(CBS News) Run-DMC will reunite for the first time in more than decade at the upcoming Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, Texas.

Festival organizers announced that the hip hop group will take the stage at the event, scheduled to take place Nov. 2-4.

An official statement said Run-DMC will play "for the first time since disbanding in 2002. Surviving members Joseph "Run" Simmons and Darryl "D.M.C." McDaniels will headline the main stage."

Run-DMC will be without principal member Jason "Jam-Master Jay" Mizell, who was shot and killed at his New York recording studio in October 2002.

Festival organizers will donate some of the ticket proceeds to the JMJ Foundation for Music, which supports public school music education programs.

The group, known for the hits ''Walk This Way,'' ''It's Like That'' and ''My Adidas," formed in the 1980s, releasing its self-titled debut in 1984. Run-DMC's last album, "Crown Royal," came out in 2001, a year before Jam Master Jay's death at age 37.
