In 2016, 19-year-old Indonesian rapper Rich Brian (formerly known as Rich Chigga) released his viral debut single ‘Dat $tick’. Last year Rich Brian sold out his first ever Australian shows within a mater of hours; and now he’s coming back for four headline dates.
Playing his biggest theatres yet, Rich Brian kicks off his Australian tour next month at Metro City in Perth on Thursday, August 29 before heading to Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Auckland in New Zealand.
Tickets for all shows go on sale at 2pm Friday, July 19.
Rich Brian: ‘What Do You See’
Rich Brian is touring his upcoming LP The Sailor, which he has dubbed “a symbol of being an explorer”.
Brian was homeschooled in Indonesia, before he moved to the US at the age of 17. He soon began collaborating with the likes of 21 Savage, Offset, and Playboi Carti. His debut project Amen, released in February 2018, garnered widespread critical acclaim and topped the iTunes Hip-Hop charts – a first in history for an Asian musician.
Two years later, Rich Brian is exploring more uncharted territory.
“It’s my own story as well as the story of all immigrants that brave new worlds for a chance at something better,” he says of The Sailor.
The Sailor is due for release on July 26 via 88rising, exclusively distributed by 12 Tone. Pre-order it here.
