Wu-Tang Clan, Public Enemy and De La Soul team up for joint UK tour

Bring da motherfuckin' ruckus

The 'God of Rap' tour might sound like an overly grandiose name for only three dates, but when you've got Wu-Tang Clan, Public Enemy and De La Soul all performing together then you can't really argue.

All three of the iconic rap groups will be playing shows together at The SSE Arena Wembley on May 10, Manchester Arena on May 11, and Glasgow The SSE Hydro on May 12, as they celebrate three historic releases: Wu-Tang’s Enter The Wu-Tang 36 Chambers (1993), Public Enemy’s It Takes a Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back (1988), and De La Soul’s 3 Feet High And Rising (1989).

Speaking to Music Week, SJM promoter Chris Wareing said: “I don’t believe anything like this has been done in the UK before on this level.”

“This tour creates a legacy, it’s a moment. The groups are the biggest in their genres, they’re all celebrating notable anniversaries of their biggest albums and I am led to believe this is the first time they have all been on the same bill together."

The tour will be hosted and presented by DJ Premier and tickets will go on general sale at 10am on January 25.

Here's something to get you in the mood, featuring a guest appearance by a ridiculously young Tim Westwood:
