J. Cole Announces “The Sideline Story Tour”


(AllHipHop News) J.Cole has announced that he will headline the Campus Consciousness Spring 2012/Sideline Story Tour, in support of his critically acclaimed album Cole World: The Sideline Story.

J.Cole will hit the road with Big K.R.I.T. starting this April.

The Campus Consciousness Spring 2012/Sideline Story Tour tour is being sponsored by Reverb, a program that aims to educate and mobilize students to make positive changes for the environment.

“My music gives me a platform to reach a lot of young people,” J.Cole told AllHipHop.com. “I’m happy to be partnering with Reverb to engage my fans and hope they’ll get on board with these positive environmental messages.”

Daytime activities for students prior to the concert at the CCT “Eco-Village” include voter registration, live music and other Eco-friendly initiatives.

“We’re thrilled to be working with J. Cole this spring,” Reverb Co-Director and founder Adam Gardner stated. “He is so clearly passionate about social issues and I am looking forward to our two camps joining together to make a difference.”

The 17-date-tour kicks off April 11 in Rhode Island, and winds down May 4 in South Orange, New Jersey at a private location.
