BET Award-winning rapper Future has plotted a North American tour to launch in early 2016. According to the official announcement released on Dec. 9, the concert venture, dubbed The Purple Reign Tour, will kick off on Feb. 17 from the Orpheum Theatre in Madison, Wis. Over the course of the next month, Future will headline venues in at least 21 additional cities, including Detroit (Feb. 19), New York (Feb. 27), Raleigh, N.C. (March 2), San Antonio (March 10), New Orleans (March 12), Denver (March 15), and Los Angeles (March 18), as well as many other cities along the way. The performer will also make a special hometown stop on March 4 to headline the Tabernacle. Ty Dolla Sign will be Future’s special guest for most of the tour.
The 2016 Future tour comes after a very successful year for the Atlanta-based rap star. In summer 2015, Future earned his first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with his third studio album, “DS2.” He also charted a second No. 1 later in the year when he released the collaborative mixtape “What a Time to Be Alive” with Drake.

ABOUT THE CLASS:
Rooted in improv techniques by Spolin, Johnstone, along with live composition, our method focuses on collective success, telling the richest story, and tapping into the player’s full instrument. Our work surpasses conventional notions of what improv looks like by bolstering the talents of the people in the room, exploring pan-disciplinary collaboration, learning to laugh at ourselves, searching for the real in the absurd, and celebrating the “strong and wrong.” With over 20 years of teaching experience, the Captains of LoM will take your training to the next dimension.
All disciplines and levels are welcome.
