Thundercat will join Paak on all of the shows, while other shows will include performers like Earl Sweatshirt, Noname, Thundercat, Mac DeMarco, and Jessie Reyez. See the flyer below. General public tickets go on sale Tuesday, March 5 at 10am. Paak's summer tour dates will follow his ongoing, previously announced tour.

Ventura arrives after Paak's album Oxnard, which was released only a few months ago. The non-album single "Bubblin" recently took home a Grammy for Best Rap Performance.

Here's Paak's press statement on the new album:

"Growing up in Oxnard gave me the grit and the church to find this voice of mine. One town over I went further and found my depth. The duality of each place inspired me greatly and from that I made two albums at the exact same time but held one back because that would have been too many songs to perform live for you all! I like ending things on an even number so welcome to 'Ventura'"
