Following their headlining gig at this summer's Rock the Bells festival, the Wu-Tang Clan is ready to close out the year with a bang. The group has announced a nine-date U.S. tour for the month of December, kicking off the month with a gig in San Diego before wrapping up the nationwide jaunt with a New Year's Eve performance in Millvale, Pennsylvania.

The trek sees the group making their way from West to East Coast, making pit stops at Los Angeles' Club Nokia (12/5), Dallas' Granada Theater (12/10) and Houston's Numbers (12/12). After conquering the south, the collective heads to Boston's Wilbur Theater (12/21) before heading to New Haven's Toad's Place (12/26), Providence's Lupo's Heartbreak Hotel (12/28) and Philadelphia's Trocadero (12/30).

Wu-Tang had a busy summer on the touring circuit, first swarming The Roots Picnic in Philadelphia for a headlining performance this past June. The group later performed their classic album 'Enter the 36 Chambers' in its entirety at this year's Rock the Bells Festival, where they joined Lauryn Hill, Slick Rick and Rakim in headlining slots.
