Run DMC, LL Cool J & more playing ‘Xmas In Brooklyn’ at Barclays Center
Run DMC at Super Bowl Week 2014 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin).
Darryl McDaniels and Joseph Simmons reunited their legendary hip hop group Run DMC in 2012 for Made In America and Fun Fun Fun Fest, their first shows since the tragic passing of Jam Master Jay. They’ve since continued playing shows, but their only hometown appearance so far has been the not-exactly-public Super Bowl Week show this past January. That will finally change in December, when the Queens crew play December 19 at Barclays Center for WBLS & Hot 97’s ‘Xmas In Brooklyn’ (too bad it couldn’t be ‘Xmas in Hollis’). They’ll be joined by another Hollis/Def Jam veteran, LL Cool J, his frequent collaborator DJ Z-Trip, and Lecrae (“and more”). Tickets go on sale Monday (11/10) at noon with Hot 97 & WLBS presales starting Thursday (11/6) at 10 AM and AmEx/Live Nation presales starting Friday (11/7) at 10 AM.
