HOUSTON, TX – The Geto Boys want to give fans one last chance to see the trio together in wake of Bushwick Bill’s stage 4 pancreatic cancer diagnosis. Scarface, Willie D and Bill have announced The Beginning of a Long Goodbye Tour, which will mark their final shows as a group.
“I look forward to joining the guys again for this final farewell to The Geto Boys,” Scarface said in a press release. “We had a lot of memories, good and bad, and a lot of great music.”
He continued, “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.”
The Geto Boys officially have four concerts scheduled as of Thursday (May 9) but plan to unveil additional dates in the coming days. A portion of the ticket sales will be donated to support pancreatic cancer awareness.
