True to their word, organisers of the upcoming Soulfest, which is due to hit both Sydney and Melbourne in late October, aren’t leaving the good people of Brisbane in the lurch.
They’ve confirmed that some of Soulfest’s biggest names will make the trip to the Queensland capital for a trio of very special headline shows.
Mary J Blige will hit the stage at the Brisbane Convention Centre on Tuesday October 20, ably supported by the incredible Jill Scott.
Ms Lauryn Hill will perform her catalogue of hits at the same venue the following night, bringing along the smooth sounds of Eric Benet for support.
And hip hoppers Black Star (Mod Def and Talib Kewli) will pop into Eatons Hill Hotel for a show on Thursday October 22.
An early bird pre-sale for all three shows is on sale for 12 hours only from 10am on Wednesday, with general public tickets going live on Thursday July 23.
