Run The Jewels Unveil RTJ3 Spring European, UK Tour Dates
Run The Jewels have announced a short spring European and UK tour in support of their new album RTJ3.
The 8-date trek across Europe will kick off on March 29 in Belfast. They will then spend the next 10 days in Europe. After the tour kick off in Belfast, Killer Mike and El-P will make one more stop in Ireland at Dublin on March 30 and then two gigs in England at Manchester and London on March 31 and April 1 respectively.
They have a festival gig at Snowbombing in Austria, before rounding out the tour with shows in Amsterdam, Brussels and Paris on successive nights.
European Run The Jewels fans may be worried that they are getting short-changed on live shows from Run The Jewels this year, but El-P is here to assure them that is not the case. This is just the first round of gigs that they could fit in now and there will be more shows later in the year. Always keep a keen eye on festival gigs, which they already have a few booked this summer in Europe.
don't worry guys, we'll come back to europe and the u.k. for a more extensive tour in 2017. these dates are just what we could fit in now.
