Donald Glover prefaced his This Is America tour with the cryptic announcement that it would be his last ever — at least with the Childish Gambino moniker, under which he makes ultra-ambitious, ever-evolving hip-hop and soul. If that's the case, he's closing at his absolute peak, riding high off 2016's Grammy-winning hit "Redbone" and 2018's era-defining anthem "This Is America."
Gambino takes the stage backed by a 10-piece band and a crew of dancers, plus a flashy light show. But he remains the focus of it all, shifting seamlessly from swaggering soul man to intense MC and sprinkling hints of new material amid his biggest hits. If Gambino's introduction to the rap game was as an endearing introvert, he's now the ultimate showman — a once-in-a-generation talent at the top of his game.
