Fans have one more shot at seeing the Gemini king.

Earlier this morning, many Steve Lacy fans were left disappointed with the tickets to his East Coast Australian headline tour tickets selling out within minutes.

Many fans were stuck waiting in ticket queues until after the tickets had sold out. Luckily for fans they can catch Lacy as the tour venues have no been upgraded. All tickets purchased at the previous venues remain valid. 

He is now playing Melbourne’s John Cain Arena on Tuesday 22 November, Brisbane’s Riverstage on Wednesday 23 November and Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion on Monday 28 November. Tickets to all shows will go on sale on Monday the 10th of October at 10am local time.

Steve Lacy's streaming smash Bad Habit just landed at No.1 on Billboard's Hot 100 Chart with more than 20 million streams in the last week. In Australia the track topped Spotify's Top 50 Chart and peaked at No.3 on the ARIA Charts. 

Steve Lacy returns to Australia off the back of his hit stacked album Gemini Rights which released in July. Almost entirely written, produced and played by Lacy, the record acted as an incredible leap forward for the artist, propelling him to global superstar status.

Alternative and psychedelic rock songs form beautifully with jazz and psych influences, waving, R&B and gospel vocals, wrapped in a glaze of funk and hip-hop. Take for example Mercury (which he wrote, produced and performed)a latin jazz and bossa nova meets 70’s bass driven funk record. It reflects on the anxiety in the face of unrequited love, challenging his own self confidence with playfulness, falsetto vocals and whimsical emotional chants. Its title Mercury is a reference to the ruling planet of his star sign, which affects communication, the mind and language, which he dissects through the track's lyrics.
