It's official: The Rock the Bells tour is coming! What started as a couple of shows in NYC and California featuring possibly the best quality hip-hop lineup ever has been expanded into a national tour.
Prepare yourself: It hits Miami's Bayfront Park on August 4. Tickets go on sale June 9, and they won't last (the NYC date sold out in two days). It's possibly the most amazing hip-hop package we've gotten in several years.
Like Wu-Tang? How about Nas? Cypress Hill? Talib Kweli? After the jump, check out the flyer, read the confirmed lineup so far and get ready to weep tears of boom-bap joy.
Other supporting acts will be announced as time goes on, so visit www.rockthebells.net for updates.
