Jason Derulo, Boyz II Men, Kelly Rowland and Flo Rida Are Heading Down Under for a Huge R&B Tour
'Whatcha Say', 'End of the Road', 'Low', Destiny's Child songs — they'll all get a whirl at this nostalgic gig.
August 31, 2023
It's blast from the past time — again — thanks to Australia and New Zealand's annual dose of R&B and hip hop nostalgia. Fridayz Live previously went by RNB Fridays, but still serves up the same focus on old-school favourites no matter its moniker. On 2023's bill: Jason Derulo, Boyz II Men, Kelly Rowland and Flo Rida.
'Whatcha Say', 'End of the Road', 'Low', Destiny's Child songs — they'll all get a whirl on this tour, which does the rounds in November. Hitting up arenas at every stop, it'll kick off in Melbourne, before heading to Perth, Adelaide and Auckland. Then it's Brisbane's and Sydney's turn to finish off the run.
As well Derulo and his 20 platinum singles, 90s boy band favourites Boyz II Men, Beyoncé and Michelle Williams' former colleague, and one of the biggest fans of collaborations in the business, 2023's Fridayz Live will also feature Jojo, 112, Baby Bash, Travie McCoy and Havana Brown.
Making a massive event even bigger, Naughty by Nature's Vin Rock & DJ Kay Gee are on the bill, too, celebrating 50 years of hip hop with a countdown.
Just like last year, Yo! Mafia will be on DJ duties, while Abbie Chatfield and Fatman Scoop are both playing host.
And yes, it's a glorious time to see huge music names Down Under at the moment, with Fridayz Live's roster of talent joining tours by everyone from Kraftwerk, Devo and Paul McCartney to Sparks, Ms Lauryn Hill and Christina Aguilera, plus Chaka Khan, Fall Out Boy and more, getting retro across a whole heap of genres.
