Wu-Tang Clan will be headlining the tour in celebration of the 25th anniversary of their influential album Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). The album sold more than 30,000 copies in the first week of it’s release.
Public Enemy, meanwhile, is celebrating 30 years of It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back, which sold over 1 million copies.
De La Soul is also celebrating a 30th anniversary of their esteemed album 3 Feet High and Rising, which hit #1 on Billboard‘s R&B/Hip-hop charts.
So far, only three shows have been announced, all taking place in the UK. The “Gods of Rap” will tour arenas in London, Manchester, and Glasgow. All shows will be hosted by DJ Premier.
“I don’t believe anything like this has been done in the UK before on this level,” said SJM concert promoter Chris Wareing to Music Week. “This tour creates a legacy, it’s a moment.”
