Bushwick Bill of the legendary Geto Boys crew recently revealed his battle with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer, encouraging his fans to stay positive and appreciate life. Now, Bill has once again reunited with Scarface and Willie D to hit the road as a trio once again. The trio has officially announced The Beginning Of A Long Goodbye tour, dubbed as a “final farewell” to the trailblazing trio. With Bill currently undergoing chemotherapy, the Geto Boys are keeping the run short and bittersweet, though we can only imagine the fan love and support will be befitting of their legacy.

In an official press release, Scarface opened up about the upcoming tour in an emotional message. “I look forward to joining the guys again for this final farewell to The Geto Boys. We had a lot of memories, good and bad, and a lot of great music,” he reflects. “Man it’s gonna be a tear jerker walking away from this- a time in my life that threw learning curves and growing pains at the same time. Thanks to all the Geto Boys and Girls around the world that helped to protect this brand. Bill and Will, I love you guys. God bless you both in your future travels whatever they may be. So long fellas…”
Beginning at the end of May, the Geto Boys will be performing four concerts, with the dates and locations available below. A portion of the proceeds will be going to the support of pancreatic cancer awareness. Respect to the Geto Boys for making this happen, and our thoughts and prayers go out to Bushwick, Scarface, and Willie D.
