One performance a night in Las Vegas wasn’t enough for J. Cole this weekend. So on Friday, Oct. 25, he put on two shows. First, he was at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace with his What Dreams May Come concert—he’s one of the first hip-hop acts to perform on this stage that was once home to Celine Dion—then he moved on to Pure Nightclub where he kicked off the Halloween festivities with an after-party performance that began with “Can’t Get Enough” and included his popular hits “Work Out”, “Crokked Smile” and “Power Trip.”
This was Cole’s second time in Las Vegas in just a little more than a month. In September he was here for the iHeartRadio Music Festival at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
It has been a busy, interesting year for Cole. The rapper has spoken with students at Harvard University in an hour-long lecture entitled “The Next Move: A Conversation with J. Cole”, he won the BET Hip Hop Award for Best Impact Track for "Crooked Smile" and, last summer, “Born Sinner”, his latest album, was No. 1 on the music charts.
Cole has three more concert stops in the U.S.—San Francisco, Calif., Seattle, Wash. and West Lafayette, Ind.—before he takes his tour overseas.
