Future might have been unceremoniously overlooked for a Grammy nomination, but he’ll spend the early part of 2016 sharing his music across the country.

The rapper’s “Purple Reign” tour kicks off Feb. 17 in Wisconsin and will swing through his hometown at 8 p.m. March 4 at The Tabernacle. Ty Dolla Sign and Lil Donald will join him at the show.

Tickets for the Atlanta date are $49.50-$65 and on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. Dec. 11. Pre-sales for Citi cardmembers, those with the Live Nation app and fans (at www.freebandz.com/purplereign/) begin at 10 a.m. Dec.10.

Future landed at the top of the Billboard 200 chart twice in 2015 – with his third studio album, “DS2,” and his collaboration with Drake, “What a Time to Be Alive.”
