After a thirty year hiatus, LL COOL J is headlining his first arena tour. Dubbed The F.O.R.C.E Live (Frequencies of Real Creative Energy), the multi-state, Live Nation-backed, celebration promises a rotating cast of some of Hip-Hop's most historic figures/groups.
Backed by The Roots, DJ Z-Trip, and DJ Jazzy Jeff, expected participants include Salt-N-Pepa, Queen Latifah, Rakim, Common, Method Man & Redman, Big Boi, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Ice T, Juvenile, Doug E. Fresh, Slick Rick, De La Soul, Goodie Mob, Jadakiss, Rick Ross, and more. Of course, this leads us to believe that the tour will have the presentation and energy of the Hip-Hop tribute at the Grammys.
The F.O.R.C.E. hits the road on June 25 in Boston, MA, at TD Garden before stopping in Brooklyn, NY, at Barclays Center on June 27, rolling through arenas across the continent, and closing out on September 3 in Los Angeles, CA, at Kia Forum.
Ticket presales begin on April 25 at 10 am ET through April 27 at 10 pm local time. On Thursday, April 27, 10 am-10 pm local time, fans may purchase tickets through either the Live Nation presale, Ticketmaster presale, or a local venue and radio presales. Tickets are available here.
