Kendrick Lamar and Visual Artist Shantell Martin to Perform Together at Miami’s Art Basel
Kendrick Lamar and international visual artist Shantell Martin are teaming up with American Express to perform together and create a memorable experience at this year's Art Basel in Miami.
The Compton native will showcase a number of songs while Martin conducts a live sketch during his set. This will be an exclusive event for all card members in the South Florida area as part of AMEX's Music Meets Art campaign.
Lamar is not new to creating one-of-a-kind performances as he's been apart of a few this year. Most recently, he closed the 2016 American Music Awards with Maroon 5, performed a historical rendition of the song "Freedom" with Beyoncé at the BET Awards and an inspirational performance of his own music at the 2016 Grammy's.
So the Miami Basel event comes after a banner year for Lamar, who also secured the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 in March with his surprise project, Untitled, Unmastered.
Tickets go on sale today, November 28, at 12 p.m. ET and are retailing for $65 per person. The show is set to take place on December 1 at the Faena Dome in South Beach Miami. All of Martin's work will be displayed throughout the dome. This is Lamar's second partnership with AMEX following the "Small Business Saturday" spot he did with basketball legend Shaquille O'Neal. The commercial aired earlier this month.
Tickets will only be available online for American Express cardholders via Ticketmaster.com.
