Offset of Migos performs onstage at the STAPLES Center Concert Sponsored By Sprite during BET Experience at Staples Center on June 22, 2019 in Los Angeles.

After teaming up with his group Migos to perform at the iHeart Music Festival in September, Offset plans to venture back on stage, but this time solo, with his forthcoming performance Oct. 16 in Atlanta.

Teaming up with AXR + EXP for a live experience to help raise money for artists and creatives who have or are experiencing economic hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Offset looks to spread his altruism alongside several Atlanta newbies such as Duke Deuce and YRN Murk during his showcase.

“I get to perform for my fans again with my artists, Duke Deuce, YRN Murk, and YRN Mango live, on stage on my platform,” Offset tells Billboard exclusively.

Last month, Offset teamed up with Axis Replay to provide live and virtually streamed events for fans yearning for performances. “The AXR+EXP Concert Series will be the new standard for live and virtual performances,” said Axis Replay CEO, Allie Young in a statement last month. “Our company’s mission is to create experience-focused activations, and that has translated well into streamed productions. Being a part of the music, entertainment, gaming, and sports ecosystem, it made a lot of sense for us to leverage our experience and expertise to reconnect the industries that have been devastated by this pandemic.”

Fans attending the Oct. 16 show will have their temperatures checked before entry, and safety precautions as outlined by the CDC will be taken. The performance will also be livestreamed. Tickets can be purchased here.
