Those of you who have wandered around inner city areas with your eagle eyes equipped over the past few days may have spotted an ominous series of posters plastered up around the traps, all sporting the iconic logo of the Wu-Tang Clan and naught else but a promise that they’d be coming soon.
Turns out they literally meant really soon, as the infamous Clan has dropped dates for a whistle stop tour of Australia in FEBRUARY. As in, a little over two months from now. Before the summer’s over. Holy crap.
The group – sporting the famous lineup of the RZA, the GZA, (the sadly departed) Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Inspectah Deck, Raekwon the Chef, U-God, Ghostface Killah, and the Method Man – will take in huge stages in Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane on their 3-show tour.
Having recently run into a spurt of productivity, the group last released A Better Tomorrow – their sixth studio album – in 2014.
The group also put together the highly publicised project Once Upon A Time In Shaolin…, a one-of-a-kind double album limited to a single copy, that was sold at auction for around US$2million to, as it turns out, that absolute bell-end pharmaceutical price-hike dipshit.
Tickets for the Wu tour go on sale from Monday, December 21st via both Ticketek (Melbourne, Sydney) and Ticketmaster (Brisbane).
Full dates are as follows.

Tuesday, February 23rd – Margaret Court Arena, Melbourne VIC
Wednesday, February 24th – Allphones Arena, Sydney NSW
Friday, February 26th – Riverstage, Brisbane QLD
