Ruff Ryders to Embark on ’20th Anniversary Tour’ in September
After their initial reunion at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., the Ruff Ryders are embarking on their "20th Anniversary Tour" in the U.S. this September.
The North American trek, produced by Live Nation, will reunite DMX, Eve, Swizz Beatz, the LOX and Drag-On together on one stage. In addition, rap veteran Fat Joe will open up on select dates. The tour launches on Sept. 7 in Miami and will hit cities in Miami, Houston, Baltimore, Md. and Los Angeles before ending their run in Las Vegas on Sept. 30.
Obviously, there are some concerns of DMX's well-being. The rapper checked himself into a California rehab in April amid reports of a relapse. Since X is on the bill we can only assume that he's focused and ready to rock the crowds.
DMX and the LOX are set to perform at this year's Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival on July 15 at the Brooklyn Bridge Park.
Tickets for the "Ruff Ryders 20th Anniversary Tour" will be available on Friday (June 23) at Live Nation.
