Wu-Tang Clan Added To Rock The Bells Festival New Jersey

Wu-Tang Clan

The 2012 Rock The Bells Festival Series is slated to come to a close this weekend (September 1, 2) in New Jersey, but with just days to go, organizers Guerilla Union continue to unveil surprises. The latest addition: the Wu-Tang Clan.

The legendary NYC group has been added as special guests at the final stop at the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey.

“We’ve brought in artists exclusively to both the San Bernardino and Mountain View shows, so we wanted to do something exceptional for New Jersey. What better way to end the festival with a bang than having one of music’s greatest contributors, Wu-Tang Clan, as special guests?” asks Chang Weisberg, founder of Guerilla Union.

Weisberg continues stating that the hip-hop pioneers have signed on, not only to make the final stop a unique one, but to rally in support of Rock the Bells Festival.

“While the shows the past two weekends on the west coast were incredible (both sold out), Rock the Bells in New Jersey is really struggling. Last year, we had to cancel our show in Boston; this year, we had to leave our annual home at Governor’s Island in NYC; and for whatever reason, this show in New Jersey is not selling. But we are not going to stop fighting to make music history, and Wu-Tang Clan, as well as every other artist on the bill, are working hand-in-hand with us in order to support one of the last true live-music platforms in Hip Hop on the east coast. I know that this Labor Day weekend will go down in the books as one of the best shows we’ve ever produced, and I know that we are going to make music history yet again. But we hope that enough fans will rally to support the cause as well so we can continue to bring Rock the Bells to the east coast.”

Other artists exclusively performing in New Jersey are super-group Slaughterhouse, Rock the Bells alumni Big Sean, and new-comers French Montana + Red Café, Action Bronson, and Tinie Tempah.

Tickets are still available for the two-day festival. Visit RockTheBells.net for further info.
