While Saturday Night Live might be hacking its usual mid-season death rattle, this past weekend's musical guest Anderson .Paak (and his very special guest Kendrick Lamar,) made up for that whole Kayne-dressed-like-a-fucking-water-bottle fiasco among other comedic atrocities (i.e. Pete Davidson's personal life.)

Anyway, Anderson .Paak announced the first leg of his Andy's Beach Club World Tour in support of his most recent Dr. Dre produced LP, Oxnard. The tour, with his longstanding band the Free Nationals, will visit 11 North American cities including Detroit at The Fillmore on Feb. 15.

The 32-year-old SoCal artist told RollingStone that Oxnard marks the third and final installment of what he calls his beach series, adding, “I feel like I have to bring it back home, you know? When you go everywhere, you just hold on to the things that made you, you.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, Dec. 7 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased here.
