Having just released three new singles to complement his wildly popular debut track ‘3 Nights’, multi-talented songwriter, rapper and DIY maestro Dominic Fike will be heading to Australia and New Zealand for the very first time this October.
Shrouded in myth and legend at the age of 23, Fike is first and foremost well-known for his effortless style as he blends disparate influences like Jack Johnson, Brockhampton and the Red Hot Chili Peppers into a multicoloured hybrid of generational experimentation.
Tickets go on sale at 10am Friday July 12.

‘3 Nights’ is the best example: an addictive bop complemented by a run-down rap that has caught fire all over the world, sending it to the top of the charts in the US, UK, AU, achieving Platinum status here in New Zealand and amassing over 200 million worldwide streams.
‘3 Nights’ was taken from Fike’s debut EP Don’t Forget About Me, Demos, a 6-track collection originally released in December 2017. The EP reflected a tough upbringing while signalling an exciting future and was quickly embraced by the likes of DJ Khaled, Billie Eilish as well as Fike’s friend and fellow DIY desperado Yeek.
These types of juxtapositions are exactly what make Fike such an interesting (and popular) artist. His most talked about tattoo is a rendering of the famous Apple logo in the teardrop position – a misunderstood tribute to his sister which serves as a reminder of what he’s working towards.
With three new singles ‘Açaí Bowl’, ‘Rollerblades’ and ‘Phone Numbers’ just released, Dominic Fike is poised to push his origins into wider notoriety. As he gathers steam worldwide, his local fanbase await what will be one of the most anticipated debut tours in recent memory. Tickets for his Auckland show will be furiously sought after.
