Will Smith reuniting with DJ Jazzy Jeff for a summertime tour

Will Smith reuniting with DJ Jazzy Jeff for a summertime tour

The Jackson Five and Pete Waterman's Hit Factory will also perform at the event.

Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff are officially reuniting, and it's all going down very soon.

Two dates have been confirmed, including a slot in Blackpool at Livewire Festival on August 27th. It's the best location in the United Kingdom for entertainment, ' a representative for the festival explained - and with that legendary pier, it's hard to disagree.

DJ Jazzy Jeff and Will Smith, a.k.a the Fresh Prince of Bel Air, met in the 1980s and won a Grammy for their single Parents Just Don't Understand. Before that, in 2013, the duo appeared on the BBC's Graham Norton Show where they performed a medley of their most famous tunes with Alfonso Ribeiro (cousin Carlton from the Fresh Prince) rapping and dancing.




They later released two more popular hits, "Summertime", and "Boom!"

Alfonso Ribeiro, who played Carlton Banks, posted a picture on Instagram with the caption: "Always fantastic to spend an afternoon with my Fresh Prince family".

James Avery, who played Will Smith's uncle in the Fresh Prince, died in 2014.

In rather unexpected (but admittedly absolutely brilliant) news, Will Smith's set to visit Blackpool this summer as he joins his old pal DJ Jazzy Jeff at LIVEWIRE Festival. Both are slated for the same weekend (August 25-27), and both are headlining gigs.
