It's the Christmas gift you didn't know you wanted (or needed).
After nearly a decade, Ashanti and Ja Rule have resurfaced. Together. They recently recorded a duet titled "Helpless" for the Broadway musical Hamilton, and apparently the project was so nostalgic that they're embarking on a mini tour in Australia with special guest Eve. Because apparently they have a large enough fanbase down under.
The trio will kick off their Urban Sounds Tour at the Hordern Pavilion in Sydney on Jan. 11, then head to Brisbane on the 13th, Adelaide on the 14th and finish up in Perth on the 15th.
Ashanti and Ja Rule will also perform together for the New Year’s Eve festival Promiseland in Melbourne (sans Eve). In February, the pair have plans to take the stage at the Soulquarius! music festival in Orange County.
Urban Sounds Tour dates:
Wednesday January 11 – Hordern Pavilion, Sydney NSW
Friday January 13 – Eatons Hill, Brisbane QLD
Saturday January 14 – Thebarton Theatre, Adelaide SA
Sunday January 15 – Metro City, Perth WA
