Nas and Damian Marley Plot 2011 International Tour
Nas and Damian Marley successfully bridged the gap between rap and reggae with their joint release 'Distant Relatives' this year, and they're extending their promo run through the New Year. The music brethren have announced international tour dates for their collaboration album, an addendum to their 2010 tour that took them across the U.S. and beyond.
The 2011 leg of their Distant Relatives tour kicks off at Hawaii's Kona Bowl on Feb. 9, after which the group will travel across the Pacific to Australia, New Zealand and Japan. After touring through February, Nas will venture on a solo jaunt through Finland and Norway for a week of performances during the end of March, meeting back up with Damian for a European tour through April.
The pair, who consistently shared the stage during the Rock the Bells festival in 2009, released their joint debut in May 2010. The LP sold 57,000 copies in its first week and debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200, earning top 50 bows on the European, Canadian and Germany album charts.
