In 2007, Royal Tribe Music successfully hosted “Stand Up Now”. The tour was supported by the City of Pittsburgh, former Chief Executive Dan Onorato, and Mayor Luke Ravenstahl. The S.U.N. Tour promotes positive progressive urban arts and addresses a wide range of social concerns. In sum, the S.U.N. Tour brings a diverse range of residents together to build healthy community relationships, and promotes the urban environment as a great place to live for all residents.

A revolutionary arts tour that featured performance, demonstrations, and artwork created by urban artists to incite viewer discussion about creative solutions to violent crimes in the community. The events included hosting a celebrity gala, an art exhibit themed around art to heal, a film documentary about social issues in the region, a job expo that raised food donations for the local food bank, a voter registration, and an Urban Hip Hop Arts Symposium.

Mission: The S.U.N. Tour mission is to provide a wide and far reaching platform for young talent to be heard and be seen sharing thier art and using thier talent to change the society.
