Friday night, Kevin Abstract performed at his free “All-American Drive-In Prom” in Hollywood. The performance was part of a 24-hour span that saw Kevin announce the upcoming dates for his 2017 Death of a Supermodel tour while also reportedly being joined by Tyler, The Creator and The Neighbourhood. What may have been one of the biggest guest appearances of the night came courtesy of a silent Jaden Smith, who appeared onstage for a performance of “I Do (End Credits).”
A visibly entranced Smith bopped along while seated at a black table on the stage as part of the prom-themed event. Prior to the show, Smith hinted at a possible appearance by retweeting info about the scheduled performance. After the show, Kevin Abstract expressed his thanks to fans via Twitter and remarked about the diversity of his fan base. He also joked about his onstage demeanor, noting that he was “hella awkward.”

The Death of a Supermodel tour, which will also feature Bearface of Brockhampton kicks off Feb. 22, 2017 in Santa Ana, California. Based on tweets from Kevin, it appears he’ll also be performing at South by Southwest next year, although there were no further details given about his involvement in the annual music festival.
