Fred again… announces surprise Australia arena tour starting next week

February 28 2024

Last night Fred again.. made history at the Sydney Opera House – becoming the first-ever artist to announce, sell out, and perform at the iconic venue, all within 24 hours. Announced on Instagram yesterday and immediately placed on sale, the news saw over 145,000 people rush to purchase tickets before the show blew out. The largest on-sale demand the concert hall has ever had.

Today, the fever continues as he announces a string of enormous arena shows beginning in Melbourne next week. Supported by JOY (ANONYMOUS), Fred again.. will perform three nights at Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena, three nights at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena, plus the Gold Coast. Tickets are on sale to the General Public from tomorrow. There will be no pre-sale. See all tour routing details and local on-sale times BELOW and access the on-sale ticket link HERE.

Fred again.. today also releases his single ‘stayinit’, a collaboration with Lil Yachty and Overmono, debuted at their Lot Radio session in New York last week. This is the next release from his USB album series, following on from his collab with Baby Keem at the end of last year. LISTEN HERE.

Wherever Fred again.. goes, rules and sales records break. He made his Australian debut in January 2023, with now-iconic performances at Laneway Festival, instant sell-out headline shows, and surprise DJ pop-ups that sold out in under 5 seconds. Since then, he has made headlines and set venue records around the world. His NYC Madison Square Garden show announced 4 days in advance, took only 4 minutes to sell out.

Tickets are expected to go quickly, as his 20-date tour across the UK, EU, and the US sold out immediately, with fans more than 5 times the available capacities attempting to secure their place across tens of thousands of waitlists. He rapidly sold out 8 nights at Shrine Expo Hall in LA, 3 nights at Forest Hills Stadium in New York, and 5 nights at Alexandra Palace in London, with fans more than 5 times the available capacities attempting to secure their place across tens of thousands of waitlists.

Where Fred again..’s prior local tour was described as “the most red-hot party happening in Australia this week, possibly even the year” (Life Without Andy), and secret shows spawning the most obscene fan antics from “Penguin watching, police shutdowns, lines outside of random pubs” (Purple Sneakers), his imminent tour dates will employ global-scale production and sound, unlike anything local fans have experienced before. Be sure to experience the moment before it passes – more info HERE.
