Put you in a mansion
Music superstar T-Pain will come to Houston this summer as part of Mansion In Wiscansin Party Tour. He’s performing at downtown’s 713 Music Hall on Wednesday, May 29, and South Side Ballroom in Dallas on Thursday, May 30. Special guests include LaRussell, NandoSTL, and Young Ca$h.
This summer’s tour takes its name from the now iconic lyric “Put you in a mansion, somewhere in Wiscansin” from his 2008 hit “Can’t Believe It.” The announcement follows what can only be described as one helluva winter.
Last December, the Grammy-winning artist, producer, songwriter, entrepreneur, and global cultural icon dropped On Top of the Covers (Live from the Sun Rose), a concert film/album which has him covering such artists as Journey, Luther Vandross, and Black Sabbath. (That last one had former Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne giving him a shout-out on social media.) The film has already gotten nearly 3 million views on YouTube.
Recipient of the 2023 Soul Train Legend Award, T-Pain recently teamed with Snoop Dogg on “That’s How We Ballin”, announced Bluez Brothaz, his new duo project with Young Ca$h, and just released the new single “Dreaming.” And it was announced that he will be the newest Artist in Residence at Zouk Nightclub and Ayu Dayclub at Resorts World Las Vegas this spring.
Since emerging in 2004, the Tallahassee trailblazer has sold over 50 million singles, accumulated billions of streams, racked up 10 iconic #1s on the Billboard Hot 100 and captivated the world with his charismatic live performances, earning a reputation as a global phenomenon. His influence has transcended generations in music and more; the iconic artist won the first season of Fox’s The Masked Singer after stunning audiences with his soulful, natural voice, and he boasts one of the most-watched Tiny Desk sessions and Hot Ones interviews of all time. He shines as a Twitch phenomenon and uber popular streamer, head of his own Nappy Boy Entertainment and Nappy Boy Automotive, podcast host, director and editor, expert drift driver, actor, author, HelloFresh spokesperson and his collaboration with Spicewalla has sold out time and time again.
T-Pain artist presale is underway followed by a general on-sale this Friday, February 23, at 10 am. For more info, go to T-Pain’s website
