Widely regarded as one of the most influential figures in rap history, Ice Cube will bring his iconic music to the Show Theatre at Hard Rock Casino Vancouver on Friday, October 4.
Ice Cube began his career two decades ago with N.W.A. after penning some of the most memorable lyrics for N.W.A’s groundbreaking track “Straight Outta Compton,” Ice Cube broke away from the height of the group’s success. As he moved on to launch his solo career, his debut studio album AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted, sold more than a million copies. A concept album about the fall and rise of a black man, Ice Cube’s solo sophomore effort Death Certificate debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200, eventually selling over two million copies.
His impressive musical career also includes the multi-platinum success of his two-part album War & Peace, as well as the hit albums Lethal Injection, Bootlegs & B-Slides, The Predator, the gold-certified and independently released Laugh Now, Cry Later, Raw Footage, and I Am The West.
In 2015, Ice Cube’s film production company released the Oscar-nominated and critically acclaimed N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton via Universal Pictures. The film broke box-office records, emerging as the #1 film release for three consecutive weeks and grossing $201 million worldwide.
Ice Cube was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as part of N.W.A in 2016 and was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2017. To date, he has sold over 10 million solo albums.
Tickets for Ice Cube go on sale on Friday, August 2, 2019, with prices starting at $159.50 for General Admission Standing and $169.50 for the Theatre (plus service charges).
