Khalid is bringing his soulful croon down under this November. The nineteen-year old extraordinaire skyrocketed into acclaim last year following his debut single, Location; a poppy albeit powerful ballad that immediately solidified the singer-songwriter’s position among the prominent R&B artists of today.
2017 has already proved to be wildly successful for the VMA nominated ‘Best New Artist,’ with his debut album American Teen beloved by the masses in March before snagging a coveted feature on Calvin Harris’ star studded Funk Wav Bounces Vol.1 in May. As if the prospect of seeing him in Australia couldn’t get any better, the tour announcement comes off the back of a series of phenomenal shows throughout North America and Europe.

Additionally, the Australian tour announcement coincided with the release of the music video for Young Dumb & Broke, the artist’s latest single in which director Calmatic (Anderson.Paak’s ‘Come Down’ & ZAYN ft. PARTYNEXTDOOR’s ‘Still Got Time’) takes the young star back to the not so distant memory of high school, albeit alongside Dennis Haskins (Mr Belding, Saved By The Bell), Rachel Leigh Cook (She’s All That) and many other actors famous for their roles in high-school based films and television.
As such, it’s safe to say Khalid will be greeted with worthy fanfare upon touring Australia. You can catch the R&B wonder-kid at the dates below.
