Bone Thugs N Harmony, who MTV calls “the most melodic hip hop group of all time,” announces their triumphant return to the spotlight with all five original members appearing in a major pay-per-view benefit show, the launch of their own fully dedicated Internet TV channel on FilmOn Networks, the creation of a new production company, and a slate of community awareness and development projects in their hometown of Cleveland.
In conjunction with the launch of their Internet TV channel, Bone Thugs N Harmony will perform a live pay-per-view show from the Cleveland Performance Arts Center on Oct. 16. The show, presented by Ladderhouse International, will be broadcast on ETV.com, the new interactive platform from FilmOn Networks, with a portion of proceeds going to the Cleveland non-profit Roots of American Music and Bone Thugs Cares Foundation. Bone Thugs N Harmony’s original members will collaborate for the first time with a live orchestra to make this a one of a kind event for both concert attendees and the pay-per-view online audience.

The channel will air live concert footage, interviews, celebrity guest appearances, and behind the scenes footage from upcoming events.
“I’m excited to work with Ladderhouse in bringing Bone Thugs N Harmony to our new ETV.com platform,” says David. “The platform was designed to put power and monetization abilities in the hands of artists, athletes and celebrities who can create one of a kind events and raise money for their charities with ease.”
