Today it was announced that RUN-DMC will play their first live show in the UK in 12 years in Vodafone 4G live-streamed show on 18th January 2015. This year marks both RUN-DMC and Vodaphone celebrating 30 years in their respective fields – did you know in 1985 the first mobile phone call was made in the UK? No, us neither! – and the gig will be live-streamed over Vodafoneâ€™s 4G network.
A gig headlined by hip hop legends RUN-DMC will begin a series of celebrations this month to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the UKâ€™s first mobile call, made on the Vodafone network on 1 January 1985. British rising R&B soul singer Raleigh Ritchie, who also stars in the popular TV series Game of Thrones, will be supporting RUN-DMC and will collaborate with the group on one of its iconic tracks.
Let’s take a breath from all the excitement of experiencing Walk This Way to Itâ€™s Like That and everything in between in the flesh to pick out some rad RUN-DMC merch online, because okay yeah, you could pick the iconic logo tee up in Primark but where’s the fun in that? Let’s dig in…
Tees? Check! Headphones? Sure. But it was the keyboard cover that made our morning. A decal like this is a sure fire way to jazz up any work station, ensuring fingers and toes are constantly tapping with the imitable beats of Queens, NY.
Grey scale reworks from Backstreet Merch, Pulp’s King Of Rock sweater and getting tricky with Loud Clothing are all worthy opponents but it’s safe to say the band’s official store owned it like a boss, blowing any online competitors out of the water, with the quirky range of classics and modern alternatives.
The show will be live-streamed over Vodafoneâ€™s 4G network, enabling anyone in the UK to watch it for free on the Vodafone UK YouTube page. A Vodafone app, called â€˜Power Toâ€™, will also allow the gig to be viewed live on smartphones.
