US legendary hip-hop group Run DMC is set to return to the UK stage for the first time in three years, for a one-night-only exclusive show at the Eventim Apollo.

Bursting onto the scene in the early ‘80’s and widely acknowledged as one of the first artists to pioneer the new school hip-hop sound; MC’s Joseph ‘Run’ Simmons, Darryl ‘D.M.C’ McDaniels and the late DJ Jason ‘Jam Master Jay’ Mizell, are greatly recognized as the most influential and famous acts in the history of hip-hop culture.

Achieving notable firsts in the world of hip-hop music and credited as being the most responsible for pushing hip-hop into mainstream popular music, Run DMC was the first rap act to receive a Grammy Award nomination, a No.1 R&B charting rap album, the first rap act to have a music video rotation on MTV and to feature on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine; plus the first rap act to sign to a major endorsement deal with Adidas. Run DMC were also the second rap act to be inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

With over 20 years of pioneering hits, unparalleled solo success, plus collaborating with the music industry’s notable hip-hop and rock music stars from Fred Durst (Limp Bizkit), Kid Rock, Method Man, Nas, Stephan Jenkins (Third Eye Blind), and Sugar Ray; the legendary rap group of all time will return to London for the most anticipated concert of the summer.

British-born American legendary rapper Slick Rick has been added to the Run DMC concert lineup, making it one of London’s biggest and iconic hip-hop concerts of the year.

Run DMC will also perform with their longtime DJs, DJ Charlie Chan and DJ Ruckus.
