Atlanta rapper Russ announced the continuation of his North American trek with the “I See You Tour Part 2” earlier this year. The 13 new dates kicked off October 19, including a stop in San Antonio, before wrapping up November 15 in Seattle. This Halloween, the “Losin’ Control” singer will perform at the AT&T Center.

We usually don’t go into Wikipedia-type info when we talk about artists, but for how young this dude is, Russ has accomplished a lot. The hip-hop recording artist had breakout success over the past year with his debut album, There’s Really A Wolf, released in May 2017. Russ surpassed 1.1 billion audio streams in the U.S. in 2017, making him one of Nielsen Music’s 30 most streamed artists of the year. This placed him above a number of superstar acts, including Beyoncé, Coldplay and Childish Gambino. He’s racked up six sold-out tours, more than 676-million YouTube views, 10-million monthly listeners on Spotify and over 2 billion plays of his vast catalog, all sung word-for-word by his dedicated fan base at sold-out shows across the globe.

Kinda gnarly stuff, and if you haven’t made your Halloween plans yet, this probably will be a show you want to be at.

$39-$59.95, Wed Oct. 31, 9pm, AT&T Center, One AT&T Center Parkway,
