Donald Glover, a.k.a. Childish Gambino, is having a great year. The second season of his critically acclaimed FX series Atlanta premiered last week, and in February he won a Grammy for his funk revival hit, "Redbone."
And now, Childish Gambino's announced a tour that makes a stop in Oakland. It's Gambino's first Bay Area show since 2014, when he opened for Erykah Badu at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley.
Tickets go on sale for Childish Gambino's Sept. 27 Oracle Arena show with openers Rae Sremmurd this Friday, March 9, at noon, but there are a few opportunities to snag them early. Childish Gambino has his own presale that starts tomorrow, Mar. 6, at 10am. (The code has yet to be publicly announced, but the rumor on Twitter is that it might be "FIFTHTRIBE." We suggest checking Childish Gambino's website and Twitter for updates.)
There's also a March 6 presale for American Express cardholders at noon, and a Live Nation mobile app presale on March 8 at 10am. (The passwords "ENCORE" and "ACCESS" are being floated around for that one.) Also on March 8, the Oracle Arena is offering its own presale with the code "SWEATPANTS." (If all else fails, that one is confirmed.)
