Let’s take it to the basics, you in the midst of greatness. Illusive and Frontier Touring are pleased to announce American rapper and international tastemaker A$AP Rocky will return this February for his first run of national headline shows taking in all capital cities. His return comes two years after his 2013/2014 visit for a run of festival dates including headlining Field Day in Sydney, Origin NYE in Perth and a one-off show at Melbourne’s Festival Hall.

The 2016 tour follows the huge international success of A$AP Rocky’s sophomore full-length album AT.LONG.LAST.A$AP (RCA Records / Sony Music Entertainment) which was released in May this year. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and at #5 on the Australian ARIA Album Chart. The 18-track release boasts an incredible list of producers – Danger Mouse, Kanye West, Mark Ronson, A$AP Yams and A$AP Rocky himself among others. It also features an impressive line-up of guest appearances (16 in total) from the likes of Rod Stewart, Miguel and Mark Ronson on ‘Everyday’, Kanye West and Joe Fox on ‘Jukebox Joints’ and ScHoolboy Q on ‘Electric Body’.

2015 has also seen A$AP Rocky feature on Selena Gomez’s international hit ‘Good For You’ whose seductive video clip has notched up a whopping 145 million views on YouTube and over 1 million sales in the US.

“It’s the perfect experiment -- a confident, well-executed one -- for a format-less, niche-happy, streaming-playlist world.” – Billboard

“A$AP Rocky ain’t a rapper, folks. Dude is a bona fide All-American rock star…” – Complex

“…as he gleefully skipped up and down its stairs, confetti raining down just three songs in, he seemed every bit the headliner that few would’ve expected a couple short years ago.” – Entertainment Weekly

A$AP Rocky is a member of the Harlem, New York hip hop collective A$AP Mob; a collective of rappers, record producers, music video directors and fashion designers who share a similar interest in music, fashion and art. A$AP Mob also includes members A$AP Ferg and the sadly recently deceased founding member A$AP Yams among others.

The collective produced the video for ‘Purple Swag’ and Rocky’s debut single ‘Peso’, the lead single from Rocky’s breakout mixtape, Live.Love.A$AP. The mixtape was released in 2011 to wild critical acclaim and captured the attention of many high-profile record labels, with A$AP Rocky going on to sign a famous deal with Polo Ground Music, RCA Records and Sony Music Entertainment, at the same time starting his own label A$AP Worldwide with long-time partner and mentor A$AP Yams. Later that year Rocky, along with Kendrick Lamar, was named as an opener for Drake’s Club Paradise Tour which saw shows played at college arenas throughout the US. Hype was building at an enormous pace.

His debut full-length effort, Long. Live. A$AP, was released in 2013 (RCA Records / Sony Music Entertainment) and shot straight to the top spot of the Billboard 200, Hip-Hop Albums, R&B Albums and Digital Albums charts and made Top 10 debuts in 24 countries. The album solidified Rocky’s new-found star status and featured huge collaborations with the likes of Drake, 2 Chainz and Kendrick Lamar on ‘F**kin’ Problems’, Skrillex and Birdy Nam Nam on ‘Wild For The Night’ and Florence Welch (Florence and the Machine) on ‘I Come Apart’.

In 2014, Rocky got the call up alongside fellow rappers Tyga, Casey Veggies and Vince Staples to star in cameo roles in the cult film Dope which premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Not only blazing trails musically as an artist, producer, collaborator, label owner and in the film sector, A$AP Rocky has also dipped his toes in the fashion game – having collaborated with visionary Raf Simons on his A$AP clothing brand.

Prior to his Australian tour dates, A$AP Rocky will see 2015 out with international tour dates throughout the US, UK, Europe and Canada with hip hop and rap royalty Tyler, The Creator, Danny Brown and Vince Staples.

One of 2016’s most anticipated tours will now reach fever pitch as 19-year-old genre-blurring hip-hop artist Raury is announced as the special guest for A$AP Rocky’s national Australian and Auckland, New Zealand dates.

Raury has emerged as one of the most electrifying and acclaimed young voices in music, with his distinctive blend of rap, soul and folk making waves the world over. The Atlanta-born artist burst onto the scene through the release of his debut mixtape ‘Indigo Child’ in August 2014 and hasn’t looked back since. Hype from ‘Indigo Child’ (and its breakthrough hits ‘Cigarette Song’ and ‘God’s Whisper’) saw Raury land spots on SBTRKT’s 2014 ‘Wonder Where We Land’, including the mammoth single ‘Higher’.

Raury made his Australian debut at this year’s Laneway Festival, with his captivating performances seeing him hailed as one of the must-see acts on the circuit. Just last week, Raury released his debut LP, All We Need, featuring the crossover singles ‘Devil’s Whisper’ and ‘Friends’ (feat. Tom Morello)’, reinforcing the common belief that he is destined for stardom.
