He returns to Australia as one of rap music's biggest superstars.

American rapper, singer and actor Joey Bada$$ has today announced his long awaited Australian tour, performing down under for the first time in over 5 years. 

The Brooklyn native will tour his latest critically acclaimed studio album 2000, across major capital cities for the first time since a pair of sold out shows in Sydney and Melbourne in 2018.

The shows kick off on Australia's West Coast, performing at Metropolis Fremantle on Wednesday 4 January. He’ll then travel east to Brisbane, playing Fortitude Music Hall on Friday 6 January, Sydney’s Enmore Theatre on Saturday 7 January, and Forum Melbourne on Sunday 8 January.

2000 was the highly anticipated sequel to his breakthrough mixtape 1999 which released 10 years earlier. The title alludes that its only been one long year of growth for Bada$$ between his present commercial success and the time he entered the scene alongside hip hop collective Pro Era.

He released his first official studio album B4.DA.$$ in 2015 before releasing his magnum opus, politically inspired and frustrated record ALL-AMERIKKKAN BADA$$. Unifying anthems reigned thick of the record, including two hits Devastated and Temptation achieving twice Platinum and Gold plaques respectively.

His last tour saw him come to Australia as one of the most exciting names on the Sugar Mountain festival line up, now he returns as one of rap music's biggest superstars.
