Rod Wave is gearing up to head out on tour in support of his fifth studio album, “Nostalgia,” which was released on Friday (September 15).

The North Carolina native is set to bring Ari Lennox, Toosii, G Herbo, and Eelmatic.

The North American tour kicks off on October 19. The cross-country trek will start at Lincoln, Nebraska’s Pinnacle Bank Arena, before making a total of 30 stops in cities including Louisville, Detroit, Toronto, Boston, Brooklyn, Charlotte, Nashville, Los Angeles, Oakland, San Diego, Houston and Atlanta, among others. The tour will conclude on December 18 at the Vystar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida.

“I feel like on this album, I was able to spread my emotions around, and I have more time just to touch bases on different kind of points of views on different subjects,” shared the 25-year-old with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1 of “Nostalgia.”

“I turn it to a butterfly. I’m full-grown on this one. You know what I’m saying? Like I said in the song, right now, while I’m doing shows and doing platinum albums, it’s cool, but I remember once upon a time, it was crazy for me to be saying, I’m going to be a rapper, and this why I’m investing all my time and all my money and all my whole life into losing relationships and just a lot of stuff. And it seemed crazy to people at the time, but now they understand it.”

He continued to detail, “This album and every album I’ve ever put out, I just kind of be just me and the engineer in a hotel room or at the house or you know what I’m saying, and somewhere.”

Rod Wave’s latest album features 18 tracks, with just two features from 21 Savage and Sadie Jean. The record is projected to go #1, with Hits Daily Double predicting that the project will move between 130,000 to 140,000 album-equivalent units in its first week.

Meanwhile, Lennox released her sophomore LP, “age/sex/location,” in 2022. Subsequently, she toured 27 dates in January with Alex Vaughn. The project boasted features from Lucky Daye, Chlöe, and Summer Walker while records such as “Hoodie” and “Pressure” rose to acclaim.
