Public Enemy to Play Classic LP in Full

US hip-hop legends Public Enemy will play the entirety of their It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back LP in the UK later this year.

The influential rap collective's 1988 release featured the hit singles "Don't Believe The Hype" and "Bring The Noise."

It will be played from start to finish at three UK shows in Manchester, London, and Glasgow.

The first gig, which is part of the Don't Look Back series, will take place at the Brixton Academy on May 23.

Support for the shows comes from Dr Octoagon, Kutmasta Kurt, Anti Pop Consortium, Edan and MC Dagha.

Tickets go on sale on February 8.

Wu-Tang Clan star Raekwon has also been confirmed as one of the acts performing at the Don't Look Back concerts. He will play his 1995 record Only Built 4 Cuban Linx.
