Jelly Roll (no, not the wedding band) has announced his first pair of international tour dates ever, which will bring him to Canada — where he's had three No. 1 radio hits to date — for a pair of concerts in July, Billboard reports.

The Southern mixtape rapper will perform at the Meridian Centre in St. Catharines at an event benefitting the Heather Winterstein Foundation on July 8, followed by a performance at the RBC Stage at Ottawa Bluesfest on July 9.

"The Heather Winterstein Foundation and the family of Heather Winterstein are grateful that Jelly Roll is honouring us with his very first Canadian concert on our behalf," the organization's executive director, Jennifer Dockstader, said in a statement. "His dedication to raising awareness, sharing his story of healing, and supporting substance use disorder treatments are a beacon of hope for Indigenous and non-Indigenous people alike across Turtle Island. His message brings the struggles of our loved ones into the open and helps us celebrate the healing journeys of our relatives in our community, offering opportunities for equity and reconciliation."

Jelly Roll hasn't performed outside of the continental US prior to this due to visa restrictions tied to some arrests and convictions earlier in his life.

Tickets for the St. Catharines show go on sale to the general public this Friday (June 21) following a presale beginning Thursday (June 20) at 10 a.m. local, while the Bluesfest gig goes on sale tomorrow (June 19) at 10 a.m. here.
