Saba Plays The Academy March 2019
The Chicago-born rapper, Saba, returns to Ireland for his second headline tour.
Playing the Green Room in 2017, Saba returns to The Academy on March 15th for a second Irish headline tour. Mere months after the fatal stabbing of his best friend, and cousin, Walter Long Jr. in February 2017, Saba commenced his first headlining world tour. With a heavy heart, he delivered emotional performances both in North America and Europe as part of his Bucket List Project Tour. The album, Bucket List Project has since been named one of the Best Rap Albums of the Year by Rolling Stone.
He returns this time around touring his new album 'Care For Me', penned through the emotional grievances of his cousin, his social anxiety and personal relationships with family and God. The album has received critical acclaim worldwide. 'Care For Me' was released on April 5th and since, singles off the album 'Busy' and 'Life' have respectively been featured in top tier playlists including Apple Music's 'The A-List' and Spotify's 'Most Necessary'. 'Care For Me' has also been named Best New Music by Pitchfork.
Tickets for the highly anticipated gig go on sale on Friday 16th November at 1pm at only €20, and can be purchased via Ticketmaster.
