Q-Tip and The Cool Kids to tour


2K Sports, announced today details for the 4th annual Bounce Tour, the latest addition to 2K Sports’ series of live events celebrating the convergence of music, sports and video game culture. The tour lineup consists of Q-Tip (from A Tribe Called Quest), who will be supported by his live band, DJ Scratch (from EPMD) and the popular duo The Cool Kids, who will also be performing new material and other banging hits. The Bounce Tour is scheduled to appear in 20 different cities across the country from Nov.5 – Dec.3.

“Q-Tip killed it last year on the 2K8 Bounce Tour and we’re honored to have him back on tour with us. He’s a legend in the game, and one of the most influential artists in hip-hop culture,” said Tim Rosa, director of brand and lifestyle marketing at 2K Sports. “We’re also excited to have The Cool Kids performing new material on the tour. Their music is unique and positive, their vibe is independent and authentic, and they roll with their own signature style, all of which reflect the same attributes we strive for with our games.”

After the Bounce Tour in 2006,Q-Tip returns with another hip-hop pioneer, EPMD’s DJ Scratch, to perform new tracks from his upcoming solo album, The Renaissance, along with other classics. The Cool Kids, who have already partnered with 2K Sports on a variety of efforts including recording an exclusive track titled “2K Pennies” and having playable in-game characters, will perform as the opening act on the tour. Fans can also now download the 2K Pennies track for free, at the 2K Sports website, http://www.2ksports.com/coolkids.
