Boldy James and the Alchemist have announced new tour dates, which will mark the MC's first live performances since being involved in a "serious two-car accident" in his hometown of Detroit earlier this year.

The Six Million Dollar Man Tour begins with a hometown performance for Boldy, and continues with summer dates in Los Angeles, New York, and Austin ahead of a leap to Europe in August.

No Canadian shows appear in the itinerary. Boldy James and the Alchemist last performed in the country on 2022's NBA Leather Tour. Find their list of dates below.

In January, Boldy James shared news of the car accident in a statement on Instagram, which detailed that he was admitted to hospital "in critical condition" and underwent "extensive surgery on his neck" to remedy "broken vertebrae in his neck and [orthopaedic] injuries."

2022 was a prolific one for Boldy James. Last year, the Detroit artist teamed with Real Bad Man for a second collaborative LP in Killing Nothing, lined up a pair of excellent Canadian collabs in Fair Exchange No Robbery with Nicholas Craven and Mr.Ten08 with Futurewave, and appeared on releases by Badge Époque Ensemble and Ev Bird.
