Australia, prepare to get funked, because US rapper Hopsin is coming Down Under and bringing along some of his partners in rhyme from the Funk Volume roster: Dizzy Wright, Jarren Benton & DJ Hoppa.
The Funk Volume 2015 Tour will hit our shores this December, and though the full suite of dates has not yet been officially unveiled, Music Feeds can confirm that Hopsin and his artillery of awesomeness will be performing at least five shows, in Melbourne, Eatons Hill (Brisbane), Sydney, Adelaide and Perth.
The whirlwind tour, running from Wednesday 16th December through til Monday 21st December, sees the hip-hop all stars criss-cross state lines into a new capital city every day except for Saturday the 19th, which seems to be a curious gap in the touring itinerary.
We’d hazard a bet it means that the fellas have something special planned for that Saturday (because touring artists pretty much never schedule touring down time for a Saturday. Not in this country, not no how!), and we’ll be sure to keep you updated with any new info as it develops.
Having just released his 4th album Pound Syndrome after announcing his retirement from rap and plans to relocate to Australia, neither of which ever actually happened, Hopsin is at least coming back to see us for a brief visit.
Tickets to the MC’s 2015 Funk Volume Tour go on sale from this Friday, 21st August at 9AM AEST. Check out the dates and ticketing details we’ve ferreted out so far, below.
