Adekunle Gold announces “Catch Me If You Can” North America Tour

International Afropop sensation Adekunle Gold has announced the Catch Me If You Can – The Tour. Produced by Live Nation and Duke Concept, Adekunle Gold’s 19-city tour kicks off on Thursday, June 2nd at Big Night Live in Boston, MA, making stops across the U.S. and Canada in New York, Toronto, Denver and more before wrapping up in Edmonton, BC at Union Hall on Friday, July 8th.

The tour’s announcement follows up the 2022 release of his ‘Catch Me If You Can’ LP which includes collaborations with an array of world-class talent including Ty Dolla $ign, Stefflon Don, Fatoumata Diawara and Fousheé and the hit singles ‘It Is What It Is’, ‘Sinner’ ft Lucky Daye and ‘High’ ft Davido. The new project showcases more of Adekunle Gold’s signature, one-of-a-kind combination of addictive melodies and razor sharp lyricism that has earned him a legion of fans across the world and 100s of millions of global streams.

Nigerian born and bred, Adekunle Gold is one of the most recognizable and exciting pioneers of the vibrant Afropop genre, currently dominating airwaves across the globe – mixing Afrobeat with Pop, Hip-Hop and R&B influences, he is one of the most elegant and innovative artists to come out of Africa.

Since releasing his first single “Sade,” a love song which sampled instrumentals from One Direction’s “Story of My Life,” Adekunle has gone on to release four albums – including Gold which debuted at #7 on the Billboard World Albums Chart, About 30 which was shortlisted for the GRAMMY Best World Album, whilst AfroPop Vol 1 amassed over 228 million streams and included the global hit records “Okay” and “Something Different.”
