Kid Cudi: The ambitious rapper who has enlivened some of the biggest pop hits of the past few years clearly is his own man — or, on this tour, his own moon man. Cudi's show reportedly begins on a barren lunar landscape inhabited only by its space-suited star (no band, no DJ, no mouthy sidekick) with a vibe that is decidedly chill. Why? Because he can. Hard-partying fans will be happy to know that the mood eventually heats up with treatments of "Day N Nite" by Crookers, Steve Aoki's "Pursuit of Happiness" and David Guetta's "Memories." Big Sean and Logic open the show at 7:30 p.m. at AmericanAirlines Arena. $37-$143.70. 786-777-1000, AAArena.com or Ticketmaster.com.Ben Crandell
