As Pittsburgh MC Mac Miller continues his journey across America with his Space Migration Tour alongside opening acts Chance The Rapper, The Internet and Vince Staples, he stopped in New York City last night for a performance at the famed Hammerstein Ballroom. While the show was essentially identical to the tour’s stop in Asbury Park last week, it somehow felt more grandiose, with Mac and Co. performing on a big stage for their most feverish supporters.

After a lightning-speed appearance by Vince Staples, the groovy and live instrument-backed The Internet ran through a few choice cuts from their debut album Purple Naked Ladies, in the process showing off lead singer Syd The Kid’s improved stage presence and refined vocals. With the crowd ready and anxious (and after a mini-performance by his extra-excited DJ/hype man), Chance The Rapper hopped onstage for an energetic set that featured him performing the bulk of his recent Acid Rap mixtape and bringing out TDE star Ab-Soul for a rendition of their song “Smoke Again.”

Finally, with the tween crowd seemingly foaming at their mouths, Mac Miller made his way to the stage and ran through a long list of hits like “Loud,” “Goosebumpz” and “SDS” from mixtapes like K.I.D.S. and Macadelic, as well as his recent album Watching Movies With The Sound Off. He also went on to bring out Ab-Soul for a performance of their catchy collab “Matches.” Check out our photo gallery of the event above.
