Three of the biggest hip-hop stars will headline a major concert down under. Rappers Eminem, Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole will headline the Rapture stadium tour in Australia next year.

The four-date trek will kick off in Auckland, New Zealand on Feb. 15, which will be the first time Em has ever performed in the country. The tour will then hit Australia’s three major cities: Melbourne on Feb. 19, Brisbane on Feb. 20, and Sydney on Feb. 22.

Eminem will also curate the jaunt, which is being dubbed as a “game-changing hip-hop event.”

The only disappointing factor about this tour is that it’s not traveling to U.S. shores. A tour like this would go over well with rap fans here in the states.

Tickets for the Rapture tour will be available Oct. 31 with a pre-sale beginning Oct. 24. Prices range from $95 to $290.

“I am really excited to be working with Eminem on Rapture, an annual event with a long term vision of showcasing the best of the best in hip hop at affordable prices to the [fans],” said promoter Paul Dainty of the Dainty Group.
