One of the most happening rappers in contemporary music Wiz Khalifa has announced he will be making his inaugural Australian appearance in spectacular fashion, by co-headlining a one-off tour date in Melbourne with one of the other most happening rappers in contemporary music, A$AP Rocky.
In his short career, Khalifa has already released an anthology of hits capable of tearing the roof off of even the largest venues. From Black & Yellow, to the DF killer Work Hard, Play Hard to collaborations with Snoop Dogg, Maroon 5, Khalifia has an arsenal ready and willing to be unleashed at live performances.
A$AP Rocky clearly can’t keep away, already performing for his Aussie fans earlier this year in a run of sold-out headlining performances. Following the release of his international chart topper Long Live A$AP, A$AP can seriously do no wrong. Featuring a small crowd of guest artists from Florence Welch to Kendrick Lamar, Long Live A$AP will forever be filed in the annuls of hip hop as one of the most diverse and impressive albums yet.
This particular co-headlining run was tested in America to outrageous success, so Australia’s getting the quality-control version. Presale tickets on sale midday Thursday 3rd October 2013. General Public Tickets on sale 9am Tuesday 8th October 2013.
