Been listening to the new album and i'm blown away, not sure if i'd put it above TPAB or GKMC yet but i'd put it above Damn. Had a bit of a think about what he usually plays and I can see the setlist looking a bit like this.

1. Mr. Morale
2. N95
3. Swimming Pools (Drank)
4. Backseat Freestyle
5. Purple Trees
6. DNA
7. ELEMENT
8. LOYALTY
9. Money Trees
10. Father Time
11. King Kunta
12. Alright
13. M.A.A.D City
14. Mirror
15. Count Me Out
16. HUMBLE
Encore
17. United In Grief
18. Die Hard
19. LOVE
20. Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe

 

All the biggest hits from his older albums he tends to play live a lot plus a hefty amount of new album material which he's likely to do (see his Damn-heavy Coachella setlist in 2017 just a week after it came out).

Put it into a playlist and have a listen - think it flows pretty well. The only change i'd maybe make is swapping out Mirror or Count me Out for Mother I Sober but part of me feels like he'll lean more towards crowd-pleasers like he usually does. He never really did Blacker the Berry or Sing about Me much on recent tours or anything like that.

is purple trees the long awaited mash up of purple pills and purple hearts, with a guest feature by bizzare of d12... imagine the scenes.

After listening to the album more times than I care to admit today, I think United in Grief would be an unreal opening song to the set.

man it would be some opening.

Or…. Kendrick could be that impactful emotional set that ends the weekend… one you take home with you.

 

I'm still smarting over missing Blur to see The Prodigy tbh

sat here at 2am and listening to Auntie Diaries and it hit me...

demetrius is sheranes aka master splinters daughters cousin? from GKMC. HER FAVOURITE COUSIN DEMETRIUS IS IRREPITABLE

This song is from sheranes POV?? the girl that led to him being robbed in GKMC... where the fuck is the mind blown emoji

 

Also, subtle thing but whenever kendrick says Demetrius is Mary ann now... the sound moves from left to right (in religeon, right side is good, left side evil). when the preacher calls out demetrius in church the sound moves from right to left... its a fucking small details but it just shows the level of detail kendrick puts in his music...

 

man this guy is a genius.

About to listen to the album, none of my mates will want to watch Kendrick. All of them will be at Bicep. The album will let me know where I should be on Sunday I think. (Fontaines are on my must see list though too)

I am leaning on watching Kendrick as it stands.

Where to start with it? I am not a huge hip hop fan, but I really like Kendrick. The hip hop I am into is generally more "danceable" and generally older, but as I say Kendrick seems to be different.

Overall it's a great album.. just 1 I'm not sure I want to listen to last thing on a Sunday at Glastonbury. Starts off great with the opening 2 tunes. I am ok until we cry together, which I found funny tbh. Then musically it tails off for me. Crown, Silent Hill & Savior - lyrically are great, but are hardly party tunes for a Sunday.

Auntie Diaries is genuinely surprising. Again this isnt something to go out and stomp to, but it's a genuinely thought provoking tune. 

Mr Morale is more upbeat, before Mother I Sober is another chin stroker.

Overall I'd say it isnt my thing musically, but there is a lot to unpack lyrically & I really enjoyed it overall. The man's a genius. 

N95, Auntie Diaries & Mr Morale are the standout tracks IMO.

Still not clearer on who I'll see next month. I enjoyed the album, but it's no banger-fest.

Liking the list @Acid_Haze. I suspect we'll get something a little shorter / more cut-up with a smattering of extra guests, myself. Duval Timothy will be in the house band as well.

1. N95
2. Mr. Morale
3. King Kunta
4. Die Hard
5. Swimming Pools (Drank) / Money Trees / M.A.A.D City [Medley]
6. United In Grief
7. Count Me Out
8. Father Time [with Sampha] 
9. Backstreet Freestyle
10. Worldwide Steppers
11. LOYALTY / ELEMENT [Medley]
12. Family Ties [with/without Baby Keem]
13. Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe
14. HUMBLE
Encore
15. Mother I Share [with Beth Gibbons]
16. DNA
17. LOVE
18. Alright

Hm –  having a second stab at this. TBAP tour setlists were interesting, as he was touring a new record (an instant classic at that, too), but only played about 3 tunes off it. Let's say Mr. Morale gets a half-dozen.

Think Worldwide Steppers won't make the cut, and I suspect United In Grief might not either. If Keem is out on stage then Savior is a natural and great 1-2.

Kendrick's also never been one for a lengthy encore. Not that type of performer — and would skip them entirely for many of the early tours. Reckon we'll get an explicitly pro-(self) love ending, so, following that logic:

1. N95
2. Mr. Morale
3. King Kunta
4. DNA
5. Swimming Pools (Drank) / Money Trees / M.A.A.D City [Medley]
6. LOYALTY / ELEMENT [Medley]
7. Count Me Out
8. Father Time [with Sampha] 
9. Backstreet Freestyle
10. Savior
11. Family Ties [with/without Baby Keem] 
12. Bitch Don't Kill My Vibe
13. HUMBLE
14. Alright
Encore
15. Mother I Share [with Beth Gibbons]
16. Mirror
17. LOVE

Yeah I’ve been imagining that as the opener too. Then straight into DNA.

Fuck yes, that would be ace. 

 

Could see Mr morale as an opener for sure. Pitch black then the screens flicker off and on as a figure (do we know who it is?) Is saying the 'it was one of the worst performances of I've ever seen in my life..." huge pyrotechnics then Kenny running out straight into the verse

You have to get tickets first. 

wouldn't be too hard, he's not stupid in demand here. Note how theres no room for extra dates on the tour announced

He’s not in stupid demand here? Look at the size of the tour. He’s very much in demand and this tour will sell out super fast.

Props to people having a stab at setlists. Feels like an impossible task to me, could literally be anything. He could do the entire album start to finish or just do 2 tracks off it. Absolutely no idea.
