond the information on the poster above.

Lamar posted the photo on Instagram earlier today with the caption “8 cities. 8 nights, 8 intimate shows,” but dates and locations have yet to be revealed, although there should be plenty of “MUSIC! DANCE! PERFORMANCE! & MORE!” at each stop.

What we do know apart from the tour is that on October 20, Lamar will perform with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, and he has other October and November shows coming up in New York, Columbus, OH, Chicago and Los Angeles.
