Maneskin played a cover of Kendrick Lamar‘s 2017 hit "HUMBLE" at their show at Madison Square Garden on Thursday night (September 21)
The band recently kicked off their "RUSH!" world tour, which will see them play shows in the UK, Europe, North America, Asia and, for the first time in their career so far, Australia.
“We cannot be the last rock band… but maybe we can be the first rap band,” frontman Damiano David said to introduce the band’s rockier take on the track.
Earlier in the tour, the 2021 Eurovision winners covered Blur’s 1994 Britpop hit "Girls & Boys" as well as Paolo Nutini‘s "Iron Sky".
“When we decided on the setlist for this tour, we created the whole thing and then we saw it and said ‘Oh my God, there’s just one cover’. We really like doing covers so we want to thank Blur for writing this beautiful song. Ladies and gentlemen, "Girls & Boys",” said the band’s front man to the crowd while introducing the iconic track.
On the tour’s opening night, they also debuted a new song, "The Driver".
The "RUSH!" world tour is set to continue until December, where it will conclude with the band’s first ever show in Manchester, at the AO Arena.
