Wu-Tang’s RZA, who did a bit of touring in August, will hit the road again in October. That tour hasn’t been announced in full, but we do know that he’ll visit the Double Door for the second time this year on October 13. A tweet from the venue states that tickets will go on sale this Saturday (9/22) at noon CST. There currently isn’t an active ticket link, but you can check Ticketfly for updates.
As mentioned, RZA’s new martial arts film, The Man with the Iron Fists, hits theaters on November 2. The soundtrack features contributions from The Black Keys, Kanye West, Raekwon, RZA himself, Wu-Tang Clan, Flatbush Zombies, Freddie Gibbs, Ghostface Killah, and many more. The soundtrack will be released on October 23 via Soul Temple/STAX/Red Distribution, and you can stream two of its tracks at the bottom of this post.
In related news, fellow-Wu-Tang member GZA is bringing his tour with Killer Mike, Sweet Valley, and Bear Hands through Chicago on Wednesday (9/19) for a show at Metro. He’ll be performing Liquid Swords in its entirety, with a backing band made up of his tourmates. Tickets for that show are still available.
