Today, chart-topping, multi-Platinum rapper/producer NF announced the second leg of the HOPE TOUR, spanning the U.S. and Australia/New Zealand, and produced by Live Nation. The tour begins at HBF Stadium in Perth on February 2, 2024 – the first of five Australian shows – and visits Spark Arena in Auckland, New Zealand on February 11. A series of 22 U.S. dates will follow, beginning with a May 8 show at Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, WI. The tour makes a stop at Detroit’s Little Caesars Arena in his home state of Michigan on May 14, then heads to the East Coast and southern states, wrapping up in California with shows at Viejas Arena in San Diego (June 6), the Kia Forum in Inglewood (June 7) and Golden 1 Center in Sacramento (June 8). See below for full itinerary.
Hailed by Billboard as “one of the world’s biggest rappers,” NF is one of the most consumed artists of our time, generating over 30 billion combined global streams worldwide and selling over half a million tickets to date. After his extensive 2023 North American tour, which sold over 250,000 tickets, NF embarked on a sold-out European tour, which concludes on October 15 at Eventim Apollo in London. Check out highlights from the 2023 HOPE Tour HERE.
NF is touring in support of HOPE – his third studio album to debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales, Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and Top Rap Albums charts. HOPE also topped the album charts in New Zealand, The Netherlands and Switzerland and took the No. 2 spot on the Billboard 200 as well as the album charts in Australia, the UK, Canada and Norway.
HOPE has amassed over one billion combined global streams to date. The title track was recently certified Gold by the RIAA – one of 23 new certifications. Earlier albums The Search and Perception, which topped the Billboard 200, are now certified 2x Platinum while the 2017 single “Let You Down” is 8x Platinum.
Clash Music praised HOPE as an “often thrilling return” and “perhaps his most personal document yet.” The album features guest appearances by Cordae on “CAREFUL” and Julia Michaels on “GONE.” The New York Times spotlighted “MOTTO,” and noted, “in his early career, NF sounded as if he was internalizing all the pressures of the world, but now he sounds free and calm, dismissing those same pressures with a shrug.” Praising the “soul-baring highlight” “HAPPY,” NME said, “he documents his ongoing mental health journey with brutal, utterly unbridled honesty.” As part of the “NME In Conversation” series, NF delves into a wide range of topics that include HOPE, fatherhood and collaborating with Julia Michaels.
