Bonnaroo Saturday pics (RHCP, Chance, The Front Bottoms, the Superjam & more)
Bonnaroo continued on Saturday (6/10) with sets from Red Hot Chili Peppers, Chance the Rapper, Future Islands, The Front Bottoms, Tegan & Sara, Flume, Tory Lanez, Michael Kiwanuka, Hannibal Buress, Lucy Dacus, and more. One of the highlights of the day was the annual Superjam, which was curated this year by Preservation Hall Jazz Band, and featured Chance, Margo Price, Nicole Atkins, Jon Batiste, and George Porter Jr., among others. Billboard reports:
Following performances of TLC’s “Waterfalls,” Prince’s “Little Red Corvette” and Rick James’ “Superfreak” (Lecrae also stopped by for an inspired riff on A Tribe Called Quest’s “Can I Kick It?”), Chance ended the night with a quick cover of Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg’s “Nuthin’ but a G Thang,” and then a prolonged take on Outkast’s “Hey Ya!”
Calling Andre 3000 “one of the funkiest ever,” Chance brought a handful of the Superjam artists back onstage for the Outkast smash as passerby sprinted to the This Tent stage to get a closer look at Chance. The Chicago MC has earned the nickname “the mayor of Bonnaroo” after now appearing at four consecutive festivals.
