Illy Taking Off On National Tour

Melbourne-based hip-hop artist Illy is taking his breakthrough sophomore album The Chase on the road, with a huge run of national tour dates throughout the next three months.

 

The Chase Tour will see him hitting up major cities and regional centres around the country, with friend and producer M-Phazes along for the ride as a special guest.

 

Since its release, The Chase has catapulted Illy to the forefront of the greater Australian music community. The lead single It Can Wait (feat. Owl Eyes) took music lovers by storm, and was awarded Album of the Week by Triple J in September.

 

Backing up the rave reviews of The Chase by the media with a series of sold-out headline shows and stints on Groovin' The Moo and Coaster Festivals, Illy bid farewell to 2010 with a set at the Pyramid Rock Festival.

 

And with a new single looming, he shows no sign of slowing down.

 

Tickets for these not-to-be-missed nationwide gigs go on sale January 31.

 

Illy will perform in Melbourne at the Push Over Festival on Sunday March 13, and tickets will be available at oztix.com.au, and at The Corner Hotel on Friday March 18, and tickets will be available at cornerhotel.com.
