ANNOUNCED: Rae Sremmurd Headline Shows

At long last, emerging rap superstars Rae Sremmurd announce headline shows in Melbourne and Sydney in addition to their previously announced appearances at Listen Out festival in September and October.

My Live Nation pre-sale opens midday Friday August 28.

Tickets for both shows go on sale at 9am Monday, August 31.

Having taught themselves to produce and DJ at an early age, Rae Sremmurd – brothers Khalif (aka “Swae Lee”) and Aaquil (aka “Slim Jimmy”) Brown - found their voice hosting parties in Tupelo, Mississippi. Emulating the styles of Lil Wayne, Eazy-E and Soulja Boy, the duo rapidly built a reputation as an irrepressibly energetic outfit.

After migrating to Atlanta – the geographical nexus of Southern rap - the brothers caught the attention of multi-platinum producer Mike WiLL Made-It (Rihanna, Jay Z, Kanye West, 2 Chainz), who immediately signed them to his label, Ear Drummer Records.

In January, Rae Sremmurd's debut, SremmLife, went straight to #1 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip Hop Album Charts on the back of hits 'No Flex Zone' and 'No Type'. 

The duo will be joined at both dates by Floria: a rising star in Australia’s burgeoning alt-R&B scene. Taking aesthetic cues from Cashmere Cat and Shlohmo in his production, Floria’s vocal style echoe Drake and The Weeknd.
