The Wu-Tang Clan and Nas will be embarking on the 2023 N.Y State of Mind Tour, which will hit cities across North America and will include stops in Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
Announced Monday (Feb. 27), the tour will begin on May 9 in Auckland, New Zealand and end on Oct. 22 with a finale show in Highland, Calif. The Wu shared the news of their upcoming trek with fans via a post on social media, along with an official poster for the tour. “The Saga Continues Worldwide! The #NewYorkStateofMindTour is back – coming to a stage near you,” the group stated in the caption.
The N.Y. State of Mind Tour will kick off at New Zealand’s Spark Arena before continuing in Australia, with shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne set to take place from May 12 through May 14. In June, the European leg of the tour will commence, which will include stops in Stockholm, Copenhagen, Denmark, Paris, and London. The tour will then resume in September with a run of North American dates, with performances in Nashville, Florida, Washington D.C., Brooklyn, Atlantic City, Toronto, Chicago, and more.
Tickets for the North American dates are available for early access to American Express cardholders beginning Tuesday (Feb. 28) at 10 a.m. through Thursday, March 2, 10 p.m. General on sale tickets will be available for purchase on Friday (March 3) at 9 a.m. local time via livenation.com.
In 2022, the Wu-Tang Clan and Nas co-headlined the first iteration of the N.Y. State of Mind Tour, which included 25 stops across North America. The tour continues a relationship that’s spanned nearly 30 years, with the Clan and Esco connecting on several occasions throughout the ’90s. In 1995, Nas appeared alongside Wu members Raekwon and Ghostface Killah on the cut “Verbal Intercourse” from Rae’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… album.
