Are The Wu Comin' Thru?

The Wu: Consummate Pros Photo by london_jimenez

NYC's notoriously disorganized Wu-Tang Clan are slated for an
April 21st appearance at Metropolis. The promoters, Gillett Entertainment Group and Greenland, are not fly-by-night operations by any means. The show has been well promoted and I know first-hand that tickets have been selling.

The question on a lot of people's minds, though, is whether or not the Clan will honour the Montreal date. So far both promoters websites still have the show listed.

Over the years, the Wu have missed a show or two, to be sure. Solo acts from the group have played Montreal dates, and to my knowledge the events have gone off, though please fill me in if you know otherwise.

A Facebook notice I read today called into question whether or not the show will go on. Frankly I haven't been paying attention to what's been happening in other cities, but this made me do some searching.

This message board has a number of naysayers, though someone claiming to be a promoter stated on the official Facebook event group page that the show is going down. This was shortly after 12 AM this morning.

This page, supposedly the RZA's official booking agent's MySpace blog, says that the tour is pushed back and only four scheduled dates in the US are going ahead as planned.

I have no answers. I have a ticket, but no answers.

What do you think? Are we gonna get the muthafuckin' ruckus up here in April or not?

I'll keep you posted. Or you can keep me posted. Whatever happens first.

It's too bad if it gets nixed because I really wanted to show Pretty Tony I bought Big Doe Rehab and "have a pow-wow" with him. I still love you, Ghost.

Already have an update.

The scheduled April 22 Wu Tang show at Higher Ground in Burlington, VT, is canceled "due to conflicts with Method Man's schedule".

I think Montreal may be in for a $60 U-God show.

Yo Archie, this is Jefferson.
Here is an interesting little
Wu-Tool to fuck wit.

I come up as "Master Contender"...

Archie Bunker said...

"Archie Bunker" pulls "Thunderous Observer". Appropriate for me, and the real Archie, I'd say.

"Darcy MacDonald" is "Midnight Magician".

I think I prefer my pseudonym's Wu name.

What's 5% about it, though?

Thanks Daniel.

Daniel said...
