Renowned Brooklyn-based hip hop artist Talib Kweli is bringing his Radio Silence Tour to Missoula in 2018. The MC earned his stripes as one of the most lyrically-gifted, socially aware and politically insightful rappers to emerge in the last 20 years.

“I’m a touring artist. I’m an artist that’s internationally known. I’m not just a local artist at this point in my career. I’m cognizant of the fact that what I do is beyond where it started. I’m trying to reach the apex of where I am now, but without turning my back on or dismissing what I’ve done before.”

Niko Is will open and the show is set for Friday, March 2nd at the Top Hat. Tickets are $25 in advance and $28 the day of the show. There is a presale this Thursday, December 14th from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. online only. General on sale is Friday, December 15th at 10 a.m. at the Top Hat, by calling 877-987-6487 and online.
