Rapper Russ Coming to Amarillo in June

Russ is coming to Amarillo this summer.

On Monday morning, the Amarillo Civic Center Complex announced, in conjunction with Live Events, that Russ will be appearing at the arena on June 13th. The show is part of the first leg of Russ' upcoming United States tour, the I See You Tour Part 1.

The show's announcement drew heavy excitement on Facebook, as Russ has an already well established fan base in the Amarillo area. Last year, the rapper came through Amarillo to stop at a hotel, picking up dozens of vehicles and hundreds of spectators on his way to town. He then released a tweet praising his fans and said that he would like to perform a concert in Amarillo.

Russ' show will take place at the Amarillo Civic Center Complex Coliseum on Wednesday, June 13th. Tickets will go on sale on Friday, March 30th.

For tickets and more information, please visit, the official website of the Amarillo Civic Center Box Office.
