Run the Jewels roam around Madison Square Garden as surreal scenes unfold across New York City in the group's mysterious "Call Ticketron" video.
The clip opens with a comical RTJ3 news report teasing "strange weather patterns" throughout the city. From there, it cuts to Killer Mike and El-P walking backstage at the Garden to rapturous applause. When they walk back out for an encore, they discover that the audience has vanished. Meanwhile, a series of threats – falling meteors, mutant spiders, UFOs – loom outside.
"Call Ticketron" highlights the rap duo's third LP, 2016's Run the Jewels 3. The group, which recently concluded a massive 2017 tour, will kick off a leg of Australian dates in January followed by a supporting slot on Lorde's North American spring tour.
Last week, Run the Jewels earned their first Grammy nomination (for Best Rap Song) with "Chase Me," a collaboration with Danger Mouse and Big Boi from the Baby Driver soundtrack.
