GZA adds more ‘Liquid Swords’ North American shows (2 NYC full-band dates)
Wu-Tang Clan's GZA is celebrating the 25th anniversary of his classic LP Liquid Swords this year; he'd previously played the album in full at a few US shows last year, but now he's bringing the album out on tour in 2020. The tour, which recently began in Seattle, hits cities like Toronto, NYC, Chicago, Philly, Minneapolis, Detroit, Edmonton, Baltimore, Oakland, Denver, and lots more, with support from old friend Killah Priest and past Wu-Tang tourmate Lazarus on select dates.
The NYC dates happen at Blue Note Jazz Club on February 12, with an early show at 8:30 PM, and a late show at 10:30 PM. Both are with a full band.
Elsewhere, GZA and Wu-Tang Clan are scheduled to headline Loud Records' 25th anniversary show at NYC's Radio City Music Hall on January 30 with guests Prodigy, Fat Joe, Pete Rock, and many others. Wu-Tang Clan are also playing Oakland's EMBA Fest 2020 next month, which is a co-headlining show with Nas.
