Run DMC is back!!!! It’s been over a decade since they’ve performed, but the surviving members will reunite this fall at the Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, Texas.
Rev Run and Darryl “DMC” McDaniels retired the group after Jam Master Jay was killed back in 2002.To honor Jay’s life, FFF festival promoters are working with the band to donate some of the proceeds to his foundation, the JMJ Foundation for Music. You can read more about Jay’s foundation at www.jammasterjay.org/JMJfoundation.html
Festival producer James Moody said,
We couldn’t be more excited. Run DMC is one of our favorite bands, and one of the most influential groups of all-time – that we never thought that we would get to see play live, much less play in Austin at our festival. This is as big as it gets and we are so proud to be working with them.”
The event is set to take place November 2-4.
