Childish Gambino, the rap ego of Donald Glover, has begun his “This Is America” Tour. “I’m here to have an experience with you,” Gambino said, before beginning his set at the United Center stage in Chicago. At Infinite Energy Arena, Gambino stated valiantly, “This is not a concert. This is church.” But in addition to revving up his audiences, Gambino has confirmed what he alluded to back in January.
“If you’re at this show know it’s the last Gambino tour ever,” he said.
Despite (allegedly) being the last Gambino tour, we think the distinction Glover continues to make is important, especially since he has already begun hinting at forthcoming work. “I’m making another project right now, but I like endings, I think they’re important to progress,” Glover said in a press conference.
Though Glover is retiring the Gambino name from future album releases and tours, we are hopeful that he will still release new music, just under a new moniker. And considering how Glover’s projects have only increased in artistic quality, shouldn’t we be excited? With his first, No. 1 song beneath his belt, not to mention the Golden Globe award-winning series Atlanta, we think Glover has all the steam he needs.
With “This Is America” being Childish Gambino’s final tour, Glover has decided to give it his all—and then some. His sets, spanning 17 songs, include hits past and present, rap and funk, as well as the debut of new material. You can check out the “This Is America” Tour setlist below.
