It has been over 25 years since LL Cool J headlined a tour. This makes sense as James Todd Smith (we agree LL Cool J is better) has been busy with his acting, hosting, and various other gigs over the years. Even so, the urge to tour never really leaves those who grow up in the music industry, and it was always likely that LL would get back on the road someday.
That day would be soon, with his 2023 ‘F.O.R.C.E. Live’ tour – or Frequencies Of Real Creative Energy, Live to give it its full name – kicking off on June 25 at the TD Garden in Boston. There are 24 stops on this tour, and it is worth looking ahead to see exactly who LL will be bringing with him to each stop. Hip-hip legends like DJ Jazzy Jeff, Jadakiss, The Roots, and even the icon that is Ice-T will all be with LL at certain points of the journey. It is a journey that wraps around North America, lasting all the way through a September 3 gig at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles.
Check out a full list of dates and venues at the end of this post, along with the major acts at each particular tour stop.

In addition, tho those named above, the guest list on this tour is wild. On any given night, you could expect to see artists like:
- Queen Latifah
- Method Man & Redman
- Bone Thugs-N-Harmony
- Slick Rick
That is just a sample of what LL Cool J is promising with this tour. His 90s flows are epic enough for a headline tour with little-known support. That he has a guest list that, between them, have hundreds of awards in their genre makes this an absolute must-see for fans of 90s hip-hop.
