Jurassic 5 announce UK tour with original line-up (2013)
Story by Jack Foley
JURASSIC 5 have announced three exclusive headline UK dates with the full original line-up this June, including a show at London’s O2 Academy Brixton.
The American alternative hip hop group featuring by rappers Chali 2na, Akil, Zaakir, Mark 7even and disc jockeys DJ Nu-Mark and Cut Chemist first formed in 1993 and debuted nationally in 1995 with their first single, Unified Rebelution.
Their eponymous full length debut album entitled Jurassic 5 was released in 1998 and three albums followed, including Quality Control, Power in Numbers and Feedback – the latter two peaking at number 15 on the Billboard 200 chart. The group disbanded in 2007 following their final EP.
These new dates see the full line up reunited again and will follow their appearance at this year’s Coachella Festival and Parklife Weekender.
The dates are (all June 2013):
10 – Glasgow O2 Academy
11 – Birmingham O2 Academy
13 – London O2 Academy Brixton
Tickets are £25 (£32.50 London) and go on sale on Friday, March 22 at 9am.
