Hip Hop Legends & BagThing favourites ‘Wu Tang Clan‘ have announced a rare Manchester appearance on August 3rd @ Academy 1. This show will be incredibly special and will probably sell out very quickly. Tickets go on sale at 9am Friday 11th June (aka tomorrow) and you can buy them HERE.
The show is being promoted by OH Productions, Now Wave and One Inch Badge and this is what they have to say about the event:
One of the most important groups in Hip Hop history, and a worldwide phenomenon, Now Wave, One Inch badge and OH productions are bringing the legendary Wu Tang Clan to the gravel pit that is Manchester for an extremely rare live show on August 3rd at Manchester Academy.
A collective of friends from the “Shaolin” slums of Staten Island and Brooklyn New York, their album Enter the Wu Tang (36 Chambers) is widely considered one of the greatest debut albums of all time in any genre, still sounding as raw and revolutionary today as it did 17 years ago. RZA’s gritty production combined with some of the most skilled and unique MC’s in the game has gained them devout fans all across the globe.
Many of the MC’s are legendary solo artists in their own right, and all will be bringing the ruckus onstage together for the first time in the UK in years – RZA, GZA, Method Man, Ghostface, Raekwon, Inspectah Deck, Masta Killa, U-God, Capadonna, Streetlife and Mathematics…the only notable absence being the much missed Ol’ Dirty Bastard, who will only be present in spirit! As anyone lucky enough to have caught them live before will know, as well as having more classics than a Reebok factory, they also perform many of their solo anthems.
This will probably be your last chance in a very long time to catch the entire clan of killer bees live on stage together, and the show is sure to sell out so you are advised to protect your next by purchasing tickets as soon as possible to avoid tearz. Dig out your Wu wear, sharpen your liquid swords and get ready to throw your W signs up in the air, this will be a legendary night.
This is what to expect;
