Tickets go on sale to the general public on Tuesday, July 2nd at 10am local time. The Telstra pre-sale begins on Friday, June 28th at 10am local time, while the Promoter, Venue, and Ticketek pre-sales begins on Monday, July 1st at 10am local time.

Formed in 1985, Chuck D and Flavor Flav have been two of the loudest voices in hip hop over the past four decades. They were honoured in 2013 with induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Public Enemy’s impact has extended far beyond music, with the hip hop group being at the forefront of the fight against racial injustice and inequality in the US and beyond, using their powerful platform for good.

They’ll be joined on their Australian tour by local hip hop duo A.B. Original, who have a lot in common with their upcoming touring mates.

The duo of Briggs and Trials have used their music to address racial, societal, and systemic injustice in Australia, and the Indigenous artists have proudly spoken up for the First Nations people in their songs.
