Run-DMC’s Final Concert Is Part Of New Documentary ‘Run-DMC Is Over’

The show is slated to take place at Madison Square Garden this spring.

Run-DMC is announcing their final concert, which will be a part of a new documentary.

During an interview with Rock the Bells, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels revealed the pioneering hip-hop group will be putting an end to their live performances with their last ever show at Madison Square Garden in New York this spring.

“Run-DMC is over,” he said in the interview. “The only way Run-DMC gets back together is if The Beatles get back together. Can that happen?”

“The final show that we are ever going to do is going to be at Madison Square Garden in April,” DMC added. “It’s going to be the last episode of the documentary we’re doing. Run-DMC’s last show ever. ‘Cause it’s time for Run to go be Paul McCartney and me to be John Lennon. We done did what we could do.”

McDaniels also teased appearances from fellow hip-hop legends Ice-T and Wu-Tang Clan, who are supposed to be part of the incredible affair.

“The show is going to be like The Last Waltz by The Band,” he added. “We’re doing that movie idea. You’ll see Ice-T come and do a song with us. You’ll see Wu-Tang come do a song with us. Anybody can buy a ticket to the show.”

When it comes to the documentary, DMC says the project is similar to Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine’s 2017 HBO docuseries The Defiant Ones and is planning to be shopped among streaming services.

“We’re gonna do it with Netflix or to the highest bidder,” he said. “It’s going to be a live production. Run-DMC’s doing The Last Waltz at Madison Square Garden. Who wants to pay $100 million to own it?”
