Rapper Illy all set for Gladstone show

AUSSIE rap artist Illy is in Gladstone and geared up for a big show on Thursday night.

Held at the Harvey Road Tavern, the almost sold out gig kicks off at 7.30pm.

The singer of hits Tightrope, It Can Wait and On and On has been to Gladstone before, but is back bigger than ever this year.

Illy discovered music when he was 12 years old, listening to gangster rap and then finding indie, rock and then hip-hop rap.

As soon as he heard Hilltop Hoods, his interest shifted to Australian music.

Illy's first album Long Story Short hit the shelves when he was 23.

Now 28 years old and a well-known face worldwide, he has plans in the next 12 months to bring out a fifth album that he's currently working on in the recording studio.

Tickets are $34.54 each.
