Niche and Live Nation have announced that there will be new dates and venues for the ticket-crazed A$AP Rocky concert.
The Harlem born rapper put together his A$AP Mob, consisting of rappers and music producers. In 2011, he released his first single, Peso, from the compilation album Deep Purple. The success has meant Rocky is going to make his way down-under to host his hip-hop filled party.
Backed by the demand for tickets, the venues have be amped up so that more people can be fitted in for the concert, as well as the dates being changed.
Sydney¡¯s show is now at the Hordern Pavillion on the 28th of June (used to be at the Enmore Theatre) and Melbourne¡¯s show has moved to Festival Hall from the Palace Theatre on the 29th of June ¨C both are all-aged areas, so anyone can sign up.
Rocky will also be touring the cities of Brisbane (26th of June at The Arena) and Perth on June 27th at Metro City.
Crazed fans that already have bought their tickets can get a full refund if the changes of dates and venue have affected them.
A$AP Rocky released his Top 10 ARIA chart hit, LongLiveA$AP, featuring a blend of modern hip-hop and rap artists. The extravagant line-up of music stars included Florence Welch, Santigold, Skrillex, Kendrick Lamar, Drake and 2 Chainz. A$AP stands for ¡°¡®Always Strive and Prosper¡± or ¡®Acronym Symbolizing Any Purpose¡¯.
However unlike other rap collorabtions, Rocky has brought up the best in the modern-day Hip-Hop, and mixing it up with the indy lyricism as well as slowed down rave beats.
After performing on the Jimmy Fallon show, as well as tours with Drake, Tyga, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Kendrick Lamar and of course, the explosive Pitchfork Festival, the wave of success granted him a nomination in the BBC¡¯s influential ¡®Sound Of 2012¡¯ poll ¨C highlighting the groundbreaking efforts of musicians in the industry.
