Due to the enormous success of their 3 summer shows, hailed by critics and fans alike as “gig of the year”, hip hop superstar Nas and reggae legend Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley have announced 3 UK dates for spring 2011. Tickets go onsale today and the dates are as follows:
London – 31st March – Wembley arena.
Glasgow – 1st April – O2 Academy Glasgow.
Manchester – 2nd April – O2 Apollo Manchester.
The set will consist of the biggest songs from both artist’s careers as well the bulk of their collaborative studio album, Distant Relatives which was released earlier this year to universal critical acclaim. Featuring the signature instrumentation and musicianship of Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley with the hard-hitting beats and lyrics of Nas, the album title refers not only to the bond between the artists, but the connection to their African ancestry, which inspired the album both musically and lyrically.
This is an event not to be missed, tickets are on sale now from Ticketmaster, and you can check out the lead single ‘As We Enter’ from the critically acclaimed album below.
