Frontier Touring and Illusive are thrilled to confirm that Canadian hip-hop superstar Drake will be performing headline shows in Australia and New Zealand for the very first time; playing Auckland, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane while in Australia to headline Future Music Festival in summer 2015. In further exciting news, 2 Chainz will be kicking off the night as Drake’s very special guest.
For the past few years, Drake has sat at the nucleus of the worldwide rap and R&B worlds. It’s hard to think of another artist in recent history who has so successfully ridden the lines between out-and-out international megastar and critical darling. While regularly topping the Billboard Chart and arenas worldwide, he also tops Pitchfork lists and is so staunchly followed by blogs, critics and the internet in general that he has almost become a human meme. And for good reason – he has released some of the most cutting edge, relatable, anthemic, profound, impossible-to-categorise music this side of the millennium. The man is a once-in-a-generation phenomenon.
The Toronto-raised rapper’s list of admirers and collaborators is second to none: he has collaborated with the cream of the music industry including Beyoncé, Jay Z, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and Kanye West.
Having recently toured the United States on the ‘Drake vs Lil Wayne’ co-headline tour, Drake brings with him an extensive production that is nothing short of spectacular with a show that includes pyrotechnics, fire, lasers, extensive lighting, sound systems and so much more.
Renowned for one of the biggest live productions by a hip hop artist – this show is going to be huge!
Drake’s first trip to New Zealand will be talked about for many years to come. Make sure you grab tickets before they sell out!
