(AUS) Live Nation and Niche have today announced the debut Australian tour for Oakland, CA emcee G-EAZY, playing select club appearances this February 2015. Dressed in black with his hair slicked back, G-Eazy adds a touch of class to hip-hop. For as traditionally dapper as he may be, he’s got both feet firmly planted in the future.
2013 saw G-Eazy complete his first headline tour, selling out shows everywhere from New York, Milwaukee, and Salt Lake City to Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Looking more like a Tarantino hero than a standard MC, he stirred up a frenzy among the heavily female crowds, dodging a bra or two from the stage on a nightly basis. From the overwhelming success of the tour Paste Magazine named G-Eazy in their top artists to watch in 2013, High Times Magazine named him the “Best New Artist of 2013,” and Lil Wayne tapped him to join the America’s Most Wanted Festival nationwide tour.
The response has only grown more fervent, with G-Eazy’s second nationwide headline tour leading to the release of his highly anticipated second full-length album “These Things Happen”, which topped the Billboard Hip-Hop/R&B and Top Rap Albums Charts, also earning the #3 spot on the Billboard 200 and the Top Digital Albums Chart.
