UPDATE: Second shows in Sydney and Melbourne have been added due to massive demand
If you missed out on tickets to the sold-out Splendour in the Grass festival in Byron to catch headliner Kendrick Lamar, then the hip hop gods have got you.
The 2018 Pulitzer Prize and twelve-time GRAMMY Award winning artist has announced a series of arena shows in Perth, Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney.
Kendrick Lamar has been touring his fourth studio album DAMN. around the UK and Europe, performing hits like ‘Loyalty’ (feat. Rihanna), ‘Love’ (feat. Zacari) and ‘Humble’, which you’ll remember took out the #1 spot on triple j’s Hottest 100.
Now he’s bringing that show to local shores to play hits from DAMN. and his multi-Platinum selling catalogue, including ‘Swimming Pools (Drank)’, ‘Bitch, Don’t Kill My Vibe’, ‘King Kunta’, ‘Alright’ and ‘i’.
His Australian success has wavered since taking the top Hottest 100 spot in January. He’s currently riding high on the ARIA charts with his #2 smash hit soundtrack album Black Panther: The Album and collaborations with SZA (‘All the Stars’), The Weeknd (‘Pray for Me’) and Skrillex (‘Humble’) – all of which charted in the Top 5.
Watch Kendrick Lamar and SZA’s clip for ‘All The Stars’ below:
We’ll leave you with a few stats to get that excitement flowing: 13 billion Spotify streams, 12 Grammy awards, over 6 million album sales worldwide, a spot on the 100 most influential people in the world by TIME Magazine, dubbed one of the best 10 rappers of all time by Billboard… convinced this is a must-see show yet?
