If you were paying close attention to your Childish Gambino Google alerts today you might be one of the few who noticed the US rapper had sneakily announced an intimate one-off Newcastle show just a few hours ago, in his addition to his appearance at Listen Out 2015.
And if you weren’t, then join the queue of disappointment because the gig is already sold out.
According to Newcastle’s Cambridge Hotel, Gambino, aka Donald Glover, will play an exclusive show at the venue on Thursday, October 1st, making this his only announced sideshow, thus far, for the Listen Out festival, due to kick off this weekend.
For the rest of us who were slow on the uptake Monday morning, or who don’t live in Newcastle, Gambino will be peddling his wares at Listen Out which kicks off this weekend in Melbourne and Perth, before moving to Sydney and Brisbane next week.
The festival has just lost an international act from its lineup, with Norwegian producer Lido announcing he is pulling the plug on his appearance at this year’s event. As of yet, no replacement act has been announced.
UPDATE 21/09/15, 5.10pm: Things are looking good if you’re in Canberra. Childish Gambino is also playing at The Academy on Friday 2nd October. See details below.
