Azealia Banks Mermaid Ball 2012 tour dates

AZEALIA BANKS IS BRINGING MERMAID BALL 2012 TO LOS ANGELES WITH SPECIAL GUESTS // SET FOR HENRY FONDA THEATRE ON SATURDAY, JULY 14TH // FANTASEA MIXTAPE RELEASE MOVED TO JULY 11TH

“Banks entered her ball as any semi-aquatic celebutante would: flanked on either side by her girls, and wearing nothing but seashells, jewels, some well-placed pasties and her milky, mischievous smile. Banks’ penchant for foul-mouthed fun and sticky hooks are unstoppable: during her rising B-side ‘Liquorice,’ fans eagerly belted the harmonious bridge without her help.” -ROLLING STONE, on the NYC Mermaid Ball

AZEALIA BANKS PRESENTS MERMAID BALL 2012 + SPECIAL GUESTS has been confirmed to take place Henry Fonda Theatre in Hollywood, CA on Saturday, July 14. Tickets will go on sale this Thursday, June 28. — If you’re in the greater LA area, plan on being there with bells on!

Earlier this month, the Harlem native made her hometown debut at NY’s Bowery Ballroom, bringing her sold-out extravaganza, the original MERMAID BALL – complete with four opening acts, floating sea creatures, a mermaid costume contest, and ehough cotton candy and balloons to fill up a football stadium!

Also, Azealia pushed back the release of her FANTASEA MIXTAPE to July 11th. This past weekend, the sassy hiphoptress revealed to NME that it will include a cover of a track by 90’s icons, The Prodigy. She confirmed the mixtape has “a sea theme, but it’s less obviously mermaid stuff and more like witchy hip-hop and some real rave shit.”

Her full-length debut album BROKE WITH EXPENSIVE TASTE is set for release later this fall.
