Wu-Tang Clan have returned to the stage at the world-famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre, where the Colorado Symphony backed them up in subverted style.
This show was the first time Wu-Tang performed on stage since restrictions lifted, and they couldn’t have picked a more perfect location for their comeback. Their setlist celebrated the legendary hip hop group’s spellbinding career as they marauded through a setlist that consisted of over 30 songs.
The majority of their set saw the group assisted on stage with the Colorado Symphony, which added an extra dimension to the Wu-Tang sound. The orchestra has previously played with acts like The Flaming Lips at Red Rocks, and they fitted lithely with the likes of Method Man and Ghostface Killah.
A heartwarming moment came during the set when they paid tribute to their fallen member Ol’ Dirty Bastard and performed ‘Shimmy Shimmy Ya’, with help from the late rapper’s son, Young Dirty Bastard.
Support came from OutKast’s Big Boi, who delivered several iconic tracks from his project with Andre 3000, including ‘Ms. Jackson’, and ‘B.O.B.’.
