Due to the ongoing conditions surrounding COVID-19, Stormzy’s HITH tour has been postponed. There is good news though, we were able to reschedule the dates for November and December! Statement from Stormzy below:
“I was seriously looking forward to bringing the #HITH world tour to Australia and New Zealand and playing some epic sold-out shows however, due to the evolving health and travel concerns surrounding the Coronavirus, I’m regrettably having to reschedule this leg of the tour.
The good news is we were able to reschedule the dates for this coming November and December so I’ll be seeing you before the end of the year.
All info can be found at Handsometours.com - stay safe and I can’t wait to see you all soon”
All previously purchased tickets will be honoured at the new shows. Visit https://bit.ly/Stormzy_AUS for more information, and stay safe and take care of each other!
Astral People, Handsome Tours and triple j are thrilled to announce that UK rap phenomenon Stormzy will be returning to Australian shores for an epic national tour in 2020. Having announced his upcoming album Heavy Is The Head, out December 13, Stormzy will perform his biggest shows to date in Perth, Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne & Brisbane this coming May.
The announcement follows a whirlwind year for Stormzy around the globe, which has seen him headline Glastonbury Festival, appear on the cover of Time Magazine and — just this week — inspire a 236 per cent spike in youth voter registration in the UK following a social media post pledging his support for British opposition leader, Jeremy Corbyn.
The visit represents Stormzy’s first national run of Australian headline performances since his 2017 tour, which saw him sell out two Enmore Theatres in Sydney, two Forums in Melbourne, Thebarton Theatre in Adelaide and Metro City in Perth — not to mention his unforgettable appearance at Splendour In The Grass.
The tour will celebrate his soon-to-be-released sophomore album, Heavy Is The Head — executively produced entirely by Stormzy himself; showcasing his world-class lyricism and musicality alongside many of his celebrated and relatable subject matters. The album also features additional vocals from some of the most exciting musicians of this generation all of whom have been hand-picked by Stormzy including, (alphabetical order) Aitch, Burna Boy, Ed Sheeran, HeadieOne, H.E.R., Tiana Major9 and YEBBA with production from Fred Gibson, Fraser T Smith, T-Minus and others.
Stormzy’s realness and encouragement to ‘Speak Your Truth’ has given grime a deservedly platform which has now transcended onto a global scale, resulting in Stormzy being one of the greatest artists in UK history. Returning to Australia this May 2020 and an album about to drop on December 13, Stormzy is set for a sell-out tour.
