Earlier this week (June 19), Childish Gambino’s Pharos app revealed that the rapper would be performing new material at a concert series in Joshua Tree, California. 

Tickets for the three announced concert dates on Sept. 2, 3, 4 went on sale today via the Pharos app and sold out in six minutes after being released at noon. Responding to the large demand by fans, two more late night performances have been scheduled for Sept. 2 and 3. Those tickets went on sale at 3 p.m. EST today.

The Pharos concert series is advertised as a “full album experience,” including new music from Donald Glover’s rap project. His last full-length album, Because the Internet, was released in 2013. Glover also has his FX TV series Atlanta expected to premiere in September 2016.
