Run The Jewels Announces “RTJX – Celebrating 10 Years of Run The Jewels” Tour and Nike Collab

Run The Jewels, the boundary-pushing duo of Killer Mike and EL-P, have announced their upcoming RTJX – Celebrating 10 Years of Run The Jewels tour. The live events will be held in New York City, Atlanta, Chicago, and Los Angeles this Fall, as the duo celebrates the 10th anniversary of their eponymous debut album release.

The group is set to perform four shows in each city, with every night featuring a different set that spans their full discography. The shows promise to be full of surprises and special guests along the way, and it marks the first and only run of club shows in North America since RTJ released their album RTJ4 in 2020, following their 2022 tour with Rage Against the Machine.

Originally released on June 26, 2013, Run The Jewels was initially conceptualized as a free thank-you gift for fans who had supported Killer Mike’s R.A.P. Music and El-P’s Cancer4Cure albums. The project enjoyed critical success and propelled them on the journey they’ve been on over the past decade, which includes Grammy nominations, veritable gold-certified singles, headlining festivals, touring globally and branching out into films, TV, beer, cannabis and more.

Furthermore, footwear giant Nike and RTJ are teaming up in a sportswear collection aimed at expanding sports for a new generation. The Nike SB Dunk Low and High “Run The Jewels” pays tribute to the skate culture, adopting the color schemes from the album arts of 2017’s Run The Jewels 3 and 2020’s RTJ4. The sneakers will be launched by the group on April 20 on Nike’s SNKRS, local skate shops, and select retailers.

The duo released a joint statement:

“It’s mind-blowing to us that it’s been 10 years since we joined forces as RTJ. The best way we can think to celebrate is to get the whole family together and do what we love for the people who love us back. It’s going to be amazing, just like this entire ride has been, and we are grateful to get a chance to celebrate with our jewel runners this year and finally get back into clubs to destroy some stages for you. We’re doing 4 cities, 4 nights each, and 4 full albums worth of jams, many we have only performed a small handful of times during our whole existence. So on night one it’s RTJ1 in full plus many more songs from the other records, night two it’s RTJ2… etc. etc. We can’t wait to get out there and see you.“
