Ghostface Killah has called triple j to assure Australian fans that a Wu Tang tour is coming.

Rumours about a tour from the group first gained momentum after a series of cryptic Wu-Tang posters showed up in Melbourne.

A facebook page set up by the Australian tour promoters hoping to bring the acclaimed rap crew over here was then created to try and explain some of the clues to fans.

But after a few weeks of waiting for info some fans of the facebook group, now almost 10,000 strong, started to become sceptical about whether the shows would continue the track record of plenty of hip hop shows in the past; and never actually get off the ground.

So in an effort to put Wu-Tang fans at ease, Ghostface Killah called into triple to chat about the tour.

"We coming over there to mash out and we're going to be over there definitely", the emcee said.

"I don't know who signed off but you got GZA, Method Man, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killah and I think Raekwon might go. Hopefully everyone will come, by the grace of god.

We got love for Australia and Australia has love for us. We wish we could come over there more often but we just need the right promoters to call us and stuff like that."

American promoters later told triple j that the tour will be a 4-date run of shows over the first weekend of August.

Rest assured triple j will have the full tour details for you as soon as they're confirmed.
