As one of the highest anticipated shows in 2018 thus far, Vince Staples and Taco will join Tyler, The Creator at the Alliant Energy Center tonight.
Both headliner artists have been on tour after each dropping breakthrough studio albums last year. Tyler’s Flower Boy was notably a different direction for the Grammy nominated rapper, for he explores softer, more melodic flavors in his latest than in Goblin, Wolf, and Cherry Bomb. And somewhat similarly for Vince with his critically acclaimed project Big Fish Theory. The 24-year-old Long Beach artist’s rave-esque sound has separated him from modern hip-hop and allowed him to collaborate with various producers like Flume, GTA, Sophie and Sekoff. After seeing him last July at Pitchfork Music Festival, it will interesting to see if his performance has developed in any way.
