The concert is part of Rex Orange County’s world tour Pony, promoting his latest studio album of the same name that was released in October. After Jakarta, he’s scheduled to perform in Singapore, Bangkok, and Manila.

Hailing from Surrey, Rex Orange County is known for his blend of bedroom pop, alternative hip hop, and neo soul with lyrics surrounding the theme of adolescent angst. He has released three studio albums so far: bcos u will never b free (2016), Apricot Princess (2017), and Pony.

Soon after the release of his second album, he drew the attention of American rapper Tyler, The Creator and was featured on the Flower Boy album, which he co-wrote and contributed vocals to. In 2018, Rex Orange County covered the Toy Story soundtrack, You’ve Got a Friend in Me, which he performed with the song’s creator Randy Newman.
