LL Cool J is hitting the road this summer for the “Kings of the Mike” tour with Ice Cube, Public Enemy and De La Soul. The 2013 LL Cool J tour will kick off in May and runs through July with stops at both indoor and outdoor venues. LL Cool J hasn’t toured since joining Janet Jackson on a few stops back in 2008 and has spent much of the last few years acting.
Ice Cube has also been in front of the camera a lot lately but he has continued to put out new music also and he’s currently working on a follow up album to 2010’s, I Am the West.
Flavor Flav will be joining up with Chuck D, Professor Griff and DJ Lord to bring Public Enemy back to the concert scene. Though they have continued to put out new music including the recent The Evil Empire of Everything, they have not toured very often in recent years.
LL Cool J tickets are on sale this week and both reserved seats near the stage and general admission seating will be available for most of the venues.
