"I love you forever for supporting me."
Looks like it’s official. Thursday night (Sept.6th) Childish Gambino kicked off his “This Is America” tour in his hometown of Atlanta at the city’s Infinite Energy Arena. While fans piled in to enjoy the show, Gambino made sure they left with a little something—no matter how devastating.
"Number one, if you're at this show, then you know this is the last Gambino tour ever," he said before the crowd in a clip uploaded by a Reddit user. "I love you forever for supporting me and coming out for this shit. Second, if you're in here, that means you bought a ticket. So, you don't need to film this shit. Experience this shit. This is not a concert. This is fucking church. If you're not here to celebrate life, if you're not here to enjoy your time here, if you're just here to hear your favorite song, you should go home right now and do that. I'm here to have an experience with y'all tonight, you feel me?"

Of course, this echoes previous sentiments brought forward by the multi-hyphenate within the last year. After a period of “will he or won’t he” debates, he’s put it in the plainest of terms. Of course, it isn’t the final nail in the coffin. The Atlanta tour stop was host to a couple ofnew tracks debuted live during the showand the "This Is America" trek will continue well into the end of October as he weave through cities like Chicago, Toronto, Dallas, and wraps up at the Voodoo festival in New Orleans on October 26th.
