Eric B. and Rakim Are Touring Again
Eric B. and Rakim are reuniting for their first tour in 25 years. Unfortunately they are not coming to Australia.
Eric B. and Rakim are reuniting for their first tour in 25 years, and tweeted the amazing news as well as a list of their eighteen planned tour destinations. The tour is set to kick off on April 8 in Boston and finishes on May 5 in San Francisco.
Unfortunately, they deleted the tweet which read “It’s time to show you”, and the MC/ producer power duo have had a long history of teasing shows only to disappoint fans with plans that have fallen through. Fret not, as a rep for Rakim confirmed that the tour is definitely going ahead.
The tour is a follow up to the group’s one-off reunion show at Harlem’s Apollo Theater last June which celebrated the 30th anniversary of their iconic debut album Paid in Full. Alongside the show, Paid in Full was also reissued on “money green” vinyl.
We’ve listed the tour dates below if you’re lucky enough to be in the US during this time.
