In November 2016, Australia’s biggest radio network and most successful touring promoter teamed up to deliver one of the most talked-about concert events in recent years. The Hit Network teamed up with Frontier Touring and Illusive Presents to transform their juggernaut radio brand ‘RNB Fridays’ into a special, large-scale concert series – the inaugural line-up featuring Nelly, TLC, Mya, 112, Montell Jordan, Blackstreet, Blu Cantrell, Dante Thomas, Fatman Scoop, Kevin Lyttle and DJ Horizon.

Selling out nationally within a matter of hours, the tour saw over 50,000+ fans pack arenas across five cities to experience the biggest RNB party series in Australian history. The Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide events even broke their respective long-standing venue records for highest attendance. The energy was palpable, with perhaps the biggest scream of the night in response to the announcement that RNB Fridays Live would return in 2017.
