R’n’B, hip- hop hit spot in Townsville
Ja Rule in the house o
HOLLA Holla, Townsville!
The one and only Ja Rule will be livin’ it up in an all- time exclusive performance at The Bank Niteclub.
The world- renowned rapper will kick- off his Australian tour on Friday, July 17, in a not- to- bemissed performance right here in Townsville.
Mark Martins, from Future Now Agency, said it had already had an enormous reaction to Ja Rule’s upcoming visit, with ticket sales going through the roof.
“We only have 150 tickets left, so we’re very close to selling out,” Mark said.
“Not many big acts come to Townsville … there’s not many R’n’B events in town so we can’t really go wrong.”
The American rapper came on the scene back in 1999 with his debut single Holla Holla, which peaked at No. 35 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Two No. 1 albums later and the hip- hop sensation has become a worldwide name within the music industry.
The rapper is known for countless Top 20 and Grammy- nominated hits, such as Always on Time, Livin’ It Up, Mesmerize and Thug Lovin’.
He has worked with some of the biggest names in the music business, including Jennifer Lopez, R. Kelly and Jay Z.
He has also collaborated on two No. 1 hits with R’n’B singer Ashanti.
His beef with Eminem and 50 Cent has caused the artist some controversial publicity over the years, but between me and you this rapper knows how to ja- rule the stage more than anyone.
Ja Rule will be the third international hip- hop artist to take on the Townsville entertainment arena this year, after Ciara’s recent performance and Bow Wow’s upcoming visit to The Bank.
Mark Martins said there was a whole R’n’B and hip- hop scene up here and Future Now Agency hoped to secure more international artists.
“Townsville can definitely expect to see some more R’n’B and hip- hop artists,” Mark said.
Doors will open from 8pm on Friday, July 17, with only final release tickets still available.
Tickets are $ 59 and can be purchased from www. ticketbooth. com. au
