American rapper, singer and record producer Kid Cudi is teasing an Australian tour.

Kid Cudi dropped the teaser on X (formerly Twitter) yesterday after a fan shared a photo of the star in a suit and a cigarette in his mouth. The fan, referencing Cudi’s latest album, Insano, released earlier this month, asked if we’d see the Insano tour down under.

In response, Kid Cudi quote-tweeted his fan and wrote, “This might be one of the flyest photos of me. Tom Ford suit, cigarette, so rock n rollie. Yes ill be comin to aussie town and yes we will fuckin have the BEST time”.

His tweet follows another post he made last April when a different fan asked if Kid Cudi would tour Australia in support of Insano. Kid Cudi answered, “Im def comin next tour on everything, im comin. Promise. New Zealand too. I got yall”.

If the Mr Rager star does indeed tour Australia soon, it’ll mark his first appearance down under since performing at Heatwave Festival at Melbourne’s Sidney Myer Music Bowl in 2012. Before that, he played at Good Vibrations across the country in 2010.

Now we ask: will festivals like Groovin The Moo or Splendour In The Grass lock him in?

Insano features an absolutely stacked 21 song tracklist with numerous guest vocalists, including Travis Scott, DJ Drama, A$AP Rocky, Lil Yachty, Pharrell Williams, Lil Wayne, Young Thug and the late XXXTentacion. It’s his longest studio album by three tracks (the runner-up being 2016’s Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’). 

With the release of Insano, Cudi has completed his contractual obligations with Republic Records, thus making him an independent artist for the first time in nearly two decades. There’s a chance it could be his final album, too, having hinted in 2022 that he’s “nearing the end” of his music career and plans to explore other creative avenues.

Last March, he hyped Insano up as the definitive Kid Cudi album, telling fans, “I've never made a project this powerful before in my life. And you know, sitting and listening to these mixes, I just know that this shit is going to move you.

“Y'all are going to fuck with this shit in such a major way, and I'm so fuckin' excited. I just want to get on here and let y'all know that I'm not gonna let y'all down. This is gonna be the album of the year right now. I'm not playing, this is not a fuckin' joke. Tell everybody you fuckin' know.”
