The group’s debut in Las Vegas

Grammy-nominated hip-hop collective Wu-Tang Clan will embark on their first-ever Las Vegas residency starting Super Bowl weekend, February 9th and 10th.

The group went to X from their residency at the Virgin Hotels Las Vegas theater on Tuesday with the news:

A press release from Virgin Hotels states that the Wu-Tang Clan residency is a tribute to both the success of individual musicians in the collective and “the most storied group in hip-hop history.”

In keeping with the sports theme of “Wu-Tang Clan: The Saga Continues…”, the group will follow up their Sin City residency during March Madness with another show on Super Bowl weekend on March 22nd and 23rd.

The New York Times stated that further dates “will be published in the coming months”. Artist ticket presales for the February and March shows at Virgin Hotels began Tuesday, with general ticket sales beginning Friday at 10 a.m. PST.

After a long awaited time

Staten Island-born Wu-Tang Clan leader, producer and rapper RZA (real name Robert Diggs) told the Just the Las Vegas residence had been in the pipeline for about five years. RZA added that his nine-member group’s Vegas bow was intended, in part, to elevate hip-hop, a genre that celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2023.

“Hip-hop is rich in content and what it offers an audience creatively,” RZA explained. The goal of the Las Vegas shows is to “put the genre up on flagpoles to show that hip-hop can go where every other art form has gone before” and to encourage other hip-hop artists in the gambling capital to appear in the world.

I love the place where there is a center for art.”

RZA praised the Las Vegas entertainment scene, adding, “I love when there’s a center for the arts, and then I love that I can contribute – with my talent and the Wu-Tang Brothers – to that center.” “

According to the Just Reporter Emmanuel Morgan said rap stars often perform at nightclubs and concerts in Las Vegas, but it was “unclear whether a hip-hop group made a traditional appearance.”

Las Vegas stars lined up

Recently voted as by WalletHub the most entertaining city in the USA, Las Vegas is making every move in the entertainment and sports field. Irish supergroup U2 wowed audiences at The Sphere and fellow multiple Grammy winner Beyoncé is rumored to be taking over Bono and co’s residency when it ends in February.

But Wu-Tang Clan’s Las Vegas debut on the same weekend that the Super Bowl is being played at the city’s Allegiant Stadium could be the biggest party of all.
