Joji announces first Australia and New Zealand headline tour


The Japanese-Australian singer-songwriter will be returning to Australia for three east coast dates this November.

Following a headlining slot at last year’s Laneway Festival, the alternative pop star has announced a trio of all-ages arena dates as well as a stopover in New Zealand.

Melbourne fans can see him live at his massive Rod Laver Arena show on November 20.

Joji 2023 Pandemonium tour

  • Nov 16 – Qudos Bank Arena, Sydney
  • Nov 18 – Brisbane Entertainment Centre, Brisbane
  • Nov 20 – Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne
  • Nov 22 – Spark Arena, Auckland

Formerly known as the viral comedy Youtuber Filthy Frank, George Kusunoki Miller made a swift career change in 2017 and stopped putting out videos to focus on his Joji music project.

He gained recognition with his break-out single, Slow Dancing In The Dark, off his debut album Ballads 1. The album was released on 88rising, a label best known for shining a light on Asian American talent which has worked with stars including Rich Brian, Keith Ape and NIKI.

His second release, Nectar, saw the artist collaborate with Diplo, Omar Apollo, Lil Yachty and Yves Tumor.

In 2022, the singer dropped his third and most recent album, Smithereens, which reached number one on the Billboard Top Alternative Albums and featured the wildly successful, platinum-certified single Glimpse Of Us.

Best known for his emotional lyricism, melancholic songwriting and rich baritone voice, Joji is set to deliver a round of touching and memorable performances when he makes his way over this summer.

He’ll be bringing along Scottish electronic producer Sam Gellaitry and American rill rapper SavageRealmto get the party started.

His recent appearances at New York’s Madison Square Garden and LA’s Kia Forum sold out entirely in pre-sale, so fans are encouraged to get in early to secure their spot.

Tickets to see Joji are set to go on sale on Friday, August 25 at 2pm local time, with a pre-sale for Frontier members starting at noon on Thursday, August 24.
