After revealing plans to release his next album, NF, whose full name is Nathan Feuerstein, has officially announced he will embark on a massive 2023 arena tour. 

Taking to Facebook, the Michigan-born rapper and producer shared an image, which included the full list of tour dates for his upcoming run dubbed the Hope tour, in support of his upcoming fifth studio album of the same name.

The 47-date trek kicks off on Wednesday (July 12) at the Schottenstein Center in Columbus, OH, and will conclude on Sunday (Oct 15) at the Eventim Apollo in London, UK.

The tour will find NF crossing through North America, Canada, Europe, and the U.K.

Cordae (formerly YBN Cordaeand Entendre), an American rapper, who is known for Gold-certified songs like “Kung Fu,” “Have Mercy,” and “RNP,” will provide support for the North American Leg of the tour with the two working their way from the East Coast to the southern region of the country, visiting cities like Nashville, Tenn., Orlando, Fl., and Duluth, GA. From there, they’ll head west, making stops in San Francisco, CA, Seattle, WA, and Denver, CO, before wrapping up shows with the Canada leg of the trek.

Europe and U.K. tour dates, meanwhile, begin Sept. 23 at the Fabrique in Milan.

Tickets for the North American leg of the Hope Tour officially go on sale to the general public on Friday (April 7) at 10:00 a.m. local time. Additionally, fans can sign up for the Verified Fan presale HERE up until Sunday (April 2) at 11:59 p.m. ET. 

The Tour Comes In Support Of His New Album, HOPE

NF’s upcoming Hope tour and album announcements follow the release of songs – “Motto” and “Hope” – the latter of which is the title track for the album.

“Motto” dropped with an accompanying music video on March 10 and rose to the No. 2 spot on Billboard’s Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart. Co-written and co-produced alongside Tommee Profitt, the track finds NF reflecting on the choices he made throughout his musical journey as he looks back at what might have been had he not walked his own path and been resistant to the Hollywood lifestyle and celebrity culture. 

I could write a record full of radio songs / Do a bunch of features that my label would love / Do a bunch of features that I don’t even like / Just to build up the hype, yeah/ I could sell my house and move out to L.A. / Get inside of rooms with the biggest of names / Hire fifty people just to give me advice on the way I should write / Oh, God,” NF sings in the opening lines of the track.

Yeah, sounds like a nightmare if you ask me / Yeah, went from my bedroom to the big leagues / You know how many times that I was told things wouldn’t work? / But worked out, havin’ cold feet,” he continues. “Didn’t keep mе from success, but delayed it somе / I used to be the guy who’d kill to get a number one / I had to hear, “that song’s a hit” before I thought it was / But nowadays, I don’t really give a— (What).” 

“Hope,” meanwhile, finds NF facing his demons head-on as he fights to maintain the best version of himself after finding his faith and becoming a father. 

I done did things that I regret / I done said things I can’t take back / Was a lost soul at a crossroad who had no hope, but I changed that / I spent years of my life holdin’ on to things I never should’ve kept, full of hatred / Years of my life carryin’ a lot of baggage that I should’ve walked away from,” NF raps the first part of the song.

HOPE, which will follow 2019’s platinum-selling The Search and 2021’s CLOUDS (THE MIXTAPE), is due out Friday (April 7).
