Seth Sentry Hits a #HalfSentry

Aussie MC Seth Sentry has been smashing it out on the road since June in support of his second album, Strange New Past, and has now added another show, bringing his total number of shows in the tour to fifty, or what he is calling a whopping ‘half Sentry’.

Originally announced as a 48-show tour, already an ambitious undertaking, Seth shows his fans some more love in adding a 50th show to the tour, despite admitting to Triple J’s Zan Rowe recently that he was on his “third prescription of antibiotics,” and that he had “been through a bunch of those cold and flu meds” – overall, he says, he’s “doing good.”

‘Good’ seems to be an understatement as Seth’s tour surpasses Hilltop Hoods’ 20+ date Cosby Sweater tour of last year, as well as Bliss N Eso’s huge Circus Under The Stars run – combined.

Seth Sentry’s Strange New Past album has been at the forefront of Australian hip hop lovers’ attentions of late with singles Run, Hell Boy and his most recent single, Dumb.

The 50th show for his Strange New Past Tour rounds off with an up-close-and-personal performance at Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory on Tuesday, 22nd September.

It will be the rapper’s first Sydney metro show since his Come Together headline appearance in 2015. Seth’s tour is now undisputedly the biggest tour in Aussie hip hop history. In the past three months, he’s clocked up over 20 thousand kilometres jetting back and forth across the country, and has spent over 58 hours on stage.

An amazing feat especially for a homesick, self-declared Xbox-and-fridge-lover. Seth recently told Howl and Echoes: “I always miss home… I just wanna be there all the time. And I love my bed, I love my Xbox, my fridge. It’s a good fridge!” I hope his fridge has ice cold drinks waiting for him at home, since he has been “sleeping in different hotel rooms with shit fridges,” the past few months.

Tickets are on sale Thursday September 10 via Moshtix, so if you’re Sydneyside (or up for the road trip) grab your tickets before they’re gone.
