Wu-Tang is listed as the official headliners of the tour while DJ Premier is slated to host each evening. Wu is honoring the 25th anniversary of Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers); Public Enemy is honoring 30 years of It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back, while De La Soul is honoring the 30th anniversary of 3 Feet High and Rising.

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