Although they’ve been here many times before, both the Wu-Tang Clan and Nas have announced a co-headline tour of Australia, part of the wider NY State of Mind tour that has been tracking the globe since last year.
With songs like ‘Gravel Pit’ and ‘The World Is Yours’ between them, looking for these hip hop legends to put on the biggest rap show of the year as they stop by Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney before hopping on over to Europe and then back to the US to wrap up the tour, which so far has been a massive success.
The potential for on-stage collaborations with multiple rap icons in the building is something Australia has really never seen before. This places the NY State of Mind tour as essential for hip-hop fans and those who appreciate the pure, raw lyricism that saw these acts become major stars during hip hop’s formative years.
From Method Man to Inspectah Deck, reportedly the entire Wu-Tang Clan will be making the trip down under, right alongside Nas, who just finished wrapped up his King’s Disease trilogy the universal acclaim.
Friday, May 12 – Entertainment Centre, Brisbane
Saturday, May 13 – Qudos Bank Arena, Sydney
Sunday, May 14 – Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne
