Omar Apollo Tours North America This Fall

Omar Apollo shares a new video from his critically-acclaimed EP Friends. Directed by Matthew Dillon Cohen, “Kickback” finds Apollo as the captain of a party-fueled yacht. All seems well until he gets tired and decides to rest on the beach, leading him to get struck by lightning. The video is the fourth from the project, following visuals for “Ashamed,” “So Good,” and “Trouble.” To coincide with the launch of the video, Omar is dropping an exclusive release of select looks featured in the new video on his Depop Shop and held a fan event at the Los Angeles Depop location last night.

The video arrives ahead of his second North American headlining tour of 2019. The Speed of Sound tour will see Omar perform eighteen shows across the country, officially kicking off November 3rd in Oakland. He’s set to play shows in Chicago, Toronto, and New York, with stops at Tyler, The Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival and Tropicalía Festival, before closing out the year on December 15th in Atlanta. He will be joined by Dijon, Silver Sphere, Alexander and Shay Lia on select dates.
