Update, June 28: Due to overwhelming demand, Childish Gambino has announced a second Sydney show. The singer will perform again at the Sydney Opera House Forecourt on Thursday, November 15 — following his first show on November 14. Tickets will go on sale at midday, Friday, June 29 (AKA tomorrow) and as tickets for the first show almost sold out at today's pre-sale, we suggest heading to buy them here right as the clock strikes 12.

After announcing yesterday that Childish Gambino would be headlining Canberra's Spilt Milk, the US hip hop star has this morning released dates for his full Australian tour.

Fresh off the back of a #1 Billboard Charts debut for his single "This Is America"he'll be hitting up Sydney on November 14, Melbourne on November 10, and Perth on November 8 — as well as the aforementioned Spilt Milk festival on November 17. After, he'll head over to New Zealand to perform his multi-sensory concert experience PHAROS.

This will be Childish Gambino's — AKA Donald Glover, AKA writer/director/star of Atlanta, if you haven't already worked that out — first Aussie shows since performing at Falls Festival in 2016.

The shows are announced ahead of the release of his highly anticipated fourth album, which is set to follow Camp, Because the Internet and Awaken, My Love!. While you're waiting for tickets to go on sale, watch (re-watch) that "This Is America" video — it has already racked up over 300M views.

Tickets for the three shows will go on sale at midday on Friday, June 29. You can also register for pre-sale access here.

Childish Gambino will perform at HBF Stadium, Perth on November 8; Sidney Myer Music Bowl, Melbourne on November 10; and the Sydney Opera House, Sydney on November 14 and November 15.
