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.
Azealia takes it to the wild, wild west in her new video for "Liquorice" directed by Rankin. Watch all the action here:
