Stops include Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane & Auckland in December 2022

Frontier Touring and Illusive Presents are excited to announce that after rescheduling his FOTO tour in both 2020, and again in 2021 due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, American recording artist, songwriter and producer KOTA The Friend will finally perform for fans in both Australia and New Zealand when his Flight Night 2022 tour arrives this December.

“I’m excited to finally have a chance to perform in front of my friends in Auckland, Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne. Bringing the Flight Night experience down under is going to be an amazing vibe.” – KOTA The Friend

Having self-released a massive five new studio albums since he was originally meant to tour back in 2020, the Brooklyn-born artist will perform at upgraded Sydney, Melbourne, and Auckland venues with increased capacities, including Metro Theatre (NSW) on Wednesday 7 December, 170 Russell (VIC) on Thursday 8 December, and Tuning Fork (NZ) on Tuesday 13 December. The Brisbane show will remain at Woolly Mammoth (QLD) on the rescheduled date of Saturday 10 December.

Tickets for the original performances will be valid for the rescheduled dates with no further action required.
