One of the most iconic all-female hip hop outfits to survive the ’80s, Salt N Pepa have announced yet another tour of Australia. Their last Down Under trip was only back in 2011 so it hasn’t been too long between drinks for fans, but we don’t hear anyone complaining.
For more than 25 years, Salt N Pepa have continued to inspire countless of successors. From the moment they burst onto the airwaves, the duo have had an immeasurable impact on modern female MCs, and demonstrated via a cool 15 million album sales worldwide that the ladies are just as good as the dudes.
Salt N Pepa were also the first female hip hop crew to win a Grammy, and were one of the few rappers selected to perform on the zeitgeist penetrating Oprah Winfrey Show.
This November the pair will be bringing their internationally lauded high-voltage live performance to us, sure to be jam packed with era-defining classics such as Let’s Talk About Sex, Shoop, Whatta Man and Tramp. And while Australians might be accustomed to their dynamic performance, this time round Salt N Pepa will also be stopping off in NZ for the first time in 15 years!
Tickets for Sydney and Melbourne on sale Monday, 1st July, all the rest on sale Monday, 15th July.
