Childish Gambino might have fibbed a bit when he told fans that his Governors Ball performance was going to be his "only show" of 2017, as the "Redbone" rapper is heading to Radio City Music Hall. The rapper and actor just announced that he will be doing a joint performance with Dave Chappelle on August 19 at the famous New York City concert venue to cap off the summer.
According to Ticketmaster, the site just listed the show, with tickets going on sale to the public on Friday, June 16, at 10 A.M. If you're a Chase preferred cardmember, you're in luck, as there will be a presale tomorrow (June 13) at 10 A.M., along with a Ticketmaster presale going live on Thursday, June 15 at 12 P.M.
We're not sure what the rapper and comedian have planned for the show, but we can assume it will be combining comedy with hip-hop, which the two are both heavily involved in within their careers. The show is one in a series of shows Chappelle is doing with The Roots, Erykah Badu, Trevor Noah and more.
"I'll see you for the last Gambino album," Gambino told the crowd at Governors Ball.
Dave Chappelle will be coming to Radio City with two Netflix stand-up specials under his belt, including The Age of Spin and Deep in the Heart of Texas. While they were met with some controversy from the media, they both still received praise from his die-hard fans and the online community.
Tickets for Childish Gambino and Dave Chappelle's show will go on sale this Friday, so be sure to have your wallets ready.
