Kendrick Lamar throws surprise gig on moving truck

Rapper Kendrick Lamar surprised fans with an impromptu set on the back of a moving truck in Los Angeles on Tuesday night (24Mar15).

The hip-hop star alerted fans to the location of his gig an hour before the performance, writing in a post on Twitter.com, "9pm. meet me here. 8950 Sunset Blvd (Boulevard). 9.30pm. Meet me here. 8466 Melrose Ave (Avenue)."

A crowd gathered at the address, an empty parking lot, and Lamar and his band arrived on the bed of a large truck. Once the gig started, the truck pulled onto the famous Sunset Boulevard and the audience jogged behind the moving vehicle to catch the set until it finished at Melrose Avenue.

Police officers ensured the safety of the audience by following the crowd on motorcycles.
