Hip-hop concerts in Vancouver

As we bid farewell to A$AP Rocky and Tyler the Creator, who graced us with their presence at Rogers Arena on Nov. 10, one can’t help but want to know what future hip-hop artists are performing in Vancouver to quench our thirst. The following are artists planning to make a pit stop in Vancouver throughout their tours.

The Weeknd will be in Vancouver with his highly anticipated Fall Tour. His concert debut will be on Dec. 2, at Rogers Arena. The Weeknd has been dominating radio airplay with numerous singles such as “The Hills,” “Can’t Feel My Face” and “Earned It” from the 50 Shades of Grey soundtrack. Any true Weeknd fan would expect these songs to be performed that night. The Weeknd’s concert will also feature Travis $cott and Halsey, who are fresh faces on the music scene. Notably, $cott has made his mark in the hip-hop world with tracks like “Antidote” and “3500” from his new album “Rodeo.”

On Dec. 9, the Commodore Ballroom will host Canada’s k-os. k-os has been involved in the hip-hop scene for over 10 years. He is a Toronto native and he has produced and performed hit singles throughout his music career. His well-known tracks include “Crabbuckit,” “Sunday Morning” and “Emcee Purdah.” His concert will also feature a musical artist by the name of Saul Williams.

If underground hip-hop is more your scene, The Grouch and Eligh will be performing in a more intimate setting on Nov. 19 at the Alexander Gastown. Eligh is a producer/rapper based in Los Angeles and a member of the underground hip-hop group Living Legends. Don’t expect to hear any mainstream music at this performance but expect an edgier sound.

Tickets to most of these concerts can be purchased through ticketmaster.
