US legendary hip-hop group, Run DMC is set to return to the UK stage for the first time in three years for a rare one night only exclusive show on Thursday 5th July 2018 at the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith, London.
Bursting onto the scene in the early ‘80’s and widely acknowledged as one of the first artists to pioneer the new school hip-hop sound; MC’s Joseph ‘Run’ Simmons, Darryl ‘D.M.C’ McDaniels and the late DJ Jason ‘Jam Master Jay’ Mizell, are greatly recognised as the most influential and famous acts in the history of hip-hop culture.
