Sure he’s had some headlining shows, but the Oct. 30 through Dec. 19 “Void Tour” is the first journey that has the Los Angeles native at the top of the ticket. Featuring a brand new stage production and including many special guests, Grime’s adventure begins in Philadelphia and covers plenty of ground before returning to the East Coast for its New York City wrap-up.

Having released several EPs during the last three years, Grime will be supporting his debut album scheduled to drop in autumn on WeDidIt Records. The long player’s first single, “Core,” arrived last week.
