If there is a time where I wished I lived, or was visiting another state, it would be on October 20th. This Fall for one-night only, Kendrick Lamar will be performing off of his ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’ album with the National Symphony Orchestra. Taking place at the Kennedy Center next month, the washingtonian announces the Compton rapper’s performance as it will be the first time he has performed at the famous venue.
“The music that you’re going to hear is going to be a cross section of things that he has done—and things you probably haven’t heard him do live,” says National Symphony Orchestra artistic administrator Justin Ellis
Previously the National Symphony Orchestra has collaborated with Nas for a twentieth anniversary celebration of his classic album, Illmatic in 2014.
Concert prices for the show ranges from $35 to $99, which will be on sale September 29th at 10 a.m. EST for Kennedy Center Member and September 30th at 10 a.m. for the general public.
