Juice WRLD’S A Death Race For Love Tour, with co-host Ski Mask The Slump God and Lyrical Lemonade All-Stars, will be making a stop at Silverstein Eye Centers Arena on Sunday, June 2.
Following the release of his new single, “Robbery,” and accompanying Cole Bennett video, Chicago artist Juice WRLD has announced his upcoming North American tour.
Born Jarad Higgins, Juice WRLD got his start by shunning major streaming services and building a major following on Soundcloud. Within weeks of the February 2018 premiere of his video for “All Girls Are the Same,” he scored a deal with Interscope Records.
Soon after the signing, Juice WRLD made his debut with Goodbye & Good Riddance and drew critical acclaim from the likes of The New York Times, who called it “one of the year’s most effective hip-hop releases.”
Juice WRLD also completed his sold-out, debut headlining tour of North America in 2018 and is set to make his Coachella debut this year.
