Separate tour announcements for five of the biggest acts in the world — Kanye West, Lady Gaga, Robbie Williams, Katy Perry and Justin Timberlake — are set to be announced within the next 30 days after Ticketek today teased “five mega announcements” and dropped hints as to who the performers were.
Late this afternoon the ticketing outlet shared an image of 5 silhouettes (now deleted) with the phrase “Countdown to the hottest performers – 5 mega announcements in 30 days” on their Facebook wall. Eager fans were quick to speculate, many correctly guessing the acts.
The image has since been pulled from the page, perhaps because of the ease with which the performers were identified, and a little internet super sleuthing has now uncovered the images that the sihouettes were created from, revealing Kanye, Gaga, Williams, Perry and Timberlake as the acts set to be announced. Check out our nifty little GIF below.
A Justin Timberlake Australian tour announcement has been in the pipeline since May last year, when the official Timberlake website announced that Australian tour dates would be announced soon.
Kanye West hasn’t visited Australia since 2012, as part of the Big Day Out lineup. On that trip he played the east coast legs of the festival, as well as headline dates in Sydney and Melbourne, but failed to make the trek to Adelaide or Perth. West’s current Yeezus tour has been his biggest to date — rapping atop mountains, support slots from Kendrick Lamar and cameos from the son of God during Jesus Walks.
Check out the setlist and footage from the first show of the Yeezus tour below, and get keen – we should know when we’ll get to see the show for ourselves within 30 days.
