Kanye West will play two Big Day Out 2012 sideshows in January, one in Sydney and one in Melbourne. West visited Australia earlier in the year for the 2011 Splendour In The Grass festival but only played the one headline slot at the festival before heading home.
Big Day Out organisers have received criticism for re-hashing festival acts like Kanye who had already played at other Australian festivals in 2011.
Kanye West last toured Australia in 2008 on the ‘Glow In The Dark’ tour which featured special guest, Nas.
