There is nothing we love more than when international talent hits Australian shores. And following an electrified performance featuring Post Malone and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers at the 2019 Grammy Awards, we can expect nothing less in the coming tour performances this year.
Nominated for four awards this evening, including Record of the Year, Best Pop Solo Performance, Album of the Year and Best Rap/Sung Performance, Post Malone opened his Grammy’s performance with an acoustic “Stay” from his Beerbongs & Bentleys album. Showing off his masterful range of genres, the American artist then followed on to bang out his popular “Rockstar” track.

Adorned in a heavily embellished, purple ensemble and bejewelled western boots, Malone then joined the stage with none other than the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Set to tour the country in just under seven days, a cleaned-up Anthony Keidis lead a rock-fuelled rendition of the 2016 track “Dark Necessities”. Bouncing around the stage with his fellow band-members, the shirt came off in spectacular style with the energy kept high throughout the entire 4 minutes. Their appearance however bore special significance, as first choice 21 Savage, remains in custody after being arrested by ICE on February 3.
The first headliner since their 2007 “Stadium Arcadium” tour, R.H.C.P can expect a warm welcome to Australia from February 19, in Sydney. As for Post Malone, the artist will see a return after performing as part of the 2018 FOMO Festival, starting in Perth from April 26.
