During an interview with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Will Smith talks touring with DJ Jazzy Jeff.
“We never had a chance to really go out and tour,” Will Smith says to Fallon, recalling the early days of his work as one-half of DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince before his The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air sitcom became a hit.
Smith says that he and Jazzy Jeff have been talking about going on tour. “We decided a couple months ago, you know what, we have to go out one good time because we never really had a chance to go out and blaze it up,” Smith says.
In October, Smith said a tour with Jazzy Jeff was possible.
“I’m pretty certain I’m going on tour,” Smith said at the time. “Jeff and I actually never have done a full tour. I was always on the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. I was always either making a movie, so we’ve never actually done a full tour. So I’m looking this summer to be the first time that we go out on a full world tour.”
During his conversation with Fallon, he seemingly joked when he announced the tour’s opening act.
“We’re bringing The Roots,” Smith says of Fallon’s house band. “Philly supersedes all.”
