Fresh from celebrating his first #1 album in Australia, ILLY has announced his Two Degrees Tour, kicking off in March 2017 in Fremantle, taking in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney before finishing up in Brisbane in April.
Two Degrees, his fifth studio release, debuted at #1 on the ARIA album chart in November this year and includes the triple platinum single Papercuts featuring Vera Blue – which Illy performed at the 2016 ARIA Awards – and the current ARIA gold certified single Catch 22, featuring Anne-Marie.
Joining Illy at all shows are special guests, ARIA Award-nominated Australian hip hop duo Spit Syndicate, the unique Gold Coast producer and remixer Paces and Melbourne singer, songwriter and producer, Maribelle.
As well as performing at the 2016 ARIAs, Illy was also nominated for six ARIA Awards, including Best Male Artist and Song Of The Year for Papercuts. With more than 17 million streams, the track went double platinum in eight weeks and peaked at #1 on the iTunes singles chart.
Illy played a series of launch shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne in November, where he showcased tracks from the Triple j feature album for the very first time. The tickets to these shows sold out within minutes. Produced by M-Phazes, Two Degrees has not only captured the public’s ears but also music critics nationally.
“Illy’s fifth LP is packed with the signature slick, radio-friendly sound… delivering a near-bulletproof blend of pop, EDM and hip-hop.” – Rolling Stone
“Two Degrees deftly strikes a balance between party songs and sonic tales of life’s struggles. And sometimes they are both, Illy achieving that Holy Grail of pop music where an upbeat melody disguises a darker lyric.” – Herald Sun
