Steve Lacy brings his Give You The World Tour to Australia this November and December, playing headline East Coast dates
Also appearing at Spilt Milk in Canberra, Ballarat and the Gold Coast
Critically acclaimed new album Gemini Rights is out now through RCA Records/Sony Music Australia
Penny Drop and Frontier Touring are delighted to announce Steve Lacy will return to Australia this November and December for headline East Coast dates, along with appearances at Spilt Milk in Canberra, Ballarat and the Gold Coast.
Visiting our shores for the first time since his sold-out headline run in early-2020, Steve Lacy will take in the Forum Melbourne on 22 November, Brisbane’s The Tivoli on 23 November and Sydney’s stunning Enmore Theatre on 28 November.
Lacy’s Australian visit follows the release of his critically acclaimed new album Gemini Rights, which he dropped in July. Written, produced, and played pretty much entirely by Steve, the record is an incredible leap forward for an artist who has already established himself as a true cultural force. Like Lacy himself, the record is an amalgamation of a crazy array of references and influences – everything from Caetono Veloso, to Andre 3000’s The Love Below, to the Beatles, to Sly Stone, to his friends/band mates in THE INTERNET and much more.
Earlier this month, album single ‘Bad Habit’ became the first song to simultaneously top both Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Chart and Hot Rock & Alternative Songs Chart. That same week the song cracked the Top 10 on America’s Pop Airplay Chart and hit No.2 on Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart, becoming Lacy’s first ever single to reach the chart. In Australia, the track topped Spotify’s Top 50 Chart and peaked at No.3 on the ARIA Singles Chart.
With a live show that is equally celebrated, Steve Lacy has earnt praise from the likes of Pitchfork, NME and Rolling Stone, who called Gemini Rights “brilliantly mercurial”.
“… silky-but-powerful vocals” – DIY Mag
“… Lacy well and truly delivered.” – Mixdown Mag
“This singular talent goes to the next level with his deliciously languid second solo album” – The Guardian
Lacy already has a veteran’s resume: Wired Magazine Tech Visionary, Time Magazine Most Influential Teen, Grammy-nominated for his debut album, Apollo XXI, multiple world tours, walked for Virgil Abloh’s first Louis Vuitton show in Paris, gave a TED Talk in NYC, produced a track on Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN (‘Pride’) on his iPhone. His list of collaborators is a who’s who of game changing artists, all of whom look to Lacy to bring his signature brand of cool to their sonic table: people like Tyler the Creator, Solange, J.Cole, Vampire Weekend, Dirty Projectors, Kali Uchis, Thundercat and Mac Miller, not to mention his guitar, bass, songwriting, and production with his bandmates THE INTERNET. His song ‘Dark Red’, which he literally made on his iPhone, claimed platinum status in the US recently!
Following his US tour dates this Spring, Steve Lacy will return down under in November and December and it’s a music experience that is absolutely not to be missed.
