Kendrick Lamar is heading to Washington, D.C. this fall for a special one-night only performance. The Compton rapper will be performing songs off his To Pimp a ButterflyLP, with the National Symphony Orchestra.
It will be the first time Kendrick Lamar has performed at the famed venue and the first time with an orchestra. “The music that you’re going to hear is going to be a cross section of things that he has done—and things you probably haven’t heard him do live,”says National Symphony Orchestra artistic administrator Justin Ellis on the upcoming show.
Previously, the NSO collaborated with Nas for a twentieth anniversary celebration of his album, Illmatic in 2014.
Priced at $35.00-$99.00, tickets for Kendrick Lamar at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall go on-sale for members on September 29 at 10 a.m. EST and for the general public on September 30 at 10 a.m. EST. For information and to purchase tickets, click here.
