Kung Fu Kenny stans rejoice and mark July as the month of 2018. The one and only Kendrick Lamar has just announced an Australian arena tour for DAMN. So you unlucky ducks can finally wipe away your Splendour ticket-less tears.
The DAMN. tour will see a hip-hop great hitting all the major cities, sans Hobart, Darwin, and Canberra. Because, let’s face it… Hobart, Darwin, and Canberra. Expect to witness all the latest hits being bumped, ie. ‘Humble’, ‘Loyalty’, ‘Love’, some classic hits being brought out for your pleasure, ie. ‘King Kunta’, ‘M.A.A.D. City’, ‘Swimming Pools (Drank)’, and some unexpected slappers, ie. ‘King’s Dead’, ‘All the Stars’, ‘Pray For Me’.
The talent of a generation has not been keeping idle. In addition to touring everywhere else, and planning for an epic headlining Byron parkland performance, K Dot has also been dominating the Billboard charts, copping a casual Pulitzer Prize, Grammy nominations and awards, gracing us lowly mortals with the existence of the ever-so-tight Black Panther soundtrack, and oh yeah, winning Triple J’s Hottest 100.
Tickets hit general sale on Monday the 30th of April here, with the touring dates below. Get on it.
Perth Arena – Tuesday 10th of July
Rod Laver Area – Friday 13th of July
