On Tuesday (March 28), the rap duo announced they’d be celebrating their 10th anniversary with four different concerts in New York, Chicago, Atlanta, and Los Angeles. According to a press release, the Run The Jewels men will be “performing a different set each night spanning the band’s full discography, bolstered by a plethora of special guests and surprises along the way.”
The tour will kick off with four shows at NYC’s Terminal 5 and from there, the duo will do four shows each in Chicago, Illinois, Atlanta, Georgia and Los Angeles, California.
“It’s mind blowing to us that it’s been 10 years since we joined forces as RTJ,” Killer Mike and El-P said in a statement. “The best way we can think to celebrate is to get the whole family together and do what we love for the people who love us back. It’s going to be amazing, just like this entire ride has been, and we are grateful to get a chance to celebrate with our Jewel Runners this year and finally get back into clubs to destroy some stages for you.
“We’re doing four cities, four nights each, and four full albums worth of jams, many we have only performed a small handful of times during our whole existence. So on night one it’s RTJ1 in full, plus many more songs from the other records; night two it’s RTJ2… etc. etc. We can’t wait to get out there and see you.”

The anniversary tour will be the first and only run of club shows in North America since RTJ dropped their album RTJ4 in 2020 and first major performance since wrapping up their tour with Rage Against The Machine in 2022.
Tickets go on sale Friday (March 31) at 10 a.m. local time, with a special fan pre-sale starting Wednesday (March 29). Fans can sign-up for early access to tickets here. In addition to single-night tickets, there will be four-night packages available.
After collaborating on Killer Mike’s Rap Music in 2012, Killer Mike and El-P joined forces in 2013 to announce they would release a joint album under the name Run the Jewels. The project found instant success that had the group reach far beyond its existing fan bases.
Run The Jewels would end up going on a ten-year journey that saw Mike and El earn Grammy nominations, gold-certified singles, mainstage appearances at major music festivals, global touring, forays into art, beer, cannabis, film, tv and more.
