October 11, 2012
(Los Angeles, CA) Tech N9ne continues his breakthrough 2012 with an upcoming “Live In Europe” tour that includes 22 stops. The Kansas City rap pioneer kicks off his jaunt with special guest Krizz Kaliko November 8 at a gig at The Islington Academy in London and wraps the outing December 1 at La Bellevilloise in Paris. The full itinerary is below and on www.therealtechn9ne.com.
The “Live In Europe” tour will be a fitting bookend for Tech N9ne’s remarkable 2012. The independent artist was named one of Forbes’ Cash Kings 2012: Hip-Hop’s 20 Top Earners in September. He was one of only two independent artists who earned a slot in the magazine’s Top 20, which also included such industry heavyweights as Dr. Dre, Diddy and Jay-Z.
On the tour front, Tech N9ne made history with the “Hostile Takeover 2012” Tour, a record-breaking outing that featured 90 shows in 99 days. Prior to hitting Europe next month, the prolific rapper will also be headlining the prestigious A3C Hip Hop Festival 2012 in Atlanta on October 13.
Tech N9ne was No. 95 on Pollstar’s 2012 Mid-Year ranking of the Top 100 Worldwide Tours in terms of ticket sales. He made No. 97 in terms of gross dollars taken in for North American Tours. He is one of three rappers on the list, behind only Drake and Pitbull.
On the music side, Tech N9ne’s digital-only Klusterfuk EP debuted in March as the No. 1 independent album in the country, according to SoundScan and Billboard, which track album sales. In July, he earned a gold certification for his “Caribou Lou” single. Last month, the Missouri rapper released the E.B.A.H. EP. An acronym for “Evil Brain Angel Heart,” the 10-track collection features several sides of the Kansas City rapper’s personality. His next EP, Boiling Point, will be released October 30. His next studio album will be released in the first quarter of 2013 on Tech N9ne’s Strange Music imprint.
