Tyler, The Creator hit the road for a fall tour after the release of his studio album, “Igor.” The rapper stopped by Credit Union 1 Arena, 525 S. Racine Ave., Thursday for the third stop on his tour. Tyler also brought along GoldLink and Jaden Smith as opening acts.

He brought the character he played in his music video for “EARFQUAKE” to life on stage by performing in a suit and a blonde wig.
