Wu-Tang Clan has announced dates for a month-long summer tour that will include performances at San Diego's Street Scene, two Rock the Bells concerts and a pair of intimate shows at New York's Webster Hall.
The tour will feature all the original members from the clan, whose roots go back nearly 15 years.
In addition to numerous solo shows and a special
Philadelphia Wu-Fest show featuring Rakim, Redman and Boot Camp Clik, Shaolin's Finest will connect with a number of prominent hip-hop acts along the way, including Mos Def, Talib Kweli and De La Soul at both Rock the Bells concerts and Kanye West, Snoop Dogg and Lupe Fiasco at San Diego's Street Scene.
The once-elusive group has been hitting the road more frequently in the past year, performing both group and solo classics.
While the group hasn't released any new albums since 2001's Iron Flag, Ghostface Killah recently released his critically-acclaimed Fishscale and Method Man's 4:21: The Day After is slated for release on August 22.
