Ladi6 plans 2-part NZ tour


Ladi6 is heading out on a major tour so big she’s splitting it into two parts.

The hip-hop singer will perform 17 dates, kicking off in June in Blenheim before heading to Nelson, Westport, Queenstown, Wanaka, Invercargi­ll, Napier, Gisborne, New Plymouth, Hamilton, Whangarei and Russell.

But when she hits Dunedin, Christchur­ch, Wellington and Auckland in July, Ladi6 will play with an all-female line-up including SilvaMC, Jess B and Bailey Wiley.

It’s her first headlining tour since she was forced to cancel an Australasi­an tour in 2017 for two separate vocal cord surgeries.

She’ll be playing in support of last year’s well received EP, “We have been riding high off the back of such a widespread warm and encouragin­g response to the record.

“It feels so good to come full circle and be able to finally share it with New Zealand the way we want to.”
