6LACK Returns To NZ On World Tour

6LACK
RETURNS TO NEW ZEALAND
ON WORLD TOUR FOR NEW ALBUM
EAST ATLANTA LOVE LETTER

• 6LACK’s new record East Atlanta Love Letter will drop on September 13th
• The rapper has already racked up more than 1.5 billion streams worldwide.
• His track Prblms is certified GOLD in New Zealand
• This will be 6LACK's first headline show in New Zealand


Off the back of the huge announcement of his second record East Atlanta Love Letter, Frontier Touring and Illusive Presents are hyped to be bringing 6LACK back to New Zealand as part of his mammoth From East Atlanta, With Love world tour.

Playing one show only at Auckland’s Powerstation, this will be 6LACK’s first ever headline show in New Zealand after supporting Migos and playing Northern Bass Festival in 2017. Breakout hip-hop duo THEY. and the newest Shady Records signee, BOOGIE, will be along for the ride.

For 6LACK, East Atlanta Love Letter is a sonic love letter to his friends and family at home, his significant other, past significant others and most importantly, his fans. The project features huge single ‘Switch’, whose music video has accumulated almost 5 million views to date, including more than 3 million in the week of its release.



Since the 2016 release of breakout hit ‘Prblms’ and debut record FREE 6LACK, 6LACK’s moody hip-hop has done nothing but build momentum. 2018 has already been a huge year for the Atlanta rapper, with the release of atmospheric slow jam ‘Cutting Ties’, a massive tour supporting Chris Brown, major slots at Coachella and The Governors Ball, and a standout feature alongside Ty Dolla $ign on Khalid’s smash hit ‘OTW’.

6LACK’s soon to be released sophomore album, East Atlanta Love Letter (due out September 13), is sure to be packed with more heat, making his October date down under the perfect time to catch his new music live. Don’t sleep on this one, tickets won’t last long.
