“This is America-”
“No, this is Patrick!”
Comedian and actor turned musician Childish Gambino (real name Donald Glover) has found unprecedented success in mainstream music in recent years. Although he had seen success with prior releases going as far as his first mixtape, “This Is America” and it’s social commentary was what really broadened his horizons.
In true Bowie fashion, Gambino announced he planned to retire the musical act after Final Project, while still at the top of his game.
Like a true artist, he chooses to go when he feels like a story has been told, a point has been made, and there is no need to milk something good until it’s legacy is tarnished.
Not all of us will be available to catch this stand-out act on the This Is America tour. ACL might be one of your final chances to see him live before that is never an option again. Plus, you’ll have a plethora of other artists to enjoy during the weekend-long event. Buy your tickets now… while you still can!
