Common Tickets - Common Tour Dates

Common Schedule

Whether it's the Arena Theatre in Houston, House of Blues in Anaheim or any of the other top-tier venues that Common might show up at, this is just one of those bands that you have to see up close and personal sooner or later if you're a hip-hop fan. Head out and see what all of the excitement is about by snagging a few seats, which will bring you to the forefront of the action as Common looks to rock the stage once again at a venue near you. As everyone has been to one of his shows knows, Common is anything but common.

But all easy clichés aside, Common is one of the most unique hip-hop artists out there, as he's much more than a rapper sipping Crystal and talking about the high life. Common is as much of a poet as he is a musician, and he even has been in a few movies to boot to show that here's a guy whose talented reach across many different faces of life. Once you're there in the stands with your fellow music lovers, you'll be glad that you're not anywhere else.

Common Trivia

Do you know that Common has actually appeared in 19 different movies over the years?

Not even including television, which he currently stars on Hell on Wheels, Common has been around the block when it comes to the cinema, appearing in movies as diverse as Smokin' Aces to Happy Feet Two. You never know when you're going to see Common pop up, because he's a chameleon on the screen and is known for being able to play a wide variety of roles. In recent years, he's even been appearing in up to three different movies per year, though that hasn't stopped him from heading out and continuing to hit the stage to bring one of his original passions, music, to all of his dedicated fans.

Common Background

Common originally worked under the name Common Sense, and grew up on the South Side of Chicago, rising through the hip-hop community to become one of the best-known underground rap stars of the '90s. His debut album as Common was released in 1997 and featured big names, including Lauryn Hill, Q-Tip, De la Soul, Erykah Badu and more. In the last decade, he's moved from being a forerunner of underground hip-hop to a major voice in the rap community, bringing everything from politics to heartbreak and drama to his listeners through stunning flows and beats.

Common Hit Albums

With 10 studio albums under his belt and too many big-time hits to name without breaking cleanly with brevity, Common is just one of those rare artists who always seems to be heading to a stage somewhere nearby – even if it's a short road trip away. It all started back in the early 1990s with "Can I Borrow a Dollar?" and it was history from there. He followed that acclaimed album with "Resurrection," "One Day It'll Make Sense" and "Like Water for Chocolate," though he also didn't stop once he got the attention and acclaim from that blistering album.

Common would go on to collaborate with artists like Kanye West and plenty of others, eventually leading him to two Grammy Awards and too many other accolades to mention. And if you think Common is slowing down, you're way off, as this is a talented actor/musician/poet who isn't done making his mark on the entertainment scene.

Common Concert Experience

There has never been a better time to head out to a great concert loaded with moments that you'll be talking about well after it's over. Sure, there are plenty of ways to listen to music these days, but it's a completely different experience to actually be there so you can feel the pulse of the crowd and watch your favorite musician take the stage for an unforgettable concert experience. And that holds doubly true for a rap legend like Common, a musician whose clever lyrics and wicked tracks have helped make him a staple of the music scene over the years.

Common also definitely knows a things or two about connecting with a live audience, making it always a good idea to put down the remote and head out for a night of music that will have you reaching for the playlist as soon as you get home. The concert experience is nothing short of unbelievable, as any fan can attest, but it's still something that you have to get immersed in if you want to truly appreciate. When a great rapper like Common takes to the stage, the energy will be nothing short of unbelievable, giving you plenty of reasons to click off the sound system and head out to see it all happen before your very eyes as Common looks to put on yet another great show for their dedicated fan base.
