UPDATE March 10, 2015: Iggy Azalea’s Great Escape Tour rescheduled to September
Presented by AEG Live, the tour featuring the first international female rapper to reach No. 1 on both the Billboard R&B/hip-hop and rap album charts begins in San Diego Sept. 18 and includes stops in Los Angeles, Miami, Las Vegas, Toronto, Chicago and Austin, Texas.
Joining Iggy on tour will be recording artist and actor Nick Jonas. Also joining as supporting acts are R&B/hip-hop artists Tinashe and DJ Wizz Kidd.
After years of honing her signature style on hip-hop’s underground circuit, Iggy Azalea burst onto the charts with her critically acclaimed debut album, “The New Classic,” and emerged as the breakout story of 2014, with one of the year’s most-streamed albums globally.
She has been nominated for four prestigious 2015 Grammy Awards, including Best New Artist, Best Rap Album, Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Fancy” featuring Charlie XCX.
“Fancy” broke airplay records and made history as the longest-leading No. 1 by a female rapper, also making Iggy the first artist since The Beatles to rank at No. 1 and No. 2 simultaneously with their first two Hot 100 hits.
In addition to her recent Grammy nominations, Iggy has been nominated for six American Music Awards and won both this year’s favorite rap/hip-hop artist and favorite rap/hip-hop album, nine MTV Video Music Awards and was Billboard’s Women in Music 2014 Chart Topper.
