Future comes out strong at Coachella.
Backed by a live band, an animated DJ Esco, and large video screens, Hendrix tore down the annual festival’s second night overall on Saturday (April 15). He opened the show alone to “Rent Money,” but he had some tricks up his sleeve for the evening.
The first of those surprises was Ty Dolla $ign, who popped up for the fan favorite “Blasé.” Later, Migos rain dropped on the show for a surprise performance of “T-Shirt” and “Bad and Boujee,” giving fans a taste of the “Nobody Safe Tour” and giving Hendrix a wardrobe change opportunity. Finally, Drake emerged for a Freebandz/OVO connection with “Jumpman.”
This offered the Super Trapper another chance to take a break while the 6 God manned the stage. “I want you to make some noise for my brother Future Hendrix one time,” he said. “I want you to make some noise for my brothers the Migos one time. And if you’re having a good Coachella 2017, I want to hear you make some motherfu**ing noise.”
Then, Drizzy went on a mini solo set, starting with “Gyalchester” and continuing through the crowd pleasing “Fake Love,” which garnered heavy adoration from the screaming audience. What a time to be in Indio, Calif., indeed.
On his own, Pluto kept the hits rolling with medleys throughout. His set list included bangers like “New Level,” “X,” “Too Much Sauce,” “My Collection,” “Comin Out Strong,” and “Draco.” Often, they were performed in small bursts of energy, like a quickly-shifting playlist of smashes. Finally, he closed the set out with his latest hit, “Mask Off.”
“I thank everyone for coming out Coachella Week 1,” Hendrix said. “I hope to see y’all at Week 2. Thank y’all. Love for life. Future Hendrix. Salute all my fans in the building.”
Future returns to Coachella for the festival’s second edition next weekend. Next month, he is set to kick off his “Nobody Safe Tour” with Migos and Tory Lanez. The run starts May 4 in Memphis and ends June 30 in Las Vegas.
