ChillinIt announces massive tour for ‘The Octagon’
After the release of his hugely anticipated second album, The Octagon, CHILLINIT is back this week with news of his biggest tour yet. Playing some of the country’s biggest venues, ChillinIt will be bringing The Octagon all across the country, as well as two dates in New Zealand and a UK date.
This news comes after a massive couple of weeks for the Sydney rapper. Not only did The Octagon debuted at #2 on the ARIA Album charts and at #2 on the Australian Artist Album charts in its second week, but it has also amassed over 8 million streams in total. Capitalising on the enormous success he saw in 2019 with his 2018 album Women, Weed & Wordplay remaining in the charts for the entire year and selling thousands of tickets to his shows, 2020 is marking a serious step up for the Hurstville rapper.
Always one to make sure he gives back to his community, ChillinIt also took to social media recently to give props to Lou’s Place, a women’s refuge in Sydney, with a sizable donation of $10,000. “This music shit is a blessing and it has changed my life so I thrive off being able to give to others as well as turn the fuck up and have some fun myself,” ChillinIt said.
Fans can nab their tickets to the tour from 9am AEDT tomorrow in the pre-sale, with general tickets going on sale 9am AEDT Thursday. These will absolutely not last long, so don’t delay if you’re wanting to head along. For full dates and more info, check below!
