Redman appears for final show of Wu-Tang Las Vegas residency

The iconic Staten Island collective, the Wu-Tang Clan have officially ended their residency at The Theater at Virgin Hotels in Las Vegas. However, the group went all out for their final performance, bringing the legendary New Jersey emcee Redman as a surprise special guest.

The crew’s Las Vegas performance series, named ‘Wu-Tang Clan: The Saga Continues … The Las Vegas Residency’ ran for seven weeks beginning on February 4th. The final performance took place on March 24th.

The setlist for the group’s final show included classics such as ‘Protect Ya Neck’ and ‘C.R.E.A.M.’ Individual crew members also performed some of their most well-known hits. Ghostface Killah delivered ‘Cherchez La Ghost’, and Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s son performed his some of his late father’s tracks.

Method Man also performed some solo tracks from his catalogue, such as ‘All I Need’ and ‘Da Rockwilder.’ However, just as the emcee (real name Clifford Smith) began performing the latter, fans heard ad-libs from his partner-in-crime Redman and quickly realised he was coming onto the stage.

The duo then performed ‘Y.O.U.’ and reminded the Las Vegas crowd that they were two of the first artists to loudly and boldly speak up for weed smokers. Following this, they delivered their iconic 1995 track ‘How High’, which later ended up on the soundtrack of their 2001 film of the same name.

The Wu-Tang Clan, which was initially comprised of nine members, reunited for this epic performance and seven of the living legends assembled for the closing show. Only GZA didn’t participate.

For their final song, the collective chose to perform their 1997 hit ‘Triumph.’ The track was released as the lead single for their sophomore project, Wu-Tang Forever. Every member features on the track, including Cappadonna.
