Wu-Tang Clan takes over practically any stage they appear on, and now they are ready to take on Las Vegas too in 2024 with a residency at the Theater at Virgin Hotels.
“Wu-Tang Clan: The Saga Continues… The Las Vegas Residency” will kick off during Super Bowl weekend on February 9th and 10th, followed by another pair of concerts on March 22nd and 23rd. More dates will be announced in the coming months.
Residencies in Las Vegas have long been a part of the culture there, but Wu-Tang Clan will be the first hip-hop group to hold its own. Notable as this year is also the 50th anniversary of hip-hop. This year alone has seen residencies from pop artists Adele and Katy Perry, U2 at the Sphere, and R&B star Usher (who will also be performing at this year’s Super Bowl Halftime).
“Hip-hop is rich in its content and what it offers creatively to an audience,” Wu-Tang mastermind RZA said in an interview with The New York Times, adding that he wants to “show that hip-hop can go where any other art form has gone before.”
He continued, “I’m in that spirit of loving where there’s a hub of art and then loving that I — in my talent and the Wu-Tang brothers — can add to that hub and of course eventually invite more hip-hop artists to come and play in this sandbox with us.”
Wu-Tang Clan recently concluded a tour with the rapper Nas. Tickets go on sale Friday, December 15th. Get Wu-Tang Clan tickets here.
