One of the most anticipated events at ComplexCon was Kid Cudi’s performance on the main stage for night one, and the Cleveland artist didn’t disappoint as he powered through his catalog of hits and deep cuts alike with an energy that filled the entire arena.
Notable songs performed included "Pursuit of Happiness," "Frequency," and "Erase Me." He also brought out Travis Scott and Pharrell, who performed a handful of collaborations together like "Surfin'," "Through the Late Night," and "Way Back." Cudi repped Cleveland to the fullest by bringing out King Chip as well for "Just What I Am."
Near the end of his "Pursuit of Happiness" performance, Cudi shared a special message for his fans. "I know life is crazy and shit and shit comes our way but we can get through this shit," he said. You can watch the clip below.
Cudi’s performance at ComplexCon marks his first since Trillectro Music Festival in August—where he debuted his Pharrell-assisted “Surfin’”—and more importantly his first public appearance since a recent stint in rehab for depression.
It appears Kid Cudi is back on track to deliver his album Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’ which boasts two singles, “Frequency” and the aforementioned “Surfin’.”
