Set time was 6pm to 6:55pm. José soundchecked with a guitar but never played it. He posted later that evening on Instagram: Thank you Chicago that was dope!!! I wish I could’ve played longer I didn’t even get to play my guitar!! But you showed love. Thank you for helping to honor the great Billie Holiday, a fearless leader who championed for equal rights + change in the face of brutality #blacklivesmatter https://instagram.com/p/7O0SePxDN0/
