Australia’s ‘RnB Fridays Live’ first launched in 2016 with 50,000 tickets sold, featuring artists like TLC, Nelly, 112, Mýa, Blackstreet, Montell Jordan, and Blu Cantrell.
It continued in 2017 with 90,000 tickets sold, and artists included Craig David, Ne-Yo, Kelly Rowland, En Vogue, Kelis, Mario, and Christina Milian.
Now it’s back in 2018, and for the first time, the shows have moved from Arenas to Stadiums. It’s set to run for over seven hours in total.
