Hall of Fame inductees, Hip-Hop revolutionaries, and social rights activists Public Enemy have today announced a much-anticipated return to Australia to commence their ‘On The Grid 35th Anniversary Tour this coming October. Fighting the power with them across the country will be none other than Australian hip-hop duo, A.B. Original.

Public Enemy was formed in 1985 in Long Island, New York, by friends Chuck D and Flavor Flav and their debut album, Yo! Bum Rush The Show (1987), laid the foundation for their revolutionary sound, blending assertive beats with sharp social commentary.

Beyond their musical contributions, Public Enemy's impact extends to their activism and cultural influence. They were, and remain, at the forefront of the fight against racial injustice and inequality, using their platform to raise awareness and spark meaningful dialogue. 

A.B. Original is the collaboration between artist, activist and author Briggs and MC and multi-ARIA Award winning producer Trials. Indigenous artists from Yorta Yorta and Ngarrindjeri country respectively, A.B. Original are known for their fearless address of racial, societal and systemic injustice. Their purpose is to stand, call out and challenge the status quo of Australia, and provide truth-telling through First Nations’ perspectives on history, society and the Australian national narrative.

This mighty union of Long Island’s finest and A.B. ORIGINAL will touch down in October.
