He’s currently the midst of riding a tidal wave of acclaim and praise, American hip hop singer Chance the Rapper is set to play his first Australian headline shows this January.
Already announced for Field Day and Beyond The Valley festivals, Chance brings his vibrant rhymes and jazz-tinged, retro beats to Sydney’s Big Top on January 3 before taking over Melbourne’s Festival Hall the following evening – January 4.
Tickets for both shows will go on sale at 10am this Thursday, October 27.
Telstra Thanks is bringing an exciting pre-sale just for Telstra customers from 10am Monday, October 24 until 10am Wednesday, October 26. For more information on how to purchase, visit: telstra.com/music.
2016 saw the surprise release of Colouring Book, an independently released, streaming only mix tape featuring Justin Bieber, Kanye West and Future.
Critically acclaimed and played more than 57 millions times, it’s the first album to crack the Billboard Charts on streams alone, peaking at number 8, a stunning end result for a kid who recorded his first mix tape #10Day while suspended from high school.
Currently one of hip-hops most sought after collaborators, Chance is responsible for five tracks off Kanye West’s The Life Of Pablo including ‘Famous’ and ‘Ultralight Beam’ as well guest appearances with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Lil B and Skrillex.
Kanye said it best when describing Chance “we are standing in front of the future.
