War Announce The World Is A Ghetto 50th Anniversary Tour

War have announced The World Is a Ghetto 50th Anniversary Tour in celebration of the No. 1 Billboard top-selling album of 1973.

From coast to coast this spring and summer, the legendary SoCal street band will perform songs from the record. In addition to classic cuts such as “The Cisco Kid” and “The World Is a Ghetto,” War will also fill their sets with hits like “Why Can’t We Be Friends,” “Low Rider” and more.

Upcoming dates include several stops across the Los Angeles area and the band’s native California. More festivals and other show dates will be added soon.

The World Is a Ghetto 50th Anniversary Tour comes on the heels of The World Is a Ghetto: 50th Anniversary Collector’s Edition. Released via Avenue/Rhino Records, the 5-LP compendium was named one of the Best Box Sets of 2023. Following its limited edition vinyl run, both a CD and digital release of the Collector’s Edition will be arriving this year.

War founding member Lonnie Jordan recently reflected on both The World Is a Ghetto and the band’s continued mission to spread its message of harmony and inclusion, through songs that have sound tracked everything from the anti-Vietnam movement to the first Congressional Black Caucus, the first U.S.-Soviet space mission, Barack Obama’s summer playlists and more.
