As we roll closer to the end of the year, the first few months of 2023 keep coming through with big-ticket Australian tours from some of the world’s most exciting acts. We’ve already got national shows locked in for the likes of Red Hot Chilli Peppers & Post Malone, Elton John, Arctic Monkeys, and Bon Iver, now it seems Brooklyn rapper Joey Bada$$ is adding his name to the fold. The Pro Era rapper, cut from the same cloth as the likes of J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar – who is prepping his own trip down under for the end of this year – will kick off the new year with a Joey Bada$$ Australia tour, spanning four theatre shows across Fremantle, Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne.

His first visit to our sparkling shores in five years, the emcee, known for being one of the most ferocious young emcees to come up in the same era as A$AP Rocky and Danny Brown, will be mostly pushing his third studio album 2000 – released just a few months ago. Although we’re expecting the set list to take a bit of a greatest hits approach, given Joey hasn’t been out for a while, so fans can expect to hear pearlers like ‘No. 99,’ ‘Devastated,’ ‘Christ Conscious,’ and ‘Survival Tactics.’

Released in July, 2000 is the follow-up to Joey’s classic mixtape 1999 which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year and has for the past decade been hailed by rap fans as one of the finest examples of a relatively young rapper adding a vital twist to golden-era hip hop without compromising on credibility. The new album, so far well-received by various online reviews, features guest appearances from Westside Gunn, Diddy, Chris Brown, and more.

The Joey Bada$$ Australian tour – backed by Illusive Presents and Frontier Touring – will kick off at Metropolis in Fremantle on Wednesday, January 4th before the emcee heads on over to Brisbane’s Fortitude Music Hall, Sydney’s Enmore Theatre (which will be the tour’s only ‘All Ages’ show) and Melbourne’s Forum.
