The Walmart Arkansas Music Pavilion is one of the largest attractions in Northwest Arkansas for people of all age groups. The AMP has hosted notable performers since it was established in 2014. This year is equally exciting, as these musicians are already scheduled to visit.

In the Summer of this year, singer/songwriter Kesha will join Macklemore on a tour dubbed, The Adventures of Kesha and Macklemore. The pair will perform at over twenty different venues across the United States, one of which being the Arkansas Music Pavilion on June 25th. The news of the tour comes on the verge of the release of the duo's project Good Old Days, which climbed the music billboard rankings in the US. The news of the tour also appears subsequent to the long-awaited arrival of Macklemore's second solo-studio project. His album Gemini climbed to the No. 1 spot on the charts for Rap, R&B/Hip-Hop, and Independent Albums. Macklemore will be just the second rapper to appear at the AMP, after Travis Scott's performance on May 13th, 2017. The Seattle native has attained great success, as one of the most versatile artists. From producing loose and fun tracks such as Thrift Shop and Corner Store, to controversial projects such as White Privilege and Same Love, Macklemore's music appeals to man.

 

 

 

 

While sitting down with two freshmen at Rogers Heritage High School, twins Hudson and Thatcher Downard, the two very excited for the big names making an appearance this summer in Rogers. The two both favored Macklemore, saying that he was more appealing to their age group. Thatcher Downard said, “When Travis Scott came to the AMP, it was one of the craziest experiences of my life. There were so many of my friends there, and it seemed like everyone there was either a Mounite, War Eagle, or Tiger. There was so much hype surrounding the event, and La Flame (Travis Scott) definitely lived up to those expectations.” Both of the twins agreed that Macklemore probably wont be as crazy of an experience, but that he can still put on a great show. As Macklemore, Niall Horan, and Charlie Puth continue throughout their respective tours, the exhilarating anticipation continues to build in Northwest Arkansas.
