The VIPP Report: Louisville native Bryson Tiller adds a second show in his hometown

By Sherlene Shanklin

Someone mentioned to me yesterday that Louisville native Bryson Tiller will have two show in Louisville as part of his “Set It Off” tour.  I looked at that schedule multiple times and just didn’t see it.

Then in the last hour the Grammy-nominated artist announced three popup shows and there it was “LOUISVILLE”.

Tiller will start the popups tomorrow, June 1st with The Roxy in Los Angeles, CA. The second on will be June 3rd in New York at the Bowery Ballroom and then his last popup will be in his hometown of Louisville, KY.  He will be at the Mercury Ballroom on Wednesday, June 7th.

The Mercury Ballroom is an intimate venue where the patrons stand.  It holds around 900 people.

The show is scheduled for 9:00 p.m. This is what the Mercury Ballroom is saying about the concert:

His “Trap Soul” album took the music industry by storm.  Now, Louisville native and Grammy nominated artist Bryson Tiller announces his “Set It Off” tour and of course his hometown is on the list.

Fans will see Bryson on Saturday, September 16 at the KFC Yum! Center as part of his North American tour.  Metro Boomin and R&B singer H.E.R. will open the show.

His new album “True to Self” is already getting rave reviews and maybe ranked of No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart. He surprised fans by releasing it on May 26th about a month earlier than its anticipated date.

I will monitor that ranking when it comes out this Sunday, June 4. This is only Bryson’s aka Pen Griffey’s second album.  The RCA artist has been singing and rapping since his high school days at Iroquois High and in 2014 his single “Don’t” became a hit thanks to the internet and his new found followers. Artists like Drake and Timbaland vibed on Tiller’s sound and that’s what got labels interested.

Now, he’s had hits like “Sorry Not Sorry”, “Exchange” and his current hit “Somethin Tells Me”.

Bryson is already collecting plenty of hardware for his trophy case. In 2016, he won Best new artist, Best R& B/Pop artist at the BET Awards. He also won Best New R & B artist at the iHeart Radio Music Awards this year.  His nominations have been adding up too from the Grammy Awards to the Billboard Music Awards.

The tour kicks off on June 23rd in Los Angeles in the Staple Center.

Tickets for the September 16th show in Louisville start at $39.50. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the concert will begin at 7:30 p.m.
