Westside Gunn has announced his first international tour. Dubbed the God Is Love Tour, the 12-date run kicks off on January 17 in Amsterdam, makes a stop in Paris on January 20 before heading to Vienna, Milan, Athens, Dublin, Zurich, Munster, Hamburg, Berlin and Copenhagen. The trek comes to an end on February 10 in Lisbon. The Griselda co-founder made the announcement via Instagram on Friday night (December 16).
“GOD IS LOVE TOUR 1st Run,” he wrote in the caption. “10 yrs in the making. It’s time for me to see my supporters from all over the world. Y’all supported me for so long, it’s time I come give y’all FLYGOD LIVE!!!!

Westside Gunn released his latest project, 10, in October, the final installment in the Hitler Wears Hermes series. Speaking to AllHipHop, Gunn talked about the man who appears on the album cover—Eastside Flip, a lovable Buffalo local.
‘That’s Eastside Flip,” he explained. “He’s been on a lot of my projects as skits. He’s my guy. He’s just the neighborhood fiend, a bit of a crackhead, but he’s a cool dude. I took him down to Miami Art Basal last year. He got arrested and everything. He hit a cop. He’s crazy. I’m actually going to see him today. He’s crazy as f### though. We shooting a video today and he’s just a loose cannon. Everybody in my whole city knows Flip.”
Gunn is clearly planning on staying busy in 2023. He’s currently working on new music videos after delivering “Mac Don’t Stop” and “Nigos Louis” in November. He has another project in the works called Michelle, named after his late Aunt Chelle who passed away in November 2021.
