The legendary Staten Island collective, the Wu-Tang Clan, recently announced that they will perform at their Las Vegas residency over two weekends in Spring 2024. The ensemble will take over the Theater at Virgin Hotels over two weekends.
The New York crew announced the residency on social media, tweeting, “Are you ready? Wu-Tang Clan: The Sage Continues…The Las Vegas Residency. @vhlvtheater will be the home of the Wu-Tang experience starting Super Bowl weekend. Pre-sale begins TODAY at 12pm PST. On-sale is 10am PST Friday 12/15. Pre-sale code: CREAM”
The collective will perform over the Super Bowl weekend on February 9th and 10th, followed by another two concerts on March 22nd and 23rd. Pre-sale tickets are already available to be purchased. General ticket sales will be released on December 15th at 10am Pacific Standard Time.
In an interview with The New York Times, one of the group’s founders, RZA (real name Robert Diggs), unveiled what fans can expect from the crew’s residency, stating, “Hip-hop is rich in its content and what it offers creatively to an audience.”
He continued, “[I want] to put it on flagpoles to show that hip-hop can go where any other art form has gone before. I think the art form has evolved.” RZA was one of the three founders of the nine-piece ensemble alongside his cousins GZA and Ol’ Dirty Bastard.
Continuing his explanation about hip-hop as an art form, Diggs disclosed Wu-Tang want to “add to [the] hub” of creativity in Las Vegas, stating, “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.”
2023 has been a big year for The Wu-Tang Clan and earlier this year, the mayor of New York, Eric Adams, named November 9th the ‘Wu-Tang Clan Day’ to mark the 30th anniversary of the group’s 1993 debut album, Enter The Wu-Tang: (36 Chambers).
