With just six weeks until A$AP Rocky touches down for his debut Australian tour, Niche and Live Nation announce that A$AP Mob member A$AP Ferg will perform a highly anticipated support slot in each city of A$AP Rocky’s near-sold-out tour.
Due to A$AP Rocky’s US Radio show commitments and overwhelming demand for tickets, Niche & Live Nation announce new dates and venues for the Harlem, New York MC’s debut tour of Australia. Due to an immense reaction on presale, A$AP Rocky’s Sydney and Melbourne shows are now changing dates and upsizing to the Hordern Pavillion (was Saturday 29th June at Enmore Theatre) and Festival Hall (was Friday 28th June at Palace) venues to cope with the demand – both of these shows are licensed and all ages. Ticket holders can receive a full refund from point of purchase should this rescheduling affect them and all currently purchased tickets are valid for the new shows/venues.
Please note the new onsale date for Melbourne is 9am Wednesday 6th March, whereas Brisbane, Perth and Sydney remain unchanged at 9am Thursday 28th February.
Following hot on the heels of sold out tours by Kendrick Lamar, Tyga, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and the announcement of the Nas co-curated Movement Festival, Niche and Live Nation are proud to present the debut Australian tour of one of the hottest properties in Rap right now, A$AP Rocky.
Released in January this year, his top #10 ARIA debut album - LongLiveA$AP - defies categorisation, standing out amongst the pack as the document of where Rap and Hip Hop culture is headed. A blurry mix of lyricism, slowed down rave synths and featuring a star studded line-up of guests including Florence Welch, Santigold, Skrillex and rap contemporaries Kendrick Lamar, Drake, 2 Chainz and more, LongLiveA$AP is unavoidable in the clubs and on the street.
In 2007 the Harlem born and bred rapper, Rocky, assembled his A$AP Mob consisting of rappers, producers and music video directors (A$AP having mutliple meanings including ‘Always Strive and Prosper’, ‘Assassinating Snitches and Police’ and ‘Acronym Symbolizing Any Purpose’). In 2011 the compilation Deep Purple was released followed by Peso, his first official single which quickly gained airplay on Hot 97. He was immediately snapped up, signed by Sony and released the LiveLongA$AP mixtape to critical acclaim. This success was not just US based, with A$AP Rocky’s efforts being noticed across the pond as he was shortlisted in the BBC’s influential ‘Sound Of 2012’ poll.
Following tours with Drake and Kendrick Lamar and performing at the 2012 Pitchfork Festival, A$AP Rocky performed on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and remixed Rihanna’s Cockiness (which was also performed at the MTV Video Music Awards).
Transcending art, fashion and music, demand for A$AP Rocky in Australia is reaching boiling point and this tour is destined to sell-out.
Don’t miss A$AP Rocky when he touches down in Australia this June.
