Update 28/2: a second Sydney date has now been added. Details below.
J Cole has announced his first dates in Australia (and New Zealand) in three years, marking his first visit since 2014’s Rapture Tour alongside Kendrick Lamar, Eminem and Action Bronson.
The rapper dropped his fourth album 4 Your Eyez Only back in December 2016, two years to the day since his last release 2014 Forest Hills Drive. In less than three months the album – which debuted at no. 1 – has already reached platinum certification (with no features), with all ten tracks appearing on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.
His Australian shows mark the end of a mammoth 50-date international tour. The tour kick off in South Carolina this June, before visiting Europe, the UK and finally Australia, where dates are currently locked in for Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.
