Kendrick Lamar's 'The Big Steppers Tour,' will be streamed live around the world on the Amazon Prime platform this weekend.
this week, Amazon Studios announced that the Compton rapper's sold-out show at the Accor Arena in Paris, France will be streamed exclusively on Amazon Music and Prime Video this Sunday (October 22nd).
The concert will commemorate the 10 year anniversary of Lamar's debut album, 'good kid m.A.A.d city.'
The triple-platinum record won Lamar several Grammy nominations after it dropped in 2012 and this week it was announced that the project was the all-time best charting studio album from the genre of hip hop.
It has remained in the USA's Billboard 200 charts to this day since its release.
The streaming of Kendrick's current world tour will allow fans to see the inner workings of the show on the road, which includes 65 dates globally.
The tour comes after Kendrick dropped his latest studio album, 'Mr. Morale and The Big Steppers,' this year.
'good kid m.A.A.d city'
It has already worked its way through the United States and currently in Europe. It will also visit the UK and conclude with a visit Australia and then New Zealand on December 16th and 17th of this year.
Prime Video have announced that fans of Kendrick will be able to watch the webcast for free in over 240 different countries. It will stream live on the Amazon Music channel and app as well as Twitch, beginning at 2pm ET this Sunday.
The gig will be available to view afterwards through Prime Video on demand.

Tim Hinshaw, head of R&B and hip-hop for Amazon Music, commented on the announcement in the statement.
“As a kid from the west side of Compton, hearing good kid, m.A.A.d city for the first time and seeing Kendrick’s journey from neighborhood hero to global superstar ignited a fire in me that I’m forever grateful for,' Hinshaw said.
'It showed me that no matter where you start in life, hard work and dedication will put you where you hope and dream to be,” the head of music explained.
“Now, 10 years later, it’s almost poetic that two kids from the same city with similar, but different dreams have landed in Paris to celebrate not just that record but Kendrick's latest revolutionary album, Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers,' he added.
'We’re honored to sponsor this tour and bring this show to fans around the world.”
