Wu Tang Clan - UK Dates Announced For Wu Tang Clan 20th Anniversary Reunion

The New York hip-hop legends Wu Tang Clan will be reuniting and playing the UK in celebration of their 20th anniversary. Featuring such iconic members as RZA, Raekwon, GZA and Ghostface Killah, the band are scheduled to perform a one-off dates in Manchester and London. On July 25, 2013, they will play Manchester’s O2 Apollo and the following day, they head to London to play Brixton Academy.

The band are releasing a brand new track ‘A Better Tomorrow’ to mark the passing of two decades since the release of their debut album Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). RZA, whose real name is Robert Fitzgerald Diggs, explained why the group felt that it was the right time to get back together, twenty years after they first catapulted to fame. And it sounds as though they’re trying to correct some of the imperfections that crept into their legacy. “We need to, one time, completely, efficiently, properly, professionally represent our brand. One more time. But this time, showing up on time for press and for concerts and studio. Do it one time, perfect… This may sound unbelievable, but I told the crew in the first basement meeting that from my calculations, and from what I’m feeling, this will last 20 years.”

Sadly, the band are, of course, missing original member Ol’ Dirty Bastard who died aged 35 back in 2004. RZA remains keen to press on with the reunion, despite the absence of his old band mate, though, Gigwise reports: “There's enough of us still alive, and I think there's still enough fans out there. Hip-hop is stronger than ever, as far as worldwide recognition, and our name is synonymous with it.”
