Third time will hopefully be the charm for hip hop star T.I., with the announcement that he will make his way to Australia later this year alongside rapper DMX for a joint headline tour along the east coast.
This tour follows two previous cancellations from the Atlanta rapper who was to be a headliner for the ill-fated Supfest 2013 before organisers pulled the pin on the event just days before its scheduled kick-off.
Similarly, his October 2013 joint dates with Akon and French Montana and later addition Bridgette Kelly, as a part of Planetroc’s Episode One tour, was cancelled due to clashes with T.I.’s US tour dates. Interestingly, the promoter for these December 2014 Australian tour dates is listed as Karma Promotions, who, according to Facebook, have merged pages with Supafest.
The Grammy-winning star did manage to get down here last month for a whirlwind two-day visit to promote his latest studio album Paperwork, but these will be his first Australian tour dates and will be DMX’s second visit to Australia.
Together T.I. and DMX will be performing three Australian shows, starting with Melbourne’s Festival Hall on Friday 12th December, followed by Sydney’s Qantas Credit Union Arena on Saturday, 13th December and Brisbane’s Marquee at RNA showgrounds on Sunday, 14th December.
Tickets for the Melbourne show are currently listed on Ticketmaster and on the Festival Hall websites. Ticket details for Sydney and Brisbane have yet to be confirmed, however Qantas Credit Union Arena have told Music Feeds that tickets for the Sydney leg will soon be available on Ticketek. The vendor for the Brisbane event has not been officially announced.

UPDATE 11/12/14: T.I. and DMX’s joint Australian tour has been postponed. Karma Promotions and One Stop have said the postponement is “due to circumstances beyond our control”, and will have updates shortly.
