Jhene Aiko was supposed to be touching down in Australia back in October to perform at Soulfest. Unfortunately the festival was canned only a couple weeks out, meaning that all dates – including sideshows – were cancelled.
Luckily, she’s now announced an even bigger Australian tour kicking off in February 2016. Realistically it’s a far better deal, considering she’s now taking on dates in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth AND Brisbane. A masterful performer and talented, sensual singer/producer/songwriter, Aiko has drawn comparisons to everyone from Aaliyah to The Weeknd, and has collaborated with big names like Drake, Kanye West and Miguel. At just 27, the songstress has become something of a legend in her own right – especially when you consider that her triple-Grammy-nominated debut album Souled Out came out just over a year ago.
Signed to Def Jam Records imprint Atrium, Souled Out put her squarely on the map, immediately establishing Aiko as one of the most exciting upcoming voices in R&B. Blending rock instrumentation with seductive soul, electronic elements and more, her music is as diverse as it is immersive – and we could not be more excited that she’s announced this tour.
Jhene Aiko Tour dates:
Monday Feb 29: Enmore Theatre, Sydney
Tues March 1: The Forum, Melbourne
Thurs March 3: The Tivoli, Brisbane
Sat march 5: Metro City, Perth
