Lil Uzi Vert is heading to New Zealand & Australia this February & March. 
 
Dubbed ‘King of the kids’ by Zane Lowe on Beats 1 , Uzi nabbed an MTV Video Music Award for his mammoth single, ‘XO Tour Llife3’. Lifted from his 16-track debut album Luv Is Rage 2 (out now through Atlantic), the track has amassed over 1.3 billion streams worldwide, and seen him take to the stage with Ed Sheeran to perform a mashup of ‘Shape of You’ and ‘XO Tour Llif3’ at this year’s MTV VMA’s. 
 
2017’s Luv Is Rage 2 sees the Philadelphia-based rapper collaborate with superstars like Pharrell Williams and The Weeknd, weaving lonely emo, lean psychedelia, and tightly-wound trap wordplay with a vision unlike anything in his prior canon.
 
What’s more, Uzi earned a range of additional awards and nominations for Migos’ #1 smash single, ‘Bad and Boujee (Feat. Lil Uzi Vert),’ including the BET Awards’ Best Collaboration trophy and nods for Top Rap Song and Top Rap Collaboration at the Billboard Music Awards.
 
Uzi’s rapid rise to fame began in 2015 when he was just 20. There was his explosive appearance on Carnage’s single ‘WDYW’ alongside A$AP Ferg and Rich The Kid and later spending the America summer priming the crowd for Wiz Khalifa and Fall Out Boy on their Boys of Zummer Tour. Things were taken to a whole new level following the release of his first mixtape, Luv Is Rage earning Uzi international fandom and critical acclaim.
 
Performing tracks from his mixtapes and debut album, Uzi fans should expect to hear ‘Do What I Want’, ‘The Way Life Goes’, ‘UnFazed’, and of course ‘XO Tour Llif3’ alongside his much loved hype man – xxx. No doubt he’ll be bringing his distinct dance moves to the stage that inspired the #LilUziVertChallenge hashtag too.
