Kendrick Lamar Has Announced An Australian Tour for 2016!

Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar is making his return to Australia, with this morning’s announcement that King Kunta himself has joined the 2016 Bluesfest lineup and will also play two of his own headline shows next March.

Massive news was announced today as the one and only Kendrick Lamar joins the BluesFest line-up for 2016. Along with that, he’s added two headlining sideshows in both Sydney and Melbourne.


The last time I saw Kendrick Lamar perform live was in Sydney at the Enmore Theatre in 2012, and even though the show was completely sold out (obviously), the capacity of people who showed up that night stretched beyond the opening doors. It was beyond crazy. I can’t imagine what his new shows will be like, but I’m very much looking forward to seeing it.

These shows will be his first Australian shows since the release of his acclaimed latest album “To Pimp a Butterfly”.

Gah! I’m so excited for this.

I have no doubts that both these shows will sell out. Set your alarms and Good Luck!
