I remember at some point last year, Public Enemy said that they were going to stop touring so much. Since then, they co-headlined the awesome Rock The Bells tour, and then did a tour of their own. Now, they've announced that in May, they're doing three dates in the U.K. as part of the "Don't Look Back" concert series, where artists recreate one of their classic albums.

It's not suprise that P.E. will be doing It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back (although I'd argue Fear Of A Black Planet and Apocolypse 91: The Enemy Strikes Black are also classics, Nation is clearly their high point).

The album just smokes almost any other album in any other genre, not just hip-hop. Hopefully, they'll bring the show to NYC. I wonder if Terminator X, who retired a few years ago to be an ostrich farmer, will be involved. P.E. will no doubt be getting into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in a few years, so hopefully Terminator is getting ready to speak with his hands again.
