Two of the greatest rap acts of the 90s – Wu-Tang Clan and Nas – are hitting the road together once more. They are set to embark on a co-headlining tour, reviving their NY State of Mind billing for a second year.
Wu-Tang Clan and Nas recently toured together during the late summer and early fall of 2022. It was their first outing under the NY State of Mind banner. The tour included 24 stops at amphitheaters across the U.S., with one additional date in Toronto. Ironically enough, there were no dates in New York.
The second round of their NY State of Mind tour is set to kick off on May 9 in Auckland, New Zealand, before heading to Australia for a group of dates. The European leg of the tour will start in June, and make stops in Copenhagen, Denmark, Paris, and more. The bulk of the tour will then happen in North America, beginning in September. Stops include Nashville, Tampa, Brooklyn, Chicago, Vancouver, Seattle, and Las Vegas.
Tickets for the North American shows are currently available for early access through American Express through Thursday, March 2 at 10pm local time. General on sale begins on Friday, March 3 at 9am local time via Live Nation.
In other Wu-Tang and Nas news, Nas’ latest album was November’s King’s Disease III, while Wu-Tang last issued A Better Tomorrow in 2014. They followed that with the controversial single-edition Once Upon a Time in Shaolin a year later. Members of Wu-Tang Clan recently joined Logic on “Wu Tang Forever” and Scottish rock group Texas for the song “Hi.”
