Kehlani Adds Australia, New Zealand Dates To ‘Blue Water Road Trip’ World Tour
Kehlani has extended their ‘Blue Water Road Trip’ world tour to include dates in Australia and New Zealand.
Celebrating the release of their latest album, Blue Water Road, the fast-rising singer will venture to the southern hemisphere next January. Kicking off their tour in Auckland, New Zealand, the R&B star will then head to Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth, wrapping up in the lattermost city on January 31. According to a press release, a Brisbane date will also be announced soon.
A Live Nation presale runs from 11am AEST this Wednesday (June 1), and runs until 8am on Friday (June 3). General sale tickets will be available from 9am on Friday.
Kehlani first announced their ‘Blue Water Road Trip World Tour’ earlier this month. In addition to the newly announced Australasian dates, the jaunt will see them perform across the UK, Europe and North America.
Blue Water Road was released in April via Atlantic. It is Kehlani’s third studio album, following up on 2020’s It Was Good Until It Wasn’t. They released four singles from the album: Altar, Little Story, Everything and Up At Night, the lattermost being a collaborative effort with Justin Bieber.
The record has been another critical success for the R&B singer. Executive produced by Pop Wansel, the album features guest appearances from Justin Bieber, Syd, Blxst, Jessie Reyez, Ambré and Thundercat.
In a four-star review of the album, the NME described called the record Khelani’s “most lyrically intriguing”, noting how they left behind “the melancholy of the past to embrace a bright new land. This album finds Kehlani in spectacular form – softer, stronger and better than ever.”

Friday 20 January – Auckland, Spark Arena
Wednesday 25 January – Sydney, Hordern Pavilion
Friday 27 January – Melbourne, Sidney Myer Music Bowl
