Kendrick Lamar’s ‘The Big Steppers Tour’ To Stream Live On Amazon Music
Kendrick Lamar’s sold-out show at Paris’ Accor Arena on Oct. 22 will be streamed exclusively on Amazon Music and Prime Video. The show celebrates the 10-year anniversary of good kid, m.A.A.d city.
The performance will air live on Oct. 22 at 2 p.m. ET, with fans able to watch the livestream for free on Prime Video in more than 240 countries. The show will also be airing on Amazon Music’s Twitch channel, as well as from 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,” Tim Hinshaw, head of R&B and hip-hop for Amazon Music, said in a statement. “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. Now, 10 years later, it’s almost poetic that two kids from the same city but 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 his show to fans around the world.”
The show will also feature performances by Tanna Leone and Baby Keem.
