Australian Wu-Tang Clan fans are in for a treat.

To see the entire Wu-Tang Clan live is a rarity these days. Maybe you’ll get Method Man, RZA, and GZA; other times you’ll get Ghostface Killah, RZA, and GZA. But it seems the legendary Staten Island rap collective will be performing with all of its original members for a special show — in Australia.

Celebrating the 25th anniversary of their debut album, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), the group will headline Australia’s Sydney Opera House on December 8 and 9. RZA, Method Man, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, U-God, Masta Killa, Inspectah Deck, and GZA are expected to perform. Later Wu-Tang member Cappadonna will also be present for the shows.

“The Sydney Opera House is one of the world’s most iconic venues,” RZA said in a statement. “Its architecture and acoustics are inspirations for various genres of artistic expressions. Wu-Tang Clan is cooking up something special for Australia. The Opera House will be infused with a dose of real hip hop that’s sure to rock from bottom to top. We can’t wait to perform there.”

Presale tickets are available Wednesday (July 18). The group will also be heading out on a U.S. tour, with dates and information on their website here.
