This is some of the most exciting, out-of-the-blue news we've heard in a while!
For the first time since 2002, Joseph "Run" Simmons and Darryl "D.M.C." McDaniels, the two surviving members of Run-D.M.C. will be reuniting for a headlining performance at this year's Fun Fun Fun Fest, which will run from November 2nd to the 4th in Austin, Texas!
According to the festival producer James Moody:
"We couldn’t be more excited. Run-D.M.C. is one of our favorite bands, and one of the most influential groups of all time . . . We never thought that we would get to see [them] play live, much less play in Austin at our festival."
And for those who will be missing the late Jason "Jam Master Jay" Mizell, his memory will live on through his former bandmates at the festival, as a portion of the proceeds will be going to JMJ Foundation for Music, which helps underprivileged children and teens with access to the arts!
Welcome back, guys! We couldn't be more thrilled to have you performing again!
How about U??
