Kendrick Lamar's concert at American Airlines Center in Dallas on Friday surely has fans counting down the hours until the weekend. Now there's another reason to get excited.
The Grammy award-winning rapper is opening a pop-up shop the day of his concert that will "likely feature some of the Lamar-related apparel Top Dawg Entertainment has unveiled in recent weeks," according to Rolling Stone. (Indeed, thedamnpopup.com links to a splash page for Damn.-inspired merch.)
The pop-up will be hosted at Black Market USA (5509 W. Lovers Lane, Suite B) in Dallas, the boutique confirmed. It will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on July 14.
Nick White, manager of the Dallas store, said there are no plans for the pop-up aside from selling Lamar's tour merchandise. However, there is a possibility Lamar himself may stop by.
"There is a chance," White told GuideLive. "We're not too sure, we're hoping."
Whatever the case, you can likely count on a line. When Kanye West brought a pop-up clothing shop to Frisco's Stonebriar Centre last year, the line to get in snaked through the mall like an airport security check point. Fans waited hours to get their hands on official Life of Pablo merch. The Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour also opened a popular pop-up when it came through town last fall.
Check out the scene:
Kendrick Lamar is coming to Dallas on his Damn. tour to support his enthralling album by the same name. Our music critic Kelly Dearmore has called the rapper "commercially dominant and critically untouchable," especially since his fiery Grammys performance in 2016. You know, the one that kicked off with Lamar, the dancers and musicians in chains for "Alright" -- a showstopper to be sure.
Tickets to see Kendrick Lamar are still available for $130 each. Travis Scott and D.R.A.M. open the show on July 14.
The Damn. pop-up shop continues alongside the tour to Houston, Atlanta, Philadelphia and beyond.
