Boost Mobile in association with Guerilla Union have announced that Rock the Bells Festival—the world-class hip-hop festival series that occurred in three major markets this past summer—will be hitting venues nationwide in the Rock the Bells Tour Series Legendary hip-hop group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony—who were billed as the festival’s “Special Guests”—will continue celebrating their 20 year anniversary reunion as headliners of the Tour Series.
The Tour will kick off on October 26 at The Grove of Anaheim in Anaheim, California and continue through the rest of 2012, making stops in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Arizona, Milwaukee, Hawaii and Guam.
In addition to an exclusive performance from all five original members, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony will also pay tribute to the late Gangsta Rap pioneer, Eazy-E.
Krayzie Bone, one of the group’s members, says: “It's a wonderful thing that we were able to team up with Guerilla Union after the Rock the Bells experience was such a success. Now that the official reunion dates have been confirmed, I really look forward to getting back out there and reaching our fans and giving them what they been wanting for a very long time, and that's a tour with all five members. With the help of Guerrilla Union we can finally make that happen. It's going to be historical, mark my words.”
Guerilla Union founder Chang Weisberg adds: “Seeing all five members on stage at Rock the Bells this summer, for the first time in years, was a moment long-awaited in hip-hop! Those that made it to the festival in San Bernardino, Mountain View, or New Jersey experienced history right before their eyes. We do understand that, unfortunately, not everyone had this opportunity, but with the Rock the Bells Tour Series, we’re able to bring the music to the fans that weren’t able to come to us. Thanks especially to Bone Thugs’ booking agent Jamie Adler and long-time manager and CEO of A2Z Entertainment Steve Lobel, who were major players in realizing this reunion, people all over the nation will get a chance to witness a milestone in not just hip-hop, but music-history."
Tickets are now available. Fans are advised to check their local venue for info on tickets, and are encouraged to sign up for the Guerilla Union newsletter for important announcements and up-to-date information regarding the tour.
