Tyler Oakley, Andrea Russett, others headed to Australia for Amplify tour
The Amplify Tour breaks ground for YouTube stars.
America’s favorite YouTubers are about to get their Aussie on as part of the 2016 Amplify Live Tour.
Stars like Tyler Oakley, Andrea Russett, Jc Caylen, and Kion Lawley are all announced as part of the initial lineup. It will also include New Zealander Jamie Curry and Australian Tyde Levi, Troye Sivan‘s brother. The tour will hit seven locations around Australia and New Zealand, including Sydney, Brisbane, and Perth.
Amplify Live is among the growing number of live YouTuber events, which range from the staple of VidCon in Anaheim, California, each year, to the DigiTour and London’s Summer in the City. There are also tons of smaller versions specific to locations, looking to cash in on fans willing to spend money for time in the same room as their favorite stars, and even more for photo and autograph sessions.
YouTubers have taken trips down under in the past, but often as part of a single event, or on their own specific tours. Amplify Live will be a chance for Australian fans to see many of their favorites in one evening. The tour is sponsored by cosmetics brand Rimmel London, and will take place in April. The ticket prices and specific dates will not be released until Feb. 4, giving fans a week to get excited for their favorite YouTubers.
