Following on from a sold out North American headline tour that MTV described as "life-affirming", Chicago rapper Noname announces her debut Australian headline tour this summer.

Alongside already announced Fairgrounds and Meredith Music Festival appearances, Noname will begin her Australian tour at Brisbane’s The Triffid on Tuesday 5 December, followed by an all-ages show at Sydney’s Metro Theatre on Wednesday 6 December, and two final shows at Melbourne's 170 Russell – both of which are sold out. She'll be joined by special guests Billy Davis and the Good Lords for all dates.

Hailed by The FADER and Rolling Stone as one of the most important new artists of her generation, Noname (aka Fatimah Warner) first appeared as a guest on Chance The Rapper’s breakthrough mixtapes, with stunning features on both Acid Rap and Coloring Book. She released her debut mixtape, Telefone, as a free download last July, a release that blurred the lines of spoken word poetry and rap and gaining critical acclaim from the likes of New York Magazine, Pitchfork and Dazed & Confused.
