Platinum-selling Australian hip hop artist Illy has announced The Two DegreesRegional Tour, his most extensive tour of Australia to date, kicking off this July and finishing up in late November. This tour is the first time Illy will bring his ARIA #1 album Two Degrees to regional Australia, which includes stops in Port Hedland, Launceston, Toowoomba, Cairns, Warnambool, Newcastle, Mildura and Albury (just to name a few). It follows on from his largest ever capital city tour, featuring sold-out shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane earlier this year.
Illy has a good history of regional touring, hitting the road with Groovin’ The Moo Festival twice, along with a previous regional headline tour in 2014. He’s developed a strong love of regional Australia and is pleased and excited to be getting back out to these towns and performing again after such a long absence.
Illy says he is “Really psyched to get back on the road for such a huge run. It’s been a couple years since last time, and this will be the biggest I’ve ever done. Let get loose.”
His album Two Degrees includes current single Oh My featuring Tonight Alive’s lead singer Jenna McDougall, the triple platinum ARIA Award-nominated and APRA Award-winning single Papercuts with Vera Blue, the double platinum Catch 22, acollaboration with UK powerhouse Anne-Marie and live favourite You Say When featuring Marko Penn. Two Degrees is available now.
