2 Live Crew Announces Australian Tour


Legendary nasty group 2 Live Crew has decided to embark on their first Australian concert for the remaining holiday season.

Starting December 26th at the Belvoir Amphitheatre in Perth, the 2 Live Crew members Marquis and Fresh Kid Ice plan to kick off the “Hot n’ Nasty” tour to perform some of the classics from the group.

“We are ready for Australia,” Fresh Kid Ice said in a statement. “We hope they’re ready for us! We’ll be playing the old hits and the new songs, and since it’s a 2 Live Crew show, anything can happen.”

When it comes to their first tour in Australia, the crew states they are ready to put on the best show.

“We’re looking forward to it,” says Brother Marquis. “We’re doing it old school, playing all the hits, some new stuff, and it’s all full of energy. With 2 Live Crew its start fast, then a fast song and more fast songs. We line ’em up back to back.”

Although it’s been 20 years since 2 Live Crew were acquitted of violating obscenity laws during a concert in Broward County, Florida, the album, As Nasty As They Wanna Be, is still remembered for the content that got them there and the history when the ruling was overturned and the Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal.

“It’s a good thing to be recognized for that and for opening the doors for other artists,” says Fresh Kid Ice, “but our thing is to continue making music and be as relevant now as we were then. We see a lot of  young groups making music a career, like it has been for us, so anything we did that helped make it happen is a positive thing.”
