Donald Glover sheds Childish Gambino alias with a gripping show at O2 Arena

The TV and movie star showed off his wide-ranging musical side while playing at the London crowd. Donald has been fashioning a reputation for himself as one of the popular culture’s most intriguing thinkers, something that felt attested to at London’s O2 Arena on Sunday night by the presence of a newly voluminous grey-flecked beard. “Put your phones away,” he commanded the crowd at various intervals (to, of course, no avail). “This is the church.”

Donald Glover doing his farewell tour as Childish Gambino

Donald Glover is doing his farewell tour as Childish Gambino. The This Is America musician brought his particular blend of raw, contorted music to London and he held his fans like it was the Sermon on the Mount. It’s been nearly a year since Childish Gambino released “This Is America”, a sharp and satirical song with a violent video that became the anthem of 2018. There was meant to be an album, and further world domination, but instead he went quiet, aside from completing a big US tour, winning a few Grammys and performing a high-concept audiovisual event in New Zealand. He was missed and, perhaps, had missed his moment. But more to the point, his dancing may be eye-popping but his facial expressions on the big screens are unique. Eyes widen, head shakes, he squints and contorts, and the detail of the performance, given he’s as much action as a singer, can be found in those close-ups. It’s like if Tom Cruise did arena shows during his peak era of Top Gun-you would want to look at his face. He saves his two biggest songs for toward the end, “This Is America” and “Redbone” when performer and crowd are so in sync he could have repeated both for hours.
