Because it will likely be the last of her tours where tickets don’t sell out in minutes, where Noname won’t be performing stages where big screens are required, obstructing some of the seats, and distancing us from her. But right now, we are early in the Chicagoan, lullaby-rapper’s career. In other words, it is the perfect time to see Noname live. Her second album Room 25 was inarguably one of the best written rap albums to come out this year, and in my mind, is thought of amongst the likes of Kendrick Lamar and Nas.
When Room 25 dropped last month, fans were coming away from a debut album that was only the span of 30-minutes, making it hard for Noname to fill sets. Now, with the boost of Room 25 and all of its funk, neo-soul energy, Noname has plenty of material to deliver a set fans will be talking about for weeks.
Tonight, Noname will be performing three songs from Room 25 on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Noname is fresh off her Australia tour, which began in Melbourne. According to concert reviews, Noname refuses pretention, and is as fresh, intimate, and provocative as her deeply personal sophomore album Room 25.
Noname’s Room 25 Tour will kick off January 2nd in Detroit, and run for 19-dates, finishing off March 15th in Oakland. You can check out the full list of dates below.
