The Boston-area date of the Rock The Bells 2011 Festival Series originally scheduled for this Saturday, September 10 has been rescheduled for Saturday, September 24 at the Comcast Center. All tickets for the originally scheduled performance date will be honored at the new date and refunds are available at point of purchase for those unable to attend on the new dates.

“Due to scheduling conflicts beyond our control we must reschedule this Saturday’s Rock The Bells show to Saturday, September 24,” explained Rock the Bells promoter Chang Weisberg in a press release. “We have had three spectacular festival shows this summer in Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York and anticipate finishing the season with another great show.

As previously reported, Rock the Bells will be led by headliners Ms. Lauryn Hill, Nas, Cypress Hill and Erykah Badu. The festival will feature an array of seminal and up-and-coming hip-hop artists including a number of artists performing their classic albums, a tradition started last year. Hill will perform her landmark, multi-Grammy award winning album The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill, while Nas will deliver his breakthrough album Illmatic with special guests AZ, Pete Rock and DJ Premier. Full album sets can also be expected from: Cypress Hill performing their 1993 album Black Sunday, Erykah Badu performing her 1997 debut album Baduizm, Common performing 2005’s Be, Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star performing their 1998 self-titled release, Raekwon and Ghostface teaming up for 1995’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx and more.

In total, over 25 artists will perform across three stages: the main stage, the “Paid Dues” stage (featuring independent hip-hop acts) and the new RZA-curated “36 Chambers” stage (primarily featuring members of the Wu-Tang Clan). The festival will be hosted by RZA, MURS 3:16, Supernatural and Boy Jones.

Tickets for Rock The Bells, which range in price from $50.50 to $126, are available through Live Nation.
