The Kid Laroi Announced As Special Guest As They. Announce Debut Headline Shows In Melbourne & Sydney

Frontier Touring and Illusive Presents are thrilled to confirm two debut Australian performances for purveyors in futuristic R&B, THEY. Drew Love and Dante Jones will be dropping into Howler in Melbourne on Thursday 11 October and Oxford Arts Factory in Sydney on Wednesday 17 October while touring the country in support of 6LACK. Joining THEY. in Sydney and Melbourne will be 14 year old rap prodigy The Kid LAROI.

In 2017, THEY. flipped R&B on its axis and spun the genre around 360 degrees with a little grunge, electronic, and pop. As a result, their full-length debut, Nü Religion: HYENA (out now through Mind of a Genius/Warner Bros. Records) incited widespread critical praise around the world, with singles ‘U-RITE’ and ‘Dante’s Creek’ cracking 12 million streams each on Spotify.

Along the way, they’ve toured with everyone from PARTYNEXTDOOR and Jeremih to Bryson Tiller, and delivered a standout show at Coachella 2018 converting audiences to their Nü Religion in 2018 and beyond. Catch their live performance of ‘Dante’s Creek’ performed earlier this year on Jimmy Kimmel Live below to see the magic.

Confirmed to support, The Kid LAROI will be opening up the shows with his smooth as silk tracks from his freshly released EP 14 With A Dream. Hailed by some as a prodigy, this 14 year old is worth showing up early for. 

They’ve set the Northern Hemisphere on fire, now it’s our turn to be introduced to one of R&Bs most exciting acts. Act quickly to avoid disappointment!
