Hip hop four-piece Far East Movement will play a free show at the Rialto Theatre tonight, thanks to Tucson's Hot 98.3 FM, which is sponsoring the event.
The show is a brief stop-over during their tour of the western U.S. through the rest of February before the band takes off to Japan for a single show in Tokyo. After forming in L.A. in 2003, the band gained its initial fame in 2006 when their song "Round Round" was featured in Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. Four years later, their single "Like a G6" topped the Billboard Hot 100 and iTunes charts.
As advertised, the show is 100 percent free, and all attendees need for admission is a way to get inside the doors when they open at 7 p.m. If you're feeling lucky, you can listen to the radio station throughout the day for details on winning meet-and-greet passes.
