Houston rap legend Scarface announced a 32-city run Tuesday that he’s calling “The Farewell Tour.” The tour begins in Oakland, Calif., on July 8 and wraps up with three stops in Texas – Aug. 18 in Dallas, Aug. 19 in Austin and Aug. 27 in Odessa. As of now, there’s no date on the tour listed for Scarface’s hometown of Houston.

Scarface had a “farewell” show at Houston’s House of Blues in November. Five months later, he did a set at Sugar Land’s Smart Financial Centre as an opener for Ice Cube in April.

Tickets for the summer tour, on which he will be backed by his band Formaldehyde Funkmen, go on sale Wednesday at Ticketmaster.

The Aug. 6 stop on this tour will be a special one, because it will be at LL Cool J’s Rock The Bells Festival in New York on the 20th anniversary of Scarface’s classic album “The Fix,” which gave us the classic hits “My Block” and “Guess Who’s Back.”

The 51-year-old rapper has had some health scares in recent years, battling COVID-19 in the early stages of the pandemic in March 2020, then suffering kidney failure. He received a kidney transplant from his son Christopher Jordan and has been in much better health recently.

Scarface, aka Brad Jordan, grew up in Houston and was a member of the Geto Boys. Besides his hits as part of the legendary group, Scarface has had hit singles including “My Block,” “Smile” – the 1997 song, which also features Tupac – “I Seen a Man Die” and “Look Me in My Eyes,” among many others.
