Genesis Owusu announces fall North American headlining tour

Australia’s genre-defying hip hop/post-punk/etc artist Genesis Owusu is gearing up to begin a North American tour supporting Paramore and Bloc Party, and if you’re going, you should definitely make sure not to miss his opening set. He put on one of the most memorable sets we saw at SXSW this year, and it was the kind of attention-grabbing set that would win over everyone in the room, whether they were already familiar with his music or not.

Genesis has now also announced a headlining North American tour for this fall. Tickets go on sale Friday (5/19) at 10 AM local time with an artist presale starting Wednesday (5/17) at 10 AM.

Brooklyn gets a stop on October 20 at Elsewhere Hall. All dates are listed below.

Genesis recently released a ZHU remix of his great 2022 single “Get Inspired” and you can check that out below too (along with the original).
