Epik High Is Here Tour
Get your ‘Champagne’ on and enter the alluring world of South Korean alternative hip hop veterans, Epik High! The band are bringing their ‘Epik High Is Here Tour’ to Australia in July. Proudly presented by TEG Live and CK Star Entertainment, tickets will go on sale to the general public at 11am on Friday 3rd June.
Fresh from their 2nd fiery appearance at Coachella 2022 and a slew of 28 sold-out shows on their North American tour, the eclectic trio is back on familiar shores.
No stranger to Australia, Epik High had previously performed in 2019, meeting with hordes of fans and preparing for a bigger, more exclusive return. This new tour marks the trio’s second concert in conjunction with the release of their highly anticipated 10th studio album in two parts, ‘Epik High is Here 上 (Part 1)’ & ‘Epik High Is Here 下 (Part 2)’.
The split of the album was intentional, mirroring the way traditional Korean novels were released in two parts giving time to take a break and process what you have consumed before moving on to the next. According to a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, the message behind this newest release is that Epik High is here even when you think no one is willing to listen. This album shares wisdom that only comes from the experience of 20 years of lows and some pretty epic highs.
Fans of Epik High – High Skool – will learn the group’s independence has merely whetted their capacity for producing the experimental and provocative music all have come to love. Expect to rave to emotive hip-hop track “Born Hater” or universally-loved hit “Happen Ending”, and be challenged not to join in a nostalgic sing-along to classic chart-topper “Fly”.
Epik High will play shows in both Melbourne and Sydney for one night only. Along with the characteristically playful antics of the forever young-at-heart man band, fans can be assured of a night to remember like no other.
Epik High’s Melbourne performance is part of ALWAYS LIVE, a new state-wide celebration of contemporary live music supported by the Victorian Government through Visit Victoria.
