Legendary NYC hip hop artist Pharoahe Monch returns to Australia and New Zealand this September, for a seven date tour.

If you caught the MC when he last toured in 2014, you’ll know what to expect. If you are new to Monch, then you’d be best served by checking out his 1999 solo debut Internal Affairs, which features his hit single ‘Simon Says’.

Throughout a 25+ year career, he has collaborated with the likes of Mos Def, Nate Dogg, Macy Gray, Justin Timberlake, and Talib Kweli. “He has been ahead of his time since he came out”, Eminem once said of Monch, an artist he has credited as an influence.

He will again be touring with his longterm DJ Boogie Blind and hypeman Cam.

Pre-sale tickets go on sale Thursday June 22 from 10am, with general admission available from Monday June 26, at 10am.
