Thundercat arrives at The Anthem in DC on Thursday, Oct. 19, for a concert in support of his In Yo Girl’s City Tour 2023!
The news of Thundercat’s tour followed the release of his collaboration with Tame Impala, “No More Lies,” which received praise from Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, and MTV among many others, and got designated BBC Radio 1’s Hottest New Record.
The massive tour and new single coincide with a meteoric rise in public consciousness for Thundercat, who was awarded Best Progressive R&B Album at the 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards (2021) for It Is What It Is. 2022 found him on a stadium world tour with rock legends Red Hot Chili Peppers with Flea subsequently naming Thundercat (born Stephen Bruner) “the best bass player on the planet.”
Bruner also collaborated with Gorillaz on their 2023 album, featuring on the stellar title track “Cracker Island.” He starred in the official video and performed with Gorillaz at Coachella and at the 2022 MTV European Music Awards ceremony. Also in 2022, Thundercat covered “Fly Like An Eagle” for the Minions: The Rise of Gru OST, executive produced by Jack Antonoff, and made his acting debut in Star Wars “The Book of Boba Fett” on Disney+.
