Long Live Montero! That happens to be what we think of Lil Nas X's debut album, as well as it being the name of his upcoming debut tour, which he's just announced.

The 'Industry Baby' rapper, 23, announced the tour on Tuesday (26 April) and he will be coming to the UK for one night only in November!

Posting a trailer for the tour on Twitter Lil Nas joked: "i’m having my very first tour. and all of u better come or i will cry on instagram live." Don't worry, we'll be there!

And we will definitely be going, despite a warning in the trailer that "everyone's allowed, except gay people".

The Moulin Rouge-esque trailer welcomes people to the event and Lil Nas' world and features clips of the rapper's various music videos as well as some of his Met Gala appearances. 

The Montero album, debuted last year and featured hits such as 'Montero (Call Me By Your Name)', 'Industry Baby', and 'That's What I Want'. 

The Long Live Montero tour kicks off in Detroit, Chicago on 6 September, and will see Nas tour across North America. 

In November he heads over to Europe and will land in the UK for one performance at London's Eventim Apollo on Saturday 12 November.
