Tuesday night, Kendrick kicked off the extensive run in support of his Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers album with a stop at the Paycom Center in Oklahoma City. As expected, footage from the trek-launching show quickly permeated social media.
See a far-from-exhaustive selection of such footage below. Fair warning, however: for those who like to enter a live experience with as few spoilers as possible, avoiding these clips may be the best path forward.
As previously reported, Baby Keem is providing support for all stops on this run, while Tanna Leone will also be on the lineup for select shows. The next scheduled stop is this Thursday at the Moody Center in Austin, Texas. Additional upcoming July dates include shows in Miami, Tampa, Atlanta, and more. See a full list of dates here.
Of course, fans—as seen in footage of last night’s tour kickoff—can expect to see a number of Mr. Morale tracks on this global outing, with several having made their performance debuts in Oklahoma. Back catalog highlights—including “Alright” and “Humble”—were also on the setlist on Tuesday.
During his Glastonbury set in June, Kendrick Lamar shared a set-closing message in support of women’s rights in the wake of the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade. While wearing a custom Tiffany & Co. crown of thorns with fake blood streaming down his face, Kendrick told the crowd, “Godspeed for women’s rights. They judge you, they judge Christ.”
