Earlier this summer, Rock The Bells festival announced that it would continue its wildly popular feature of having artists perform their classic albums in their entirety during specialized sets at the festival. Now, Guerilla Union and House Of Blues have teamed up to take a handful of those sets on the road for those of you who can’t make it out to the Rock The Bells dates in California, New York or Boston. Middle Americans rejoice; the Rock The Bells Presents Club And Theater Series is here.


So far, two tours of full-album sets have been planned. The first features Raekwon and Ghostface Killah playing Only Built 4 Cuban Linx and Mobb Deep playing The Infamous, and runs from mid-August through mid-September. Then, not long after the first tour kicks off, a recently reunited Black Star will play its alt-hip-hop classic, Mos Def And Talib Kweli Are Black Star, all across the U.S., once it’s got the Rock The Bells dates for California in its pocket. Word has it that plans for future tours—which may or may not be the full-album variety—are in the works for the partnership. Stay tuned for more announcements, and check out the dates for the two currently planned tours below.
