Benny the Butcher, Conway the Machine & Westside Gunn Announce Griselda Tour 2022
Westside Gunn, Conway The Machine, and Benny The Butcher, three founding members of Griselda, will embark on a co-headlining tour this spring.
Following their performance at Coachella in April, the trio will headline ten shows across North America this Spring. Starting in Chicago on May 10, Benny, Gunn and Conway will then head through Boston, New York City, Washington, Atlanta, Dallas and others before wrapping up in Los Angeles on June 3. This will be the trio's first tour since they sold-out back-to-back shows at the Novo in Los Angeles in 2020.
Sale of tickets begins Friday, March 25th at 10am local time on the Griselda website.
The tour coincides with each founding member of Griselda having released a new album in the past year. Earlier this year, Westside Gunn released the massive double-album Hitler Wears Hermes 8, while Conway The Machine and Benny The Butcher both released highly anticipated solo albums. Conway released God Don't Make Mistakes in February, while Benny released Tana Talk 4 on Friday (March 18).
Durk easily took the top spot on the Billboard 200 this week with 7220. Benny's album, meanwhile, debuted at No. 15 and sold 19,900 equivalent album sales, according to Akademiks. In raw album sales, Benny reportedly outsold Lil Durk by 7,300 copies to 3,000 for Durk.
This announcement of the upcoming tour coincides with the news that Conway The Machine has left Griselda. According to him, the original contract he signed was never in his favor, so he sought to renegotiate.
