Tyler, The Creator brings ‘Igor’ to life

By Steven Nunez, Photojournalist

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.

The Californian rapper’s album—which he wrote, produced and arranged himself—hit number 1 on the Billboard 200 this summer. 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. Tyler also performed songs from his previous albums “Flower Boy” and “Goblin.”

Tyler’s performance featured a mix of color, soul and rage; all the while he had the crowd singing, dancing and moshing. Tyler, The Creator will continue to tour North America and soon the United Kingdom.
