It's only March, but Donald Glover is already having a year that any entertainer would envy.
Live Nation announced Monday that Childish Gambino, his crooning alter ego, will come to American Airlines Center on Sept. 23 on his North American tour.
That's great news for fans. And it adds to his 2018 ledger: The long-awaited second season of his Golden Globe and Emmy award-winning TV show, Atlanta, kicked off March 1. He won a Grammy in January for best traditional R&B performance for "Redbone" after getting 5 nominations that included album of the year for Awaken, My Love. His turn as Lando Calrissian was one of the most talked about parts of the trailer for the May 25 Solo: A Star Wars Story. Oh, and he performed "Terrified" on the Grammy awards show with JD McCrary, the young Simba to his older, wiser one in the 2019 Lion King?
Tickets go on sale Friday, March 9, for the show that will also feature Rae Sremmurd.
