A STRONG love of re­gional Aus­tralia will bring one of Aus­tralia’s most high pro­file hip-hop artists to Air­lie Beach.

If the ARIA award-win­ning hit ‘Paper­cuts’, dou­ble plat­inum sen­sa­tion ‘Catch 22’ and mind blow­ing ‘You Say When’ songs strike the right chord for you, then now is the time to book your tick­ets to see Illy per­form at his best.

Illy’s ‘Two De­grees’ tour of Air­lie Beach comes af­ter the re­lease of ARIA #1 al­bum Two De­grees and will be the most ex­ten­sive tour of Aus­tralia to date.

This comes as his most suc­cess­ful track “Paper­cuts” came close to top­ping the charts, com­ing 7th in the Hottest 100 in 2016.

Af­ter of­fi­cially hit­ting the road in July this year, Illy’s tour will fin­sih in Can­berra in Novem­ber.

The Two De­grees Re­gional Tour fol­lows Illy's largest ever cap­i­tal city tour in March and April, which fea­tured sold-out shows in Syd­ney, Mel­bourne, Perth and Bris­bane.

Illy has a su­per­star pres­ence be­yond Aus­tralian bor­ders, hav­ing toured in­ter­na­tion­ally both as a head­line act and as a sup­port­ing en­ter­tainer to the Hill­top Hoods in the 2014 world tour in Europe

Illy also has a good his­tory of re­gional tour­ing, hit­ting the road with Groovin’ The Moo Fes­ti­val twice, along with a pre­vi­ous re­gional head­line tour in 2014. “(I’m) Re­ally psyched to get back on the road for such a huge run. It’s been a cou­ple years since last time, and this will be the big­gest I’ve ever done. Let’s get loose,” he said.

Illy’s mu­si­cal ca­reer has con­tin­ued a sky-rock­et­ing tra­jec­tory since the re­lease of his first al­bum ‘Long Story Short’ in 2009.

Since his as­cen­sion to fame he re­leased a fur­ther three al­bums ‘Chase’, ‘Bring it Back On’ and ‘Two De­grees’.

With less than a week to go be­fore this Hip-Hop

sen­sa­tion rocks the Whit­sun­days, be sure to to lock in the Septem­ber 16 date for a show which is sure to be re­mem­bered for many years.
