Celebrating the 25th anniversary of his hit song, “Back That Azz Up,” from his breakthrough 1998 album, 400 Degreez, Juvenile has announced an extensive North American tour with a full live band. Following the proclamation of New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell declaring June 11 as Back That Azz Up Day, Juvie has announced several tour dates that will span from July to December, making stops in Asheville (August 31 at Rabbit Rabbit) and Charlotte (November 22 at The Fillmore).

Growing up in the Magnolia Projects of New Orleans, Juvenile’s career took off with Cash Money Records in the late ’90s with the success of the rap group The Hot Boys, and his third studio album, 400 Degreez, featuring the hit singles “Ha” and “Back That Azz Up.” He followed up with Tha G-Code in 1999, with the tracks “U Understand” and “I Got That Fire,” and his most recent platinum-selling album, Juve the Great, in 2003, which features the chart-topping single, “Slow Motion,” with Soulja Slim.

In 2023, Juvenile performed for NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert with longtime producer Mannie Fresh and New Orleans musicians Jon Batiste, Trombone Shorty, and Alvin Ford Jr. This will mark the first national tour for Juvenile with his 400 Degreez Band.

Presale will begin on June 11 at 10 a.m. for Charlotte on November 22 at The Fillmore (code: CHORD) and Asheville on August 31 at The Rabbit Rabbit. Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, June 14 at 10 a.m.
