Amazon Music will stream a sold-out Paris show on Kendrick Lamar’s ‘The Big Steppers Tour.’
Fans of Kendrick Lamar will be able to see the show exclusively on Prime Video on October 22 at 2 pm ET. The show will also be available on the Amazon Music Twitch channel and the Amazon Music app on mobile devices. The stream will also feature sets from pgLang’s Tanna Leone and Grammy Award-winning recording artist Baby Keem. Following the exclusive live stream, the performance will also be available on-demand on Prime Video.
“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,” says Tim Hinshaw, Head of R&B and Hip-Hop for Amazon Music.
“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,” Hinshaw adds.
“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,” says 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.”
Kendrick Lamar’s international tour has already traveled North America and is currently making stops in Europe, the UK, and Australia before wrapping up in New Zealand on December 16 and 17.
