After announcing their partnership weeks ago, Wyclef Jean, De La Soul, and Black Eyed Peas have hammered out the first stretch of dates for the latest edition of MTV’s Campus Invasion tour.
After years of rock-heavy Campus Invasion outings, this hip-hop-flavored take on the annual college tour will first touch down on October 3 in Providence, Rhode Island, on the campus of Johnson & Wales University, with more dates lined up through the end of October.
As we previously reported, the trek will mark Wyclef’s first extensive U.S. tour behind his recently released second solo effort, “The Ecleftic – 2 Sides II A Book” (see “Wyclef, De La Soul, Black Eyed Peas Set For Campus Invasion”
). For De La Soul, the tour gives the group the opportunity to promote its “Art Official Intelligence: Mosaic Thump,” which hit stores last month, while Black Eyed Peas will get the chance to drum up support for its “Bridging The Gap,” which
arrives on September 26.
