Since his debut, T-Pain has built his signature sound using Auto-Tune with hits like “Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin)” and “Can’t Believe It.”
In 2014, he teamed with NPR for its Tiny Desk concert, where he performed an acoustic version of his hits. His performance received overwhelmingly positive reviews, while shutting down those who doubted his vocal ability. Now, the Grammy Award-winning singer is planning to hit the road for an acoustic tour.
The six-city tour will begin on October 4 in San Fransisco, Calif. and will hit a few cities on each coast before wrapping up on October 30 in Washington, D.C. T-Pain will bring rising acts Smino and Felly on the road with him and they will play in intimate venues in each city.
“I wanted to do something different for you guys…performing some of my favorite songs in a way you’ve never seen or heard,” T-Pain wrote on Instagram.
“The love and respect I’ve received from my NPR performance has not only shown a different side of me to fans, but it also has introduced me to a whole different set of fans,” he continued. “All I see on social media is how all my fans want to see this in person, live, with their own eyes.”
