RnB Fridays Live 2018 – The Party of the Year Returns With Hottest Line-up To Date

RNB Fridays Live – aka the party of the year – is BACK! Illusive Presents, Frontier Touring and Hit Network have raised the bar once again in 2018, bringing to the stage the biggest line-up to date and off-the-chart production to match: we’re talking A-class lighting effects, mammoth sound, tremendous LED video screens and enough pyro that you’d better pack sunscreen.

Landing in Perth, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Sydney for one night only, the series moves into its biggest venues yet to house the inevitable demand. Melbourne scales all the way up to Etihad Stadium, Sydney relocates to Spotless Stadium and Adelaide moves to the famous Showgrounds, with Brisbane and Perth remaining at their existing outdoor venues. These venues will be transformed into the biggest parties each city has ever seen, with over seven glorious hours of live performances. Yep, this year is serious.

Don’t miss your only chance to watch these stars perform all their hits live all on the one stage. If the first two years of RNB Fridays Live is anything to go by, you’ll want to snap up your tickets up ASAP or you’ll be following the biggest party of the year via your Instagram feed.

ANNOUNCING THE BIGGEST NAMES OF RNB FRIDAYS LIVE TO DATE

USHER Introducing the hottest name to grace the stage at RNB Fridays Live, one of the world’s best-selling musical artists, 8x Grammy Award winner and global superstar Usher.

THE party starter – Usher will bring his sharp, effortless moves Down Under with countless anthems ‘Love In This Club’, ‘Burn’, ‘Confessions Part II’, ‘DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love’, ‘I Don’t Mind’, ‘U Got It Bad’, ‘Crash’ and all-round mega hit ‘Yeah!’ erupting through the stadium leaving no option but to dance for your life. A born entertainer, Usher brings all the hits (plus some special treats!) to the stage for an epic headline performance this November and you won’t want to miss out!


LIL JON – With the power to transform any show into a nightclub, Crunk legend Lil Jon’s contagious energy will take no prisoners at RNB Fridays Live 2018.

T-PAIN – Genre-smashing auto-tune king T-Pain will keep you dancing with his never ending party catalogue (‘Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin)’ ‘Blame It’, ‘Im N Luv (Wit A Stripper)’ and infectious hooks on tunes like ‘Get Low’ (Flo Rida), ‘Good Life’ (Kanye West), ‘Kiss Kiss’ (Chris Brown) and ‘All I Do Is Win’ (DJ Khaled). Get ready to make that ‘Booty Wurk (One Cheek At a Time)’!


TREY SONGZ – Returning to Australian shores for the first time in almost a decade is none other than ‘Mr. Steal Your Girl’, Trey Songz. Turning up the heat with sleek off-the-chart jams ‘Can’t Help But Wait’, ‘Slow Motion’, ‘Heart Attack’, ‘It’s A Vibe (with 2 Chainz ft. Ty Dolla $ign & Jhene Aiko)’  and cheeky Nicki Minaj collab ‘Bottoms Up’, don’t miss the chance to see RNB’s favourite Playboy live on stage!

NEXT – Perfecting the line-up is smooth musical trio Next, whose streetwise lyrics and polished soulful harmonies in ‘Wifey’ and US #1 single ‘Too Close’ will take you back to that high school dance you never want to end!


FATMAN SCOOP – No RNB Fridays Live would be complete without ultimate hype man and RNB Fridays Live alumni Fatman Scoop (‘Be Faithful’), who will be hosting all five shows!


HORIZON & YO! MAFIA – Keeping party vibes pumping will be Australia’s #1 RNB DJ, Horizon and the International Party DJ YO! MAFIA.
