pH-1 announces North American dates for 2023 ‘About Damn Time’ world tour

The Korean-American rapper is also set to tour Asia and Europe

Korean-American rapper pH-1 has announced North American dates for his upcoming ‘About Damn Time’ world tour.

On November 8, pH-1’s label H1GHR MUSIC unveiled the upcoming North American dates for his upcoming ‘About Damn Time’ world tour. Set to kick off in San Francisco in January 2023, the first leg of the rapper’s tour will span eight cities across the US, and one in Canada.

Ticket sales for most shows go on sale on November 11 local time. Venues and dates, as well as links to tickets, can be found on Kohai.


This comes a day after his agency first announced on Twitter that he will soon be holding his ‘About Damn Time’ world tour with a brief visualiser clip featuring the rapper. While only North American dates have been revealed, the label shared that pH-1 will also be touring cities in Asia and Europe.

pH-1’s North American ‘About Damn Time’ tour dates are:

This tour announcement comes nearly two months after the arrival of the star’s second studio album ‘But for Now Leave Me Alone’. At the time, the album had been his first studio release in over three years.

The 13-track record was preceded by the single ‘Mr. Bad’, with pH-1 later dropping music videos for the songs ‘Zombies’, ‘Tipsy’ and ‘Yuppie Ting’ featuring Blasé. ‘But for Now Leave Me Alone’ also included a string of collaborations, including features by South Korean rappers and singers Woo, Paloalto and Mokyo along with American artists Los and UMI.


In a 2021 interview with NME, pH-1 had expressed his desire to perform for fans all over the world after being unable to perform during the pandemic. “Europe, the States or Asia – wherever I can get myself,” he said at the time.

In other Korean music news, Big Hit Music has confirmed that BTS’ leader and rapper RM is currently planning to release his debut solo album. Although he had previously released solo projects in the form of mixtapes and collaborations, the forthcoming record will mark his official debut.
