evenko and Live Nation present CHANCE THE RAPPER on November 7 at the Bell Centre

Today Chance The Rapper announced his highly-anticipated return to the road with The Big Day, touching down in cities across North America this fall. The tour reveal follows the long-awaited release of his debut studio album, The Big Day, out last Friday. Please see tour itinerary below.

The innovative GRAMMY award-winner will kick off the 35-stop tour on September 14th in San Francisco, CA and visit Los Angeles, Philadelphia, New York City, Houston and more before wrapping November 10th in Miami, FL.

A limited number of LaneOne Premium Packages will also be available, including GA First On Floor access, amazing reserved seats, transportation, preferred entrance and more.  Check LaneOne for details.

Chance’s the Rapper’s debut album, aptly titled “The Big Day,” perfectly encapsulates the magnitude of his first for sale offering and the marriage to the love of his life. Fresh off of the release of his mixtape trilogy to streaming services, “The Big Day” is a landmark progression for Chicago’s hometown hero. Inspired by all of the different emotions he felt on his wedding day, the album serves as a reminder of Chance’s importance and relevance to the canon of contemporary music. With “The Big Day,” Chance takes cues from the rawness of 10 Day, the lyrical prowess of Acid Rap, and the wide-eyed optimism of Coloring Book to create his most dynamic body of work to date. Chance’s debut album, The Big Day, is finally here.

CHEECH & CHONG ANNOUNCE O CANNABIS TOUR

evenko, Live Nation and Paul Mercs present CHEECH & CHONG on September 23 at Théâtre Maisonneuve, Place des Arts.

Iconic comedy duo Cheech & Chong defined an era with their hilariously irreverent, satirical, counter-culture comedy routines. Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong have been entertaining fans for more than four decades and are ready to celebrate recent updates to Canadian legislation with their new O Cannabis Tour which will hit 14 markets across the country this fall.

Tickets for the O Cannabis Tour will go on sale to the general public on Friday, April 26 at 10am local time at www.evenko.ca.

With nine albums released from 1972 through 1985, Cheech and Chong were nominated for four Grammy Awards, winning the Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album with their third album, Los Cochinos, released in 1973. Big Bambu, their second album, was the biggest selling comedy record of all time in 1972 and remained so for many years. Their stunningly successful comedy streak transitioned to film in 1978 with their first movie, “Up In Smoke,” the highest grossing comedy of 1978, topping $100 million at the box office. Cheech and Chong co-wrote and starred in a total of eight feature films together, all directed by Chong.

Cheech Marin is a paradox in the world of entertainment. Cheech is an actor, director, writer, musician, art collector, and humanitarian, a man who has enough talent, humor, and intelligence to do just about anything. He is truly a multi-generational star, having starred in films like Born In East L.A. and Tin Cup, and on televisions shows like Nash Bridges and Jane The Virgin.

Tommy Chong began his entertainment career as a musician in a Canadian-based rythm and blues band. Eventually, he landed a gig with the “Vancouvers” and co-wrote the band’s 1960s hit, “Does Your Mama Know About Me.” Chong then turned towards the life of an actor and appeared in several films including National Lampoon’s Senior Trip. Chong has also starred, most notably, on “That 70’s Show,” and guest starred on “Dharma & Greg” and “The George Lopez Show.”

The Houston rapper’s live shows have become the stuff of a legend with Billboard writing, “Travis Scott’s penchant for raging, off-the-wall live shows have become an essential part of his career.”  Speaking about the early shows of the first leg of the “ASTROWORLD: WISH YOU WERE HERE” tour, Complex says, “this show is worth whatever effort you have to put forth to catch it.”
