To the delight of his fans, singer and rapper Lil Nas X revealed earlier this week that he’s heading out on his first North American and European tour.
The ‘Long Live Montero Tour’ will kick off September 6th in Detroit, and will be followed by 13 other dates in North America, including Chicago, Toronto, Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Nashville, Miami, Los Angeles and San Francisco. It will be followed by dates in Europe in November.

One US state the gay superstar won’t be playing this time around is Texas. The ‘Industry Baby’ hitmaker took to Twitter to explain why.
“i’m sorry i’m not coming to texas for tour. my ex lives out there.”
i’m sorry i’m not coming to texas for tour. my ex lives out there.

At the time of writing, his tweet had over 200k likes in just over 12 hours.
Whether he was being serious or joking (we suspect the latter), his fans had plenty to say, from disappointed Texanites to those imploring him to visit their own particular state.
as someone who once moved to a different continent to get away from family, this is a very relatable tweet https://t.co/k1i7GAslvx

Ted Cruz is his ex?
That’s a terrible thing to say to an American.
Nas always brings WAP to mind.
Gurl, please tell me you were joking when you referred to people from Texas as “Texanites.” Also, on behalf of a lot of TEXANS, who is Lil Nas X?
Texanites=Human Termites full of prejudice, ignorance and hate.
Texans=People from Austin & parts of Dallas & a lost soul here or there out amongst the desert sun and rattlesnakes.
“All my exes live in Texas, Texas is a place I truly love to be. But all my exes live in Texas that’s why I hang my hat in Tennesee.”
I live in Texas.
I am not his ex.
I don’t blame him.
There’s lots of times I don’t want to be here either.
I would personally love to visit Texas! That might be an outsider looking in mentality though lol (I’m from the UK). But I’ve always said an ideal American trip would include California, New York, New Orleans, Texas, Salem, Hawaii, and Las Vegas (but not in Summer).
Been to Texas many times, have relatives there, and I enjoy Austin (I loved it especially before it blew up into a megacity), Houston (great food, culture), Dallas (interesting, more conservative than Houston but still a big, liberal city), San Antonio (great people), El Paso (and Las Cruces right across the border), Marfa (great little art town), and San Marcos (a laid-back town between Austin and San Antonio). The only Texas city I’m not so fond of is Corpus Christi (just dull). Fort Worth is huge but doesn’t register to me except as Dallas’s neighbor. But I’d always rather visit Texas than live there!
Love Lil Nas X too!
I would stay away from Florida too just because. But then again – him being in Florida will probably piss alot of them off. If that is the case – go to Florida.
I thought the same thing.
Well for one he is talented and easy on the eyes with a great sense of humor.
Why would anyone go to a Lil Nas X concert anyway? I don’t see a reason why anyone would.
I don’t think anyone gives a flying F what you think. Probably another troll.
@bgreen- fck you. Not all of us ate rethuglicans. Most of are voting out hotwheels & want change in this state.
