Good news for hip hop fans around the country because the D12 tour is coming your way. With just about 40 stops along the D12 tour you’ve got a great chance to see these guys live. There haven’t been tons of good hip hop tours this summer so there should be a lot of fans looking for D12 tickets to see these guys in action.

“This tour will be a grand celebration for all who come to the show and party with us,’ says Potluck’s 1 Ton. “D12 has been putting it down on the underground way before they got a chance to take it to the next level so I think it will be a good match. You take their style and combine it with our Pothead hip-hop fans and it should be a great time.”
D12, AKA the Dirty Dozen, includes members Bizarre, Eminem, Kon Artis, Kuniva and Swift.
