Kendrick Lamar returns to Sacramento on Tuesday night when he brings the highly anticipated “Big Steppers” tour to Golden 1 Center.
This tour is said to be just as striking and elaborate as his last album, “Mr. Morale and the Big Steppers“. With a variety of sets, dancers and settings portrayed on stage, Lamar has racked up a generous number of positive reviews so far.
“His ‘Big Steppers Tour’ is yet another statement of intent, taking performance art in the genre, and music as a whole, to new heights.” – Variety
“Not every through line is consistent, not every vibe is maintained when you think they should be. Instead, the Big Steppers tour becomes a wild ride through Lamar’s psyche as well as some of the best music made by anyone in the last 10 years.” – Stereogum
“A good portion of Mr. Morale consists of him asking fans to let him simply be a rapper. Set-ender ‘Savior’ espoused that, with his continued refrain, ‘I am not your savior.’ And he’s right. He’s not our savior, and we shouldn’t expect him or any other recording artist to be. But he’s an incredible showman, and The Big Steppers tour is a damn good way to spend a night out.” – Complex
“I’ve seen Kendrick put on a number of life-affirming shows over the years, but the Big Steppers Tour is on an entirely different level, and unlike anything else he’s ever done.” – Brooklyn Vegan
There are nine stops remaining on the tour, including Tuesday night’s show in Sacramento. The tour also features supporting acts Baby Keem and Tanna Leone, who both appeared on Lamar’s latest album
Lamar tweeted his own review of the show:
Lamar wraps up his tour with dates in California and Nevada through the rest of September before finishing up with shows in Europe, Australia and New Zealand in October.
