    Insane Clown Posse announce farewell tour, Violent J’s health issues

    The extensive touring portion of Insane Clown Posse’s ongoing Dark Carnival is coming to a close.

    At its annual Gathering of the Juggalos festival in Thornville, Ohio over the weekend, ICP’s Violent J announced the group will embark on a farewell tour next year and will scale back its live performance schedule thereafter, due to the frontman’s recently diagnosed heart problems. 

    “This doesn’t mean I’m going to die or anything like that,” Violent J, real name Joe Bruce, told the crowd at the ICP panel discussion on Aug. 21, stressing the Detroit rap duo still plans to perform regularly. 

    But he does intend on taking on a less strenuous touring schedule going forward. 

    “It’s very embarrassing and very not cool to have to say that you’re taking a step backwards,” he said, his partner-in-rhyme Shaggy 2 Dope at his side. “But it comes a time in everybody’s life when you have to take your first step backward, and I’m 49, I’m taking my step back sooner than a lot of people. But each and every single person alive, if they’re lucky, will one day have to take their step back, because nobody escapes the trials and tribulations of being a human. Nobody.”
