Feb 20 2017, 7:08 pm

If you’ve been holding on to “What’s Golden” and waiting for Jurassic 5 to play a Vancouver show, you’re in luck.

The American alternative hip-hop group has announced they’ll be playing two shows at The Commodore this coming June.

The six-piece formed back in the ’90s from two groups, Rebels of Rhythm and Unity Committee, and includes rappers Charles Stewart (Chali 2na), and Dante Givens (Akil).

Alongside them are Courtenay Henderson (Soup (Jurassic 5)/Zaakir) and Marc Stuart (Marc 7), as well as DJ’s Mark Potsic (DJ Nu-Mark) and Lucas Macfadden (Cut Chemist).

The group called it quits in 2007, reunited in 2013, and released a new single in 2014.

Tickets for the Jurassic 5 shows go on sale this Friday, February 24, through Live Nation.
