Where’s Mos Def?
For those of you gutted about Mos Def’s failure to show at his first Aussie gigs, take heart, we’ve got news that the rapper is on his way!
The legendary hip-hop star was originally scheduled to perform his very first tour of Australasia, starting in Auckland, New Zealand on Wednesday (19 Jan), and then onto Australian destinations including Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Melbourne. But despite one already rescheduled date, Mos Def failed to appear at his first gig in Adelaide and no one seemed to know why.
Now, with news from the promoter that Mos Def is yet to arrive in the country, comes the update that the hit-maker will indeed arrive in Sydney Saturday morning. While the missed shows will be rescheduled, the remaining gigs will roll out as per the original tour dates.
New dates are expected to be announced within a week, while an official statement from the rapper himself as to what caused the delay is said to be on its way. We’ll keep you posted!
The remaining dates are as follows:
Sun Jan 23
The Enmore Theatre, Sydney
Wed Jan 26
The Hi Fi, Brisbane
Thu Jan 27
Metro City, Perth
Fri Jan 28
The Espy, Melbourne
