Watch Childish Gambino Perform New Songs, Declare “This Is America” Tour His “Last Ever”

“This is not a concert. This is fucking church.”

Earlier this week, Childish Gambino launched his This Is America tour in Atlanta’s Infinite Energy Arena. But he also took the opportunity to declare it a swan song.

A fan video from the performance posted to Reddit captures Gambino’s address, pronouncing “If you’re at this show know it’s the last Gambino tour ever.” And while the prospect of This Is America essentially serving as a final victory lap for the artist circumstantially known as Donald Glover, it is the only stage that will see the performance of two unreleased (and reportedly unfinished) songs, “Algorhythm” and “All Night,” sent to ticket-holders as direct downloads upon purchase.

The This Is America tour bookends The Last Summer of Bino, which commenced with the release of the viral namesake single, followed by the double-sided summer suite, “Summertime Magic” and “Feels Like Summer,” the latter receiving a star-studded animated treatment with cameos from damn-near every rapper on record.

Watch a clip of Childish Gambino performing “All Night” and “Algorhythm” below. Download the Pharos app to purchase tickets for the remaining stops on the This Is America tour.
