When the official lineup for Bonnaroo 2015 was announced yesterday, one of the most celebrated names on the bill was Mr. Kendrick Lamar in a well-earned headlining slot. And while K-dot is no stranger to the magic on the fields of Manchester, TN, the selection left some scratching their heads.
While we can only assume that those disappointed and/or confused by the inclusion of Kendrick over what many thought would be Jay Z & Beyonce are merely unfamiliar with the rapper, perhaps a little evidence may be necessary. You can pull up Spotify to check out his music, or have a look at his new-song performance as the last-ever musical guest on “The Colbert Report,” but we’ll let fan excitement do the talking this time around with a “Before” and “After” pic of a massive Kendrick fan waiting for him to hit the stage at Austin City Limits 2013.
Before: Waiting for Kendrick
After: Kendrick Arrives
We can confirm that the young lady in question did not actually suffer a stroke and die from excitement in the front row. But more importantly, is she holding a tube top? Underpants? We still can’t figure it out.
Bonnaroo tickets go on sale Jan 17th at noon EST. More info can be found here.
