Childish Gambino kicks off his new “This Is America” tour in Atlanta at the Infinite Energy Arena. He debuted two new songs that were available only to fans who purchased tickets. The tour features shows with Vince Staples and Rae Sremmurd.
The new songs, “Algorhythm” and “All Night” are now available for everyone else to listen to. Watch below:
During the performance, a surprise to many, Glover stated that this will be the “last Gambino Tour ever.” Last year, he announced that his upcoming Childish Gambino album would be the last under that name.
Over the weekend, Childish Gambino had a few other things for his fans, a cameo-packed video for “Feels Like Summer.”
Donald Glover, stage name Childish Gambino, has had a long, successful, and prominent career as an actor, comedian, and rapper. He began his career in 2002. He first came into the spotlight when he was hired by Tina Fey at age 23 as a writer for the NBC Sitcom 30 Rock.
He dove into music soon after. He self-released many albums and mixtapes. In 2011, he signed to Glassnote Records. With this label he released his first album, Camp, which gained very positive reviews. He has since released albums Because the Internet, Awaken My Love! and This Is America. “Redbone” from Awaken My Love! earned him a Grammy Award for Best Traditional R&B Performance. And in 2018, the release of his “This is America” video debuted at the top of Hot 100.
