Common is getting ready to release his tenth studio album on Tuesday, July 22nd when Nobody’s Smiling finally hits the streets. That’s not all that the hip-hop superstar has to look forward to, with a big album release concert scheduled to take place in New York City the night of Monday, July 21st. What makes the Nobody’s Smiling album release show such a big deal is that it is not only a free concert, but it will also be live streamed on the internet via Yahoo! as part of their new Yahoo! Live project in conjunction with Live Nation.
For those who want to be in the building for the Nobody’s Smiling NYC release concert, the scene will be set at the Gramercy Theatre in Manhattan. Admission is free, but attendees will need to secure a wristband prior to the concert in order to gain entry.
