Wu-Tang Clan, one of the most critically acclaimed and successful hip-hop groups of all time, are returning to the UK for live dates to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their seminal record Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).

The group, originally from Staten-Island, consisted of nine rappers, many of whom forged successful solo careers including RZA, Ghostface Killah, Method Man and Raekwon. The two UK dates will see all living members of the group reunite on-stage together to perform tracks from their back catalogue as well as new album A Better Tomorrow. “This may sound unbelievable,” said RZA upon announcing the shows, “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.”
