Rapper The Game has now had his visa approved and will be on his way to Australia for the Roc Tha Block tour!
To accommodate him there has been some changes to the tour dates and lineup. 'This is Why I'm Hot' singer Mims will be replaced by R&B artist Sisqo (who you might remember from his hit the 'Thong Song'), and instead of Juelz Santana, Latino hip-hopper Pitbull will be playing.
Smash hit Akon is also scheduled to appear but is also awaiting visa clearance from immigration.
According to organisers of the event, "this is by far the biggest urban music experience ever staged in Australia and New Zealand. An incredible 30 million records have been sold by this collective group of entertainers and they've also spent more than 75 weeks in the top ten of the Australian singles charts."
New dates are as follows:
Wednesday August 29 - Vodafone Arena, Melbourne
Thursday August 30 - Entertainment Centre, Adelaide
Friday August 31 - Entertainment Centre, Sydney
Tickets are on sale now!
