It's the news you've been waiting for since the 90s - Will Smith is finally reuniting with DJ Jazzy Jeff for a summertime tour.

Smith (48) may be best known for his big screen outings these days, but it seems he's anxious to get back to his music roots, having spent the last year 'popping' in the studio' and making new music.

He had a flurry of hits in the 90s and noughties including Miami and Summertime but it's been ten years since he last recorded music.

However, rumours of a tour have now been confirmed with two dates announced - one in Croatia on August 26th and a second in the UK on August 27th.

Smith shared the news on Facebook on Monday with the caption,"First two shows are locked!! Y'all ready?1" implying more dates will be added.

Speaking to Zane Lowe last year, he said, “Jeff and I actually have never done a full tour,” he added. “So this summer will be the first time we go out on a full world tour.”
