Skepta “Banned From America Tour” hit Concord Music Hall with lasting memories


UK-based hip-hop artist Skepta made a triumphant return to Chicago on April 24 as part of his Banned From America Tour. He was originally supposed to stop by the city last year on his North American tour. It was later canceled after he was denied a travel visa from authorities. Luckily, he returned with a vengeance.

From commanding the stage like a pro to rallying up fans, Skepta performed as if it to say “try to keep me out of the country now!” His set included hot tracks “It Ain’t Safe,” “Shutdown,” and “No Security” sending the crowd into a frenzy of screams and cheers. We had to wait a year for Skepta to make it to the city, but it was worth it. Check out our gallery below for a recap of the night.
