Xzibit Australian Tour

In news sure to thrill hip hop fans, Illusive are pleased to announce the return of hip hop heavyweight Xzibit to our shores in November. Xzibit marks his return to Australia after almost five years with a whirlwind tour that sees him cover 11 venues in a just over a fortnight, performing in Gold CoastNewcastle, Adelaide, Melbourne, Cairns, Townsville, Perth, Frankston, Traralgon, Glenorchy and Sydney.

Recognised as a true West Coast stalwart and 'one of the most respected rappers in the game' (Rolling Stone), Xzibit first came to public attention in the late '90s with his debut album 'At The Speed of Light' (1996) and '40 Dayz and 40 Nightz' (1998). He enjoyed his first major success when he joined with Snoop Dogg for the Dr. Dre produced hit Bitch Please. The Dre association continued with 'What's the Difference', 'Lolo' and 'Some L.A. Niggaz' on Dre's seminal Chronic 2001 album, which led to Xzibit's inclusion on what is arguably the most infamous hip hop tour of all time - Up in Smoke, alongside the likes of Snoop, Eminem, and Ice Cube.

In the same year, Xzibit released 'Restless', which featured club anthems 'X'and 'Get Your Walk On', and was certified platinum in the US within a matter of weeks. In 2002, Xzibit followed this up with 'Man vs. Machine' - another huge commercial success, which featured the smash 'Multiply', and 2004's 'Weapons of Mass Destruction', featuring 'Hey Now (Mean Muggin')'.

Outside of the musical realm, Xzibit was - of course - the host of MTV's wildly sucessful Pimp My Ride series from 2004 to 2007, which introduced his music to millions of new fans and made him a household name across the globe. In recent times, Xzibit is currently locked down in the studio at work on his highly anticipated comeback LP (due out in 2012).

Recognised as one of the most electrifying live hip-hop artists, with nearly two decades of classic material up his sleeve, Xzibit's return to Australian shores promises to be a night to remember for the those that get their hands on tickets.

* Tickets on sale from 31st of August.
