RDU, Radio Active, 95BFM & Back 2 Basics Present De La Soul 20TH anniversary tour.

2009 sees hip hop pioneers De La Soul mark the 20th anniversary of their career, and to celebrate the group are undertaking their most comprehensive NZ tour to date.

The group's vibe is to perform the classic tracks live, but more importantly, and more than ever, De la Soul are stamping the presence and truth that's defined their sound across two decades.
The trio from Long Island, formed De La Soul in the 80s, quickly etching themselves into the psyche of global hip hop culture with their seminal debut, 3 Feet High and Rising (1989) and the dance floor addiction ‘The Magic Number’.

Since the groups last tour to NZ in 2006 the the group have won a Grammy for their collaboration with the Gorillaz on the single "Feel Good Inc".

With Grammy production in mind, there will be an exclusive and invite only media workshop with De la Soul to be held at the mighty Red Bull studios in Auckland on May 15. Details TBC.
Punctuating their enduring career is an impressive list of collaborators feeling the De La Soul tip: Mos Def, Beastie Boys, Common, Chaka Khan, Busta Rhymes and Redman among others. And we know that De La Soul's peace and positivity can be heard in the music of many, many artists.
This is a chance to see one of the most influential hip hop groups in history perform as they re-create the classics from the ground up.

With support from Djs Marek and Sticky Fingaz
