It's now been 17 years since Black Star, the duo of Mos Def, now known as Yasiin Bey, and Talib Kweli, released their one and only album, Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star. Though Bey and Kweli have each been busy with their solo careers, it has just been announced that Black Star will reunite for a tour in Australia and New Zealand. 

This doesn't do too much for us in the Western Hemisphere, so hopefully the short-lived reunion tour is a prelude for more to come. The world could certainly use another Black Star album. 

Check out dates below. 

10/22/15: Brisbane, Australia
10/24/15: Sydney, Australia
10/25/15: Melbourne, Australia
10/26/15: Auckland, New Zealand
