Video: Jon Hamm, Zach Galifianakis, Chance The Rapper, Jack Antonoff Perform at Bonnaroo’s SuperJam

posted by Oscar June 14, 2015

Bonnaroo’s SuperJam is always one the key things that makes this festival special but this year it was even bigger as it was curated by Pretty Lights, Run-D.M.C.’s Darryl McDaniels and Metallica bassist Rob Trujillo, billed as an Eighties-themed “Throwback Superjam Dance Party.”

The 80’s theme got kicked off with Jon Hamm and Zach Galifianakis performing the charity anthem of the decade, “We Are The World.” Later on Chance The Rapper delivered some cool moments with his medley of covers including DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince’s “Summertime,” Biggie Small’s “Juicy,”  and later in the night covering Bell Biv Devoe’s “Poison” and Montell Jordan’s “This is How We Do It.”

Other highlights included SZA singing Michael Jackson’s “The Way You Make Me Feel” and duetting with Bleachers’ Jack Antanoff for a cover of Queen and David Bowie’s “Under Pressure,” and DMC performing some of his old Run DMC hits.

To sum it all up, this was perhaps the best and coolest party of the year (so far). Check out some clips below. Continue Reading

I’ve been looking around for footage of Chance’s set for the last few days and I just stumbled upon some footage of what I think is his first performance of his recent release, “Home Studio (Back Up In This Bitch).” It sounds awesome live. Shouts to ConcertsnStuff for capturing the footage. You can watch Chano perform “Home Studio” at the 6:00 minute mark up above.
