I’m going to go through my storage from my college days to see if I can find my red, black, and green wristband. While I’m in there, I should also check to see if I have $1,400 laying around for a flight to Australia, because that’s where Yasiin Bey and Talib Kweli will reunite as Black Star for several dates on an upcoming tour.
Beginning on October 22, the Brooklyn duo will head down under for three dates in Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne, before wrapping up the tour with one spot in Auckland, New Zealand. Bey and Kwe’ have joined up sporadically over the past few years to supply the Black Star fix fans have been jonesing for since their classic album dropped nearly two decades ago, but the short glimpses have only made fans hungry for more.
Here’s hoping that the tour is just a beta test, and two Brooklynites have more in store for their stateside fans as well. For our NZ and Aussie friends, check the dates below, grab your tickets and make sure to take your cameras.
Oct. 22 2015 Brisbane, Australia Eatons Hill
