Hip hop heads are high in anticipation for the Wu-Tang Clan’s imminent return to the UK with shows in Edinburgh, Manchester, Birmingham and London.

The Beatles of hip-hop, the Wu Tang Clan have announced a full UK tour in June and if you can’t see them at Glastonbury full tour dates are below.

Following in his famous father’s shoes, Young Dirty Bastard will take charge of the rhymes written by his father Ol’ Dirty Bastard and appear on-stage with the whole Clan in the UK for the first time in the UK.

Purple Revolver expect Shaolin’s finest to be back to their blistering best. The group continually splinter into solo projects, with fans often doubting if the band will ever reform.

Springing back into life last year, Wu Tang Clan have announced a series of British tour dates. The hip hop collective promised that all surviving original members will be onstage together.

RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God and Masta Killa will all be present performing songs from their seminal back catalogue as well as a tantalising glimpse of new material.

Apparently working on a new EP, Wu Tang Clan will give British fans a taste of where their music is heading.

GZA said: “I feel really great about this tour and I love to perform in the UK. The British fans can expect lots of energy and we’ll be bringing our best, as we always do. We’re really excited about all performing together again and definitely looking forward to it.”

Opening in London’s HMV Forum on June 11th, the hip hop crew will play two nights in the capital. Later Wu Tang Clan will head to Birmingham before playing a one-off show at Edinburgh’s Picture House.

Ending in Manchester on June 15th, the short tour is the most substantial piece of Wu Tang activity on these shores since 2007.

Tickets are due to go on sale shortly.
