Just announced: Run The Jewels at The Limelight, March 29

Run The Jewels have just announced a pair of Irish dates

LAST month hip-hop super-duo Run The Jewels gave fans a surprise Christmas gift by making their new album Run The Jewels 3 available as a free download from Runthejewels.com.

Now, El-P and Killer Mike have kicked off 2017 in style with the announcement of a European tour for the record, including dates at Dublin's Olympia and The Limelight in Belfast.

"F*** it, we couldn't help ourselves," said the band of their decision to release their new album online well in advance of its original due date.

"It just feels right. After a crazy f***ing year and with a full tour about to set off we asked ourselves what we were waiting for – and we just couldn't come up with a great answer.

"We busted our asses on this one and we think we made something special this time round. Grab it for free, buy it on any of the digital platforms you like or stream it.

"Enjoy and we will see you on the road!"

:: Belfast tickets priced £31 go on sale at 9am via Ticketmaster outlets.
