An all-star cast will pay tribute to the late Mac Miller at the end of the month at the Greek Theatre. The cast will include those who Miller collaborated with in music, friends, and associates in music.
The “Mac Miller: A Celebration of Life” concert will feature acts like Anderson .Paak, Thundercat, Childish Gambino, Travis Scott, Vince Staples, and more. They will help bring the house down on Halloween night, while assisting with the launch of the Mac Miller Circles Fund (MMCF).
Miller passed away last month from a drug overdose. He has struggled with substance abuse in the past, and even spoke about it in his music. For example, in his song ‘Self Care’ from his newest album, Swimming, Miller referenced his DUI and arrest back in May, ‘That Mercedes drove me crazy, I was speedin’ / Somebody save me from myself, yeah / Tell them they can take that bullsh– elsewhere / Self care, we gonna be good / Hell yeah, they lettin’ me go.’ In the music video for the same song, he carved the words ‘Memento mori’ into a lid of a coffin – which in latin means ‘remember you have to die’.
I just wanna go on tour

Miller was set to go on a 26-day tour towards the end of this month in San Francisco, but that got cancelled following his unexpected death.
Tickets for the tribute concert started selling today via MMCF.
