The [artist id="1025"]Wu-Tang Clan[/artist] will take their act on the road this winter. The New York collective is set to launch a limited U.S. trek with a jaunt kicking off December 4 in San Diego. The Wu will also make stops in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Boston, New York City and Philadelphia before wrapping things up in Millvale, Pennsylvania, on New Year’s Eve.
The crew most recently toured this past summer as part of the Rock the Bells Tour . That run featured the Wu performing tracks from their seminal debut, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). Standing in for the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard was the charismatic rapper’s son Boy Jones . The upstart explained his excitement about joining the legendary act on the road and how he’d honed his own skills to be stage-ready.
“It feels great,” Jones told MTV News at the time. “It’s me. It’s his son. A son is like a father, he always gotta do what his father does. He’s born in that type of way. It ain’t nothing else to it. I got the call from RZA [to go on tour] when I was feeding my babies baby food. ‘You going on the tour.’ I’m running. I need that bread. Young Dirty Bastard raps hard too. I ain’t doing it for free. I need money and I rap hard.”
