Nas and The Soul Rebels make History at Bluesfest 2017 on Thursday 13th of April - Opening Night! IT’S EXCLUSIVE!
When hip hop icon Nas takes the stage with The Soul Rebels on Thursday 13 April, it will be ONLY the second time this momentous collaboration has EVER occurred, and the first time outside of the USA. The only performance to date occurred at the legendary Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival in 2016 and garnered stellar reviews, such as:
"it was no secret that Brooklyn was the most amped to see the headliner, Nas. Backed by Soul Rebels band, the self-proclaimed God's Son stormed the stage to "Get Down." Mr. Jones didn't let up, after that. He rolled through classics like "N.Y. State of Mind," "The World Is Yours," "Memory Lane," "Life's a Bitch," and "Halftime."...Fans, young and old, gleefully and emotionally mouth every word. For the next hour, it was nothing but excitement, love, social awareness and admiration."- Vibe
There is ONLY ONE place in Australia you can catch this once in a life time event and it's exclusively at Bluesfest. Single day tickets for Thursday are selling fast!
