Slaughterhouse Announces European Tour


John Kennedy / January 6, 2010

American Hip-Hop group Slaughterhouse has announced their first ever European tour.

The group, which features Joe Budden, Royce Da 5’9, Joell Ortiz and Crooked I, will hit the road on January 20, for series of dates that start in Holland.

The 14-date tour will make stops in Poland, the Czech Republic, Finland, Denmark, Hungary, Austria and other major markets in Europe.

“Slaughterhouse has proven that you can focus on lyricism and content and still be commercially viable,” Royce told “I’m happy with 2009, but we hope to have an even better 2010. And we’re about to set it off with our fans in Europe.”

The group is hitting the road in Europe to promote their debut self-titled release which landed in stores on August 11.

Although he was curt with his words, Joe Budden was equally confident that fans across Europe will be impressed with Slaughterhouse’s inaugural tour of the continent.

“The stage will be brought down like it always is,” Joe Budden said. “This is what we live for, see you there.”
