Well, this should draw a crowd.

Post Malone — whose song "Rockstar" was No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for eight weeks in late 2017, the same year that he had the most-watched music video and at one point was the most-streamed artist in the world — is coming home ... kinda.

The rapper, who attended Grapevine High School as Austin Post, has announced a North American tour that includes a June 14 stop at the Pavilion at Toyota Music Factory in Irving, a short drive down Texas 114 in Grapevine.

Adding to the draw: Also on the tour is 21 Savage, the rapper Post Malone worked with on "Rockstar." SOB X RBE will be special guests.

Post Malone is also due to release a new single, "Psycho" featuring Ty Dolla $ign, on Friday, which, not coincidentally, is the day tickets go on sale. Sale starts at 10 a.m. at LiveNation.com, where there is already a lot of presale activity.

Every pair of online tickets purchased comes with one physical copy of PostMalone’s forthcoming album, "Beerbongs & Bentleys," which also happens to be the name of his Twitter feed.
