Hip-hop/rap Bay Area legend Gerald Gillum, otherwise more commonly known as G-Eazy made a stop at the FivePoint Amphitheater in Irvine, California last Tuesday. The Oakland, California native announced back in March that he would be hitting the road once more following the wrap of his last trek on The Beautiful and Damned Tour with fellow artists YBN Nahmir, P-Lo, Murda Beatz, Ty Dolla $ign and Lil Uzi Vert. The string of dates, titled The Endless Summer Tour, is a continuation of a previous tour with the same name that G-Eazy embarked on back in 2016 alongside artists Logic and Yo Gotti.
As massive LED screens were lowered on each side of the side stage, several smoke machines went off simultaneously followed by a synchronized crowd chant that echoed the opening lyrics for “Pray For Me.” “Talk to the man upstairs, hoping he answers my prayers,” G-Eazy sung in-sync with the crowd as he appeared in silhouette center stage. This may have been a co-headlining tour, but it’s clear who the audience was here for within sheer minutes of his opening set. Not missing a beat, G-Eazy continued through a catalog of his most well-known hits, including “Legend,” “Sober,” “Me, Myself & I,” and of course “No Limit.”
If there’s one thing that’s clear, it’s that G-Eazy knows how to bring a unique set to each city, and Irvine was no exception. “You know I can’t come through Orange County without making it special for y’all. Do I have any day ones in the house?” he inquired before bringing out his first surprise guest of the night, YG, among many others that made an appearance including P-Lo, Blac Youngsta, and Tyga.
“OC, I fuckin’ love you. You could have been anywhere in the world tonight and you came to fuck with us. Thank you for the bottom of my heart, we’ll see you soon,” G-Eazy concluded following his set.
G-Eazy’s Endless Summer Tour is set to wrap on September 8 at Coral Sky Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, FL. Tickets and VIP bundles can be purchased via G-Eazy’s official website here. G-Eazy’s latest album, The Beautiful and Damned, is available now.
