Run The Jewels Announce 2017 North American Tour, Become Playable Gears Of War Characters

Run The Jewels are one of those live shows you absolutely need to see, preferably in a packed and sweaty club, so you should consider it very good news that they are going to spend the first two months of 2017 on a massive North American tour. The duo of Killer Mike and El-P are close to releasing their new RTJ3 album, and they shared the first single “Talk To Me” last week. And now they’ve announced a huge run of tour dates that’ll start less than two weeks into 2017, with the Gaslamp Killer, Spark Master Tape, and Cuz opening all dates. Meanwhile, in other Run The Jewels news, the duo are playable characters in the new Gears Of War 4 vide game, which will also feature their new song “Panther Like A Panther.” Below, you can see the first glimpse of the video-game version of Mike and El in action, and you can also see the full touring itinerary.
