Blackbear announces debut New Zealand show

One of the most versatile R&B/hip-hop artist of this decade, BLACKBEAR, is set to bring his Digital Druglord tour to New Zealand, hitting up Auckland’s The Studio this November.

Blackbear isn’t afraid to keep true to himself and the results are paying off. The new album, Digital Druglord, continues the upward trend and raises the bar to new heights. After teasing his third album for months on Twitter, the new 10-track record has critics rejoicing over its unique blend of sharp R&B/rap/hip-hop that effortlessly weaves in and out of slow jams and floor-fillers. The success of the album couldn’t come at a better time as he sets out on one of his most ambitious tours to date.

Tickets are on sale now.

A native of Los Angeles, Blackbear – born Matthew Musto – is no stranger to writing and recording hits. You might not know it, but you’ve been listening to him for years. Blackbear co-wrote the Justin Bieber worldwide smash-hit Boyfriend with Mike Posner back in 2012. Already a millionaire at the age of 21, he released his first solo album Deadroses with special guests Travis Mills, G-Eazy and James Blake. His second album Help naturally topped the Billboard’s Uncharted list in 2014.

A few side projects later (including an album with Mike Posner) we have the full incarnation of Blackbear with 2017’s Digital Druglord. With the precision of a surgeon, he expertly touches on the themes close to home: drugs, money and sex.

This is an opportunity to see the perfect amalgamation of modern hip-hop and R&B in person this November.

THE STUDIO, AUCKLAND WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 22
