This 2022 tour will mark Tyler, the Creator’s first headlining show in over 8 years.
He had previously cancelled his 2015 tour after a visa ban campaign by the feminist group Collective Shout. Collective Shout launched a petition to immigration minister Peter Dutton in July 2015.
They rallied to cancel his visa to perform due to lyrics that included references to rape and violence against women.
This campaign proved successful, and Tyler did not play his 2015 Australian tour, much to many fans chagrin. Subsequently, Collective Shout’s Coralie Allison was unfortunately barraged with death threats.
Tickets for the Call Me If You Get Lost Tour will be available on Thursday, September 2nd.
