With apologies to Bryson Tiller – who cemented his live bona fides since a heat-seeking performance at the 2016 BET Awards – we’re more excited about the opening acts for his Set It Off arena tour. Tiller has enlisted two young, cutting-edge sonic forces as openers. First: supernova-hot producer Metro Boomin. You’ve heard his work on productions for Drake and Kanye West, but he’s venturing out of the studio on the heels of collaborations with Nav and Gucci Mane, and word is that he brings the same innovative focus that he brings to bear in his studio work to live performances. New R&B singer H.E.R., meanwhile, is that rarest of phenomena in the pop world – an enigma. Only seen in shadow and silhouette, and only known by her acronym (Having Everything Revealed), she contrasts visual obscurity with total emotional rawness on her thrilling Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 albums. Anticipation is high for this first round of extensive live work from both openers. Summer’s going out with a bang.

with Bryson Tiller | 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 30 | CFE Arena, 12777 N. Gemini Blvd. | 407-823-3070 | | $37.50-$47.50
