Don­ald Glover com­pletes an un­likely tra­jec­tory from sit­com co-star and nov­elty rap­per to era-defin­ing artist. In be­tween play­ing Lando Cal­ris­sian and shep­herd­ing an­other sea­son of At­lanta, he man­aged to cap­ture the 2018 zeit­geist as his al­ter ego, Child­ish Gam­bino, with the vi­ral “This Is Amer­ica” track. The rap­per hasn’t re­leased a full al­bum since 2016. But his tour might of­fer a glimpse into how he’ll build on the mo­men­tum of his re­cent hit, and even with­out an abun­dance of new ma­te­rial to pro­mote, the play­ful­ness of his act­ing car­ries over to his on­stage per­for­mance— so much so that on his last tour, one reviewer noted, “Ev­ery con­cert should be like this.”
