The biggest and most influ­en­tial rap groups in the world are com­ing togeth­er for three very spe­cial UK arena shows in May 2019. Head­liners Wu-Tang Clan who will be joined by Pub­lic Enemy and De La Soul are set to per­form huge dates at The SSE Arena Wemb­ley in Lon­don on 10th May, Manchester Arena on 11th May and Glas­gow The SSE Hydro on 12th May.

This once in a life­time tour marks the anniversary of three icon­ic land­mark albums; Wu-Tang Clan’s ‘Enter The Wu-Tang 36 Cham­bers’, Pub­lic Enemy’s ‘It Takes a Nation of Mil­lions to Hold Us Back’ and De La Soul’s ‘3 Feet High and Rising’. The dates will also be hos­ted and presen­ted by the legendary DJ Premi­er.

Twenty-five years ago, The Wu-Tang Clan changed hip-hop music forever. Burst­ing onto the music scene with the release of ‘Enter the Wu-Tang 36 Cham­bers’, the group quickly became recog­nised for its innov­at­ive beats and clev­er lyr­ics, as well as the diverse per­son­al­it­ies and tal­ents that make up its nine mem­ber hip-hop group. The Wu-Tang Clan has released sev­en gold and plat­in­um stu­dio albums with world­wide sales of more than 40 mil­lion albums. With the release of their debut album in 1993 songs like “C.R.E.A.M” and “Pro­tect Ya Neck” intro­duced hip-hop pion­eer, The RZA, as a ground­break­ing hip-hop crafts­man.

Pub­lic Enemy rewro­te the rules of hip-hop, becom­ing the most influ­en­tial and con­tro­ver­sial rap group of the late ‘80s and, for many, the defin­it­ive rap group of all time. Cel­eb­rat­ing thirty years of their sem­in­al album ‘It Takes a Nation of Mil­lions to Hold Us Back’, it was this record that made Pub­lic Enemy a house­hold name. The album, which included the singles“Don’t Believe the Hype” and “Bring the Noise,” was hailed as a hip-hop mas­ter­piece and went on to sell more than a mil­lion cop­ies.

De La Soul’s acclaimed eponym­ous debut album cata­pul­ted the trio to become one of the biggest hip-hop bands and forged a last­ing music­al leg­acy. Con­sist­ently placed on ‘greatest albums’ lists their biggest com­mer­cial album to date ‘3 Feet High and Rising’ includes singles “Me Myself and I”, “The Magic Num­ber”, “Buddy”, and “Eye Know”.

Col­lect­ively all three groups have per­formed sell out shows across the globe and cre­ated revolu­tion­ary music that has influ­enced mil­lions of people world­wide. The tour will see the Gods of Rap each per­form icon­ic sets for three monu­ment­al UK live dates that are not to be missed!
