Rock took most of last year off to work on his new album, but let’s face it – he deserved a break. Since 1998, the rapper/rocker/country singer had been on the road non-stop.

With nearly three months’ worth of arena dates already announced and more forthcoming, it looks like Rock is back to his old ways. The dates posted so far cover the Midwest and South, but Rock’s handlers promise this will be a “major North American tour.”

Does this mean we can assume he’s going to give equal time to the rest of the continent? Probably.
