The Kid Laroi
AAMI Park, Melbourne
The Kid Laroi, the Australian MC who has taken the global music scene by storm, is set to embark on his biggest Australian tour to date in February 2024.
With the release of his debut album, "The First Time," on November 10th, 2023, The Kid Laroi is gearing up to treat his fans to an unforgettable live experience across major cities in Australia.
The tour will kick off at Melbourne's AAMI Park on Friday, February 2nd, marking the beginning of a thrilling journey that will see the artist traverse sports stadia in Perth, Adelaide, Sydney, and the Gold Coast. The shows are open to all ages, ensuring that fans of all generations can come together to witness the musical prowess of this young sensation. Tickets for these highly anticipated performances will be available for purchase starting Monday, November 20th, through Ticketek.
Fueled by the success of his three-part "F*ck Love" mixtape, which spawned hit singles like 'Go' (featuring Juice WRLD), 'So Done,' 'Without You' (featuring Miley Cyrus), and the chart-topping 'Stay' (featuring Justin Bieber), Laroi secured the number one spot in Australia and the United States, solidifying LAROI's position as a global music powerhouse.
His debut album, "The First Time," features standout tracks such as the lead single 'Love Again,' released in January and achieving ARIA platinum accreditation. Another notable single, 'Too Much,' featuring Central Cee and BTS' Jung Kook, has garnered millions of streams and reached the impressive position of number 10 on the ARIA Top 50 Singles chart.
This 2024 Australian tour comes on the heels of Laroi's successful 2022 arena tour, which included memorable performances at prestigious venues like Brisbane's Riverstage, Adelaide Entertainment Centre, Perth's RAC Arena, and multiple shows at Sydney's Qudos Bank Arena and Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena.
Fans of The Kid Laroi will undoubtedly look forward to his return to Melbourne, where the artist faced unexpected challenges in 2022. Forced to cancel two performances at Rod Laver Arena due to illness, Laroi returned nine days later, delivering a spectacular 23-track performance that left audiences in awe. With an ARIA win under his belt, the anticipation is high for the artist's upcoming Melbourne show, promising an epic affair that fans won't soon forget.
Born Charlton Howard in Sydney, The Kid Laroi has become one of the fastest-rising music stars globally, marking a remarkable journey from a tumultuous past to living in L.A. with over a billion streams across music platforms. His story is one of resilience, talent, and a deep connection to his roots.
Laroi's early life was marked by chaos after his parents split, leading to couch-surfing and financial struggles with his mother. Despite the challenges, Laroi found solace and passion in hip-hop. He began recording verses on his mother's iPhone before upgrading to a studio, sharing his music on platforms like Soundcloud and social media. His rise was swift, gaining a devoted following in Sydney and beyond.
In 2019, rapper Lil Bibby, who had previously signed the late Juice WRLD, took notice of Laroi's talent and signed him in a joint deal with Columbia Records. Laroi's association with Juice WRLD significantly influenced his music and career. The two artists developed a mentorship, with Laroi even living with Juice WRLD in Los Angeles, observing the older artist's studio practices. However, tragedy struck in December 2019 when Juice WRLD passed away from a drug overdose. Despite the loss, Laroi paid homage by featuring a verse from Juice WRLD on his debut album's lead single, "Go."
"The Kid Laroi’s debut album, F*ck Love," released in July 2020, delves into the pain and heartbreak of his past, addressing Juice WRLD's death and reflecting on a past relationship. The album's melancholic themes resonated with a generation familiar with the emotive styles of artists like Juice WRLD and Lil Uzi Vert. It quickly gained traction on streaming platforms, amassing over 1.6 billion streams on Spotify.
Laroi's strategic use of TikTok further propelled his success. A clip of his song "Without You" went viral on the platform, leading to millions of videos and eventually hitting the top 10 in numerous countries. His ability to navigate both traditional charts and emerging platforms showcased his versatility and awareness of the changing music landscape.
His name is a nod to his indigenous heritage, with his mother being Kamilaroi. He actively represents and discusses his country and community, becoming a source of inspiration for indigenous youth.
Laroi's impact extends beyond his success. He has become a trailblazer for a rising class of Australian rappers, contributing to the global recognition of the West Sydney hip-hop scene. His collaborations with local artists and producers showcase his commitment to fostering talent in his home country.
As Laroi continues his ascent, collaborations with industry giants like Justin Bieber and Halsey indicate that he is poised for even greater achievements. Elton John's praise, dubbing him "one of the biggest artists in the world," further cements Laroi's status as a global music phenomenon. The upcoming tour in Australia is not just a celebration of his success but a homecoming for an artist who has transcended boundaries and left an indelible mark on the world of music.
