‘Self Care’ rapper was to play a 26-show tour kicking off in October
Mac Miller’s 26-date fall tour has been canceled following his unexpected death early Friday (Sept. 7).
Tickets for the “Self Care” rapper’s fall tour in support of his Swimming album were pulled down hours after he passed away from an apparent overdose. The Pittsburgh rapper, singer and producer was reportedly found dead in his San Fernando Valley home.
Miller was represented by talent agency WME and his Swimming Tour was booked by Live Nation, set to kick off Oct. 27 at The Masonic in San Francisco. Miller had selected singer and bass-guitarist Thundercat and Atlanta rapper J.I.D. to open for him on tour. Both artists took to Twitter to pay their respects to Miller after learning of his death.

Miller’s planned 2018 tour included a Halloween show at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, and concerts at The Fillmore in Denver, ACL Live at the Moody Theater in Austin, Bayfront Park Amphitheater in Miami and Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom. The concert was to be one of the first hip hop shows at the new Sylvee in Madison, Wisconsin and was set to wrap Dec. 10 at the PNE Forum in Vancouver. A complete list of show dates from the July 23 announcement is below.
Mac Miller’s last show prior to his death was at the Smoker’s Club festival in Long Beach, California on April 29, where he took the stage right before headliner Kid Cudi. His last headliner show was a double booking with JAUZ at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Denver, and he performed in March at Lollapalooza events in Chile, Brazil and Argentina. A popular festival performer, Miller traveled the globe in 2017 playing Australia’s Listen Out series, France’s Synapson, Longitude in Ireland, Lovebox in London’s Victoria Park as well as festival stops in Norway, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Poland, Denmark and Mexico.
In the U.S., he performed at the 2017 Rolling Loud festival in Miami, as well as Coachella in Southern California and Sasquatch Festival in Seattle. His 2018 tour was to be his first headlining tour since his 2016 run with Soulection.
