Several titans of hip-hop will perform at Casino del Sol’s AVA May 23 as the “Kings of the Mic" tour kicks off in Tucson.

LL Cool J, Ice Cube, Public Enemy and De La Soul are all slated to appear, which should equate to an easy sell-out scenario for the 5,000 seat venue.

That’s especially when you consider that the tour is skipping Phoenix. The next stop after Tucson is Las Vegas.

Tickets for the show go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.

It’s one in a string of recent high-profile concert announcements from the AVA.

Classic crooner Tony Bennett will pluck gems from the Great American Songbook when he performs the venue on May 19.

The Go Go’s and B-52s were also recently added to the schedule. They will play on July 11.
