    Check the tour dates below. April 26 - Hordern Pavilion - Sydney April 27 - Sidney Myer Music Bowl - Melbourne April 28 - Riverstage - Brisbane April 30 - Red Hill Auditorium - Perth POSTPONED. They won't sell out! More dodgy half ass'd tours for Aussie's to put up with.

    Don't forget to show the full story. The tour have been cancelled 10 days prior. It was booked the same dates as Supafest and Supafest can never sell out and The Movement Festival would have flopped. They are now saying putting the tours on at the same time has hindered ticket sales. The bills are not impressive either. There should be a rule against calling a gig of 5-8 acts a festival, that's a concert. A festival should be 15 plus acts. Fizzard! We're being fed Eminem is touring here with Obtrice and DMX.The flyers are going around and can't find any tour info online and when you look at promo sites it says Shady presents. Damn promoters think Aussie's are stupid! Just thought I would have my say as I would hate you for you get fed some bs from the peeps of The Movement Festival. Peace.

    2chainz and chiddy bang are there to secure sold out concerts from white girls who love pop music. Just a business move.

    The believe the reason Nas has 2 Chainz on the list so that the crowd could get hyped, you need a rapper with lame lyrics but catchy beats to get every to go crazy before the main act shows up

      Nas isn't a hater he works with who can rap, you can debate it all you want but search up his mixtapes.. at times 2 Chainz has bars
    • ^
      No. 2Chainz has no bars at all. He's wack, period. Nas needed one mainstream artist for his festival.

      Chainz got flow and superb timing. VERY important aspects of MCing my nigg. Fall back on that fuck shit.
    • ^
      Wrong, wrong, and wrong. 2 Chainz has none of that. He sucks lyrically.
