Bryson Tiller is getting back on the road feeling better than ever. Announcing his first tour in nearly six years, the Trapsoul icon’s “Back And I’m Better Tour” looks to be a return to form for Tiller.
The Louisville native last toured in promotion of his sophomore studio album, True to Self, in 2017. Slated to perform in 25 cities over two months, the nationwide trek begins on May 4 in San Diego, California, and ends on June 12 in Seattle, Washington. “It’s simple, we back!” he wrote on Instagram. “Taking a trip to the past and giving y’all a glimpse of the future. 5 whole years without touring, Time really does fly… See y’all soon!”
Despite Tiller’s long-teased album Serenity never fully coming to fruition, there’s hope that a new album — whether it be Serenity or not — will release as the tour approaches. The singer-rapper will likely configure setlists from each of his sonic eras: Trapsoul (2015), True to Self (2017) and ANNIVERSARY (2020).
It’s been three years since Tiller shared his third studio album ANNIVERSARY — the long-awaited B-side to his iconic 2015 debut — which he was unable to tour in 2020 due to pandemic lockdowns. However, he partnered with MomentHouse in March 2021 to curate a virtual concert experience for the record entitled the “Trapsoul Series.” A play on his moniker Penn Griffey — a la Mariners’ legend Ken Griffey Jr. — a Wheaties cover, Big League Chew and ballplayer cards proved Tiller took his time with the concept, creating an unforgettable live experience for fans in the comfort of their homes.
The singer hasn’t been without new music since he dropped ANNIVERSARY either, sharing a 2021 holiday album A Different Christmas, a Halloween-themed sequel to Killer Instinct and singles including “Outside” and “Gotta Move On” with Diddy — both of which dropped in the Fall of 2022. Previously revealing that he and Drake have more heat in the vault, 2023 is poised to be Tiller’s year. “Hate it or love it, the underdog gonna drop.”
