Childish Gambino and Vince Staples to tour together as “Vince Gambino” (okay, not really, but wouldn’t that be awesome?)

Childish Gambino and Vince Staples to tour together as "Vince Gambino" (okay, not really, but wouldn't that be awesome?)
Childish Gambino (a.k.a. Donald Glover) apparently doesn't think it'd be as awesome as I do.

Call me crazy, readers; but I’ve got a feeling there’s something big coming down the pipe soon from Donald “Childish Gambino” Glover! The American rapper hasn’t really toured since “going soul” on us back in late 2016 with the release of his third album, Awaken, My Love (naturally, I just assumed he’d gone the James Murphy route and retired — because, let’s face it: for most artists, three albums is fucking PLENTY.)

But then, all-a-sudden: BAM. Glover is back on the live scene like…I don’t know…some kind of…really, really passionate live performer! In fact, he already announced a string of dates in September with Rae Sremmurd, claiming there’d be some “new music” on offer.

And now, we get word that he’ll be heading right back onto the open road literally TWO DAYS LATER with none other than Vince “Big Fish” Staples. The pair’s shows together kick off on October 2 in San Jose, California and go on to include the other four cities that “really matter” as far as the United States government is secretly-concerned: L.A., Phoenix, Denver, and Nashville.

Check out the full listing of Childish Gambino dates with both Staples and Sremmurd, and re-familiarize yourself with his recent smooth-soul vocal sound down below. That way, you’ll be back up-to-speed by the time Glover likely completely flips your shit with an entirely new musical aesthetic this fall.
