Run-DMC is widely acknowledged as one of the most influential acts in the history of hip hop culture and one of the most famous hip-hop acts of the 1980s - or even all time! From Hollis, Queens, New York, the group was founded in 1981 by Joseph Simmons, Darryl McDaniels, and Jason Mizell.
Their debut self-titled album dropped in 1984,and was followed by 'King of Rock' a year later, 'Raising Hell' in 1986, 'Tougher Than Leather' in '88, 'Back from Hell' in 1990, 'Down with the King' in 1993, and after a significant stop gap, 'Crown Royal' in 2001. By 2002, the release of two greatest-hits albums prompted a tour with Aerosmith that saw them travel the U.S. Sadly, only weeks after the end of the tour, Jam Master Jay was senselessly murdered in a studio session in Queens.
The current arrangement still perform live to this day, having performed at Isle of Wight Festival in 2017 and many other headline performances around the world.
Now, in 2018, Run DMC will return to the UK for the first time in three years this summer to Londons Eventim Apollo. Catch them live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.
