Pre-eminent hip hop luminaries A Tribe Called Quest will be heading down under in August, for what has been described as their first ever tour of the Southern Hemisphere. Celebrating the twentieth anniversary of the release of their critically acclaimed debut album, People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm, the tour will include all original members of the group.
With no doubt, A Tribe Called Quest are the biggest, most seminal hip-hop group in history, with legions of fans all over the world. Originating in 1985, the group signed to Jive Records and released five studio albums from 1989 – 1998 before disbanding. Since 2004 the trio have reformed to play a handful of shows across the US including the 2006 Bumbershoot festival in Seattle and the 2004 and 2008 Rock The Bells shows.
Having rarely played together over the past twelve years, A Tribe Called Quest will be hitting our shores with all the original members to make hip-hop history as they play their first ever Australian shows. These select shows will be an absolute must for all hip-hop fans as we witness one of the most respected and charismatic acts in the world performing in what is sure to be the shows everyone is talking about for years to come.
