The Monster Energy Outbreak Tour is returning to celebrate its eighth installment this year with a new face headlining the upcoming jaunt: Smokepurpp.

The Florida rapper will embark upon the five-week tour starting this April in his home state, and then journey to major cities across the U.S including Atlanta, New York, Philadelphia and more. Smokepurpp is also set to perform at Rolling Loud 2018 at the beginning of May before closing out his tour with a few dates in Texas. 

The Monster Energy Outbreak Tour was designed to give up-and-coming artists a platform to "reach new heights." Purpp will join rappers like 21 Savage, Logic, and Post Malone, who previously headlined their own Monster Energy Outbreak Tour.

"As with past Outbreak headliners, we continuously strive to showcase not only emerging artists coming into their own but artists that display that rare ability to reshape pop culture through music," says Outbreak tour founder Steve Glazer. "This year will be no exception, as we're thrilled to announce Smokepurpp."
