Hip-hop sensation MC Hammer brings his legendary Hammer House Party to D.C.’s new, state-of-the-art venue Entertainment and Sports Arena in Congress Heights (1100 Oak Drive SE) on Friday, August 23, presented by SiriusXM Fly with special guests Sir Mix-A-Lot, Kid ‘N Play, Tone Loc, DJ Kool, and Young MC.
Embarking on his first major tour since 1991, MC Hammer is bringing together some of the most recognizable Hip-Hop and R&B acts from the ’80s and ’90s to one stage for one night only. Even D.C. local DJ Kool created a video announcing the concert backstage at the arena.

Hammer’s House Party was created by Universal Attractions Agency in partnership with MC Hammer. With Hammer being largely off the touring scene and deeply involved in tech, philanthropy, and prison reform (The Last Mile) over the last decade, he decided it was time to give his fans what they wanted — a proper tour. Hammer said, “When Jeff pitched the idea to me for Hammer’s House Party, I loved the concept and the potential lineups and we collectively hit the ground running… it’s Hammertime!”
