I don’t normally post too much about music here on Sick Chirpse but this really is too big an event to ignore as three of the biggest hip hop bands of all time have announced that they’ll be touring the UK together in what’s being described as the biggest hip hop tour of all time.

Wu Tang Clan, Public Enemy and De La Soul are going to be playing three dates in this country at the The SSE Arena Wembley on May 10, Manchester Arena on May 11, and Glasgow The SSE Hydro on May 12. The event will be hosted by DJ Premier and will feature all three acts celebrating their seminal records Wu-Tang Clan’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).
If that isn’t enough to convince you to go out and buy a ticket (I’m guessing they’re probably gonna be at least £60 so you better hope you’ve been working your ass off since those records came out) then here’s SJM promoter Chris Wareing hyping it up:
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.
I mean he’s not wrong. This is gonna be a mega event and you’re probably gonna wanna check it out if you like hip hop even slightly. Go for it.
