— — — Legendary hip hop group Run-DMC is reuniting. The surviving members, Joseph “Run” Simmons and Darryl “DMC” McDaniels will be taking the stage at the 7th Annual Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, TX from November 2nd through the 4th. DMC will also perform a solo set with his live band.
Run-DMC has been defunct since the 2002 murder of DJ Jam Master Jay.
“We couldn’t be more excited. Run-DMC is one of our favorite bands, and one of the most influential groups of all-time – that we never thought that we would get to see play live, much less play in Austin at our festival,” said festival producer James Moody. “This is as big as it gets and we are so proud to be working with them.”
