Ticket alert: Kendrick Lamar in West Palm Beach

Rap icon Kendrick Lamar will perform May 23 at Coral Sky Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach as part of his just-announced TDE: The Championship Tour.

Tickets will cost $17-$117 and go on sale noon Friday, Jan. 26, at all Ticketmaster outlets, including Ticketmaster.com, and by calling 800-745-3000. A series of Live Nation presales begins 10 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 25. Visit LiveNation.com.

Along with Lamar, the tour features other top acts from his label, Top Dog Entertainment, including SZA, Schoolboy Q, Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, SiR and Lance Skiiiwalker. Other performers are expected to be added to the bill.

Lamar just came through South Florida with his 2017 Damn Tour for a Sept. 2 performance in Miami’s sold-out AmericanAirlines Arena. From fiery renditions of new songs such as “DNA,” “Humble,” “Element,” “Loyalty” and “XXX” to older favorites including “Alright” and “Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe,” Lamar’s Miami concert was among the best local live shows of 2017.

The Compton, Calif., rapper’s West Palm Beach performance is one of two scheduled in Florida during the TDE: The Championship Tour, along with a May 22 stop in Tampa.

Lamar has seven nominations at the 60th annual Grammy Awards, airing live from New York's Madison Square Garden at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 28. “Damn” is up for album of the year and rap album of the year; “Humble” is nominated for record of the year, best rap song, best rap performance and best music video; and “Loyalty,” featuring Rihanna, is up for best rap/sung collaboration.
