Kendrick Lamar is headed to Detroit this summer

On the same day as his long-anticipated new album “Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers” hits streaming services, Kendrick Lamar has announced a new tour, which includes a summer date with Detroit.

The Compton rapper and celebrated wordsmith will perform at Little Caesars Arena on Aug. 14, promoters announced Friday, part of his 38-city “Big Steppers” North American tour.

Tickets for the show go on sale at 10 am May 20 via Ticketmaster channels. Pre-sales for Cash App customers start at 10 am May 19.

Las Vegas rapper Baby Keem — whose March concert at Saint Andrews Hall in Detroit resulted in the venue’s floor needing to be replaced — will open.

If Aug. 14 sounds familiar on the concert calendar, that’s because Metro Detroit concertgoers face a tough choice that night: it’s the same date as the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Strokes will perform just a few hundred yards away at Comerica Park. Plan accordingly.
