Spotify and Live Nation Urban announce additional dates to their RapCaviar concert series in Toronto, Ontario, and Dallas.
Pre-sale tickets are available to Spotify fans through the Spotify Fans First pre-sale and through Live Nation. General on-sale tickets will be available through Ticketmaster.com on Friday, Oct. 5.
The RapCaviar Live series was launched in August 2017 with Gucci Mane headlining their Atlanta show, and has since made stops in Toronto, Chicago, Charlotte, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., New York, and Houston. In light of Hurricane Harvey, Spotify and Live Nation Urban organized a week of charitable activities a week prior to the Houston show, to aid local communities affected by the natural disaster.
The concert series commenced in partnership with Spotify, known for one of its biggest playlists with over 10 million followers, RapCaviar. According to a Pollstar interview with Live Nation Urban President Shawn Gee in Mar. 2018, the series has also played other venues including “Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom with Lil Uzi Vert, Playboi Carti, and DJ Drama, and was sold out clean for weeks and probably could have sold another 4,000 tickets.” Other performers on the series include Cardi B, A$AP Mob, Dipset, Mike WiLL Made-It, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, Trae tha Truth, and others. As the first season of RapCaviar came to a close, Gee remarked, “It’s been really refreshing and very successful. It’s showing how two companies that operate in different areas can really come together and build culture.”
