House of Pain Announce New Tour Dates, Slaine Off Tour
House of Pain will be celebrate their 20th anniversary when they reunite for a 24-date tour, beginning March 15 in San Francisco, Calif. Supported by Big B and Sozay, has added five new stops, and will now culminate in Minneapolis on April 17, after which House of Pain will head to Australia for a mini-tour. While members Everlast and Danny Boy -- who also front the group La Coka Nostra -- have reunited with DJ Lethal, contrary to previous reports, the trio will not be taking Nostra member Slaine on the road with them.
In a recent interview, Slaine cryptically explained his absence. "I have one of the illest [opportunities] I've ever had to do something [that's] a dream come true," he said, "and really good for my family and future." The Boston MC has made appearances in Ben Affleck-directed films 'The Town' and 'Gone Baby, Gone,' and recently filmed a spot on television show 'The Cape,' so we can only conclude that he has landed his next role.
