Funky! Thundercat opening for Red Hot Chili Peppers and The Strokes at Soldier Field (August 19, 2022)

Thundercat takes the stage right at 6:30pm on a beautiful 80 degree night in Chicago. He is wearing a yellow track suit and he is ready to rock. With his band, they launch into some funky tunes. He is playing a six string bass guitar with his bandmates on keyboards and drums.

On “Overseas” he sings about traveling with his girl.  “I wanna meet you in Brazil, Take you to a place that you never been before”. “Or maybe meet up in Japan, Baby we can just hold hands”. During Chicago winters, this sounds great. But during the summer, there is no better place in the world to be than Soldier Field for this show!

Midway through the set, he asks who has seen the new Dragonball movie. Not many people respond. “There aren’t many of us,” he says, “but this next one is for the fans” as he begins playing “Dragonball Durag”.

After just 30 minutes, his set is over. It was just a small sample of his music, but he surely gained some new fans tonight.
