Amazon Music is set to livestream Kendrick Lamar‘s upcoming Paris concert at the Accor Arena for his ongoing The Big Steppers Tour.
Although the tour supports the rapper’s latest album Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers, the concert will also commemorate the 10th anniversary of K-Dot’s sophomore studio album, good kid, m.A.A.d city. Fans will get “a special look” at the rapper’s 65-date world tour, along with sets from pgLang artists Tanna Leone and Baby Keem, when they tune in on October 22 at 2 p.m. EST to catch the show live and for free via Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide, the Amazon Music Twitch channel and on the Amazon Music app.
“As a kid from the west side of Compton, hearing good kid, m.A.A.d city for the first time and seeing Kendrick’s journey from neighborhood hero to global superstar ignited a fire in me that I’m forever grateful for. It showed me that no matter where you start in life, hard work and dedication will put you where you hope and dream to be,” Tim Hinshaw, head of R&B and hip-hop for Amazon Music, said in a statement. “Now, 10 years later, it’s almost poetic that two kids from the same city with similar, but different dreams have landed in Paris to celebrate not just that record but Kendrick’s latest revolutionary album, Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers. We’re honored to sponsor this tour and bring this show to fans around the world.”
“We are thrilled to be working with Kendrick Lamar, one of the most influential and groundbreaking artists of my generation, and pgLang to collaborate across Amazon for this epic entertainment event,” added Alaina Bartels, head of talent synergy & specials, Amazon Studios. “We continue to be the home for talent and creating special opportunities for our global customers to experience their awe-inspiring creativity.”
