Canadian rap star Tory Lanez last night wowed over 5,000 fans at 02 Academy Brixton and was joined on stage by R&B icon and hit maker Chris Brown.
Tory’s mini UK tour marks his triumphant return to the UK following a highly successful tour opening for none other than fellow Canadian icon, Drake, in 2019.
Lanez took his London fans on a journey through all of his hit singles last night, which saw Brown join on stage for the anthemic, ‘The Take’. The evening also witnessed memorable performances from opening acts, WSTRN and Melii.
The attention now turns to Tory’s next show, which will take place this evening (Tuesday December 7th) at Birmingham’s Forum and will come to a successful close at Manchester’s 02 Victoria Warehouse.
International chart-topping and Grammy Award-nominated artist Tory Lanez recently made
headlines confirming that an 80’s themed album entitled Alone At Prom would release in December 2021, and now the creator has blessed fans in the UK with his current UK tour.
Outside of music, Lanez has always been passionate about using his platform to give back to the community that he cares for, particularly those voices more silenced such as people of color, children and single mothers. Most recently, Lanez has traveled nationwide to continue to help out where he can, including heading to the Del Rio, Texas border in the USA to donate $50,000 worth of clothes and other essentials to Haitian migrants. This past September alone, he took to the city of Baltimore, Maryland , USA where he held a clothing drive giveaway for single mothers and children in need. Towards the middle of that month, the artist went back to California where he surprised 30+ families by making a $50,000 donation to go towards legal fees for loved ones working with Unite the People to free their loved ones, particularly men of color, from incarceration.
On the day of the launch of Lanez’s latest NFT project ‘When it’s Dark’ this summer, the rapper posted a video to Twitter noting that the album sold one million copies in under a minute and that one of his NFTs had already been flipped for $50,000. All 1 million available copies of the album sold out in 60 seconds, the first artist in history to reach this amazing milestone.
