Ice Cube Cypress Hill The Game

It’s bound to be one of the biggest events of the year, and Ice Cube, Cypress Hill and The Game have extended their upcoming Australia and New Zealand tour.

Three of the finest hip-hop stars of their generation will perform seven huge arena shows together throughout March and April with the addition of a second show at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena on Wednesday, March 22nd after their first show at the venue sold out (see full dates below). Tickets for the trio’s new Melbourne show go on sale on Monday, February 6th at 11am local time.

The tour comes at a great time for Ice Cube, with 2023 marking the 30th anniversary of the rapper’s popular fourth solo album, Lethal Injection. It will be Ice Cube’s first shows in the country since 2018, when he made history by becoming the first ever rap artist to headline at the Sydney Opera House.

“I love performing in Australia. It’s been four long years since my last visit and I can’t wait to return for a couple of history-making shows in 2023,” Ice Cube said about the upcoming tour.

He’ll be joined by California hip hop group Cypress Hill, one of the finest West Coast rap artists of all time. In 2019, they became the first ever hip hop group to earn a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Completing the sensational lineup is all-conquering rapper The Game. Another icon of the West Coast rap scene, three of his first four albums topped the U.S. Billboard 200, with his 2005 debut, The Documentary, being twice certified platinum. The trio of hip hop legends will also be joined by some exciting local talent, with lineup announcements to come.
