Future and Ty Dolla $ign will play the Fox Theatre on February 19, 2016. In case you're confused, yes, Future is still also slated to perform this Sunday, Dec. 13 at the Fox, alongside Migos, Young Dro, and Yo Gotti. It looks like tickets are still available for that event.

Here is the press release in case you are super bored right now — stuck on a bus or whatever:

Kicking off 2016 in style, FUTURE unveils dates for his highly anticipated, “PURPLE REIGN” tour.

The multiplatinum Atlanta hip-hop game-changer personally announced the North American tour via his social media this morning, revealing an engaging and entrancing video trailer and the above poster. He hits the road Wednesday February 17 in Madison, WI at Orpheum Theatre, lights up major markets across the country, and then finishes up at Event Center at SJSU in San Jose, CA March 19. A special fan pre-sale begins December 10 at with general on-sale December 11. The full itinerary is revealed below, and support comes courtesy of L.A. R&B mainstay Ty Dolla $ign.
Everything will turn PURPLE in 2016…

FUTURE just closed out an historic 2015, releasing not one but two #1 Billboard Top 200 albums, namely DS2 [Epic Records/A1/Freebandz] and his collaboration with Drake, What A Time To Be Alive [Epic Records/A1/Freebandz & Young Money Entertainment/OVO/Cash Money Records/Republic Records]. In addition to an online campaign, Spotify features Future in two hand-painted Brooklyn billboards to commemorate the “Year In Music,” announcing that “Bushwick spent 2,857,933 minutes with Future this year. Now, that’s a lot of f*king commas.”

Moreover, he landed on numerous year-end lists. Rolling Stone pegged DS2 at #26 on its “50 Best Albums of 2015,” and Noisey dubbed him “Artist of the Year,” including DS2 as #2 and 56 Nights as #21 on the “50 Best Albums of 2015”. He took a whopping 3 spots on Complex’s “The Best Albums of 2015” with DS2 at #2, 56 Nights at #33, and What A Time To Be Alive at #50. NPR placed DS2 on the “NPR Music’s Favorite Albums of 2015.” Meanwhile, DS2 notched #17 on Spin’s “The 50 Best Albums of 2015,” and “Thought It Was A Drought” took #20 and “F*ck Up Some Commas” captured #54 on their “101 Best Songs of 2015”.

He recently covered both XXL and Mass Appeal Magazine and delivered a downright explosive performance on the Outdoor Stage of ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! In case you missed it, watch him tear up “Blow A Bag” and “Where Ya At” from DS2 HERE.

Future’s reign continues in 2016 bigger, bolder, and better than ever.

Changing pop culture, the zeitgeist, and the game all at once, Future clawed his way to the top of hip-hop in 2015. He unleashed two unanimously acclaimed mixtapes, Beast Mode and 56 Nights, and seized #1 on the Billboard Top 200 with both DS2 and his RIAA gold-certified collaboration with Drake—What A Time To Be Alive. He conquered year-end lists from Rolling Stone, Complex, Spin, Noisey, NPR, and many more, living up to his nickname “Future Hendrix” by blasting rap quite literally to outer space. His smash single “F*ck Up Some Commas” went gold, and he performed show-stopping sets everywhere from ACL and HARD Festival to Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! As he readies more music, Future will ignite audiences everywhere on 2016’s “PURPLE REIGN TOUR.” Beware. Future is here.
