Public Enemy

By June 26, 2024July 2nd, 2024Uncategorized

Public Enemy are set to return to Australia & New Zealand to kick off their On The Grid 35th Anniversary Tour!

The rap revolutionaries will return this October for an epic tour with special guests A.B. Original (Australia) and MELODOWNZ (New Zealand).

Formed in 1985 in Long Island by friends Chuck D and Flavor Flav, Public Enemy burst onto the scene with their debut album “Yo! Bum Rush The Show’! Their breakthrough came with their second album, “It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back” in 1988 – propelling them to international fame and a series of accolades. Their 1990 hit “Fight the Power” became an anthem for racial justice, reflecting their ongoing activism and cultural influence.

Joining them in Australia is A.B. Original, a collaboration between Briggs and Trials, renowned for their commentary on racial and systemic injustices in Australia, offering a powerful First Nations’ perspective through their music.

Joining them in New Zealand is MELODOWNZ – proof that thought-provoking, lyrical rap is alive and here to stay, taking out three awards at the Pacific Music Awards in 2023: Best Male Artist, Best Music Video, and Best Music Album Award, along with a prestigious Aotearoa Music Award for Best Pacific Music Video.
