Wu-Tang Clan Announces 2024 Las Vegas Residency

Wu-Tang Clan Announces 2024 Las Vegas Residency

It looks like Las Vegas better get ready because the Wu-Tang Clan is going to have a residency starting in February 2024. They are reportedly targeting this month because the city will host its first Super Bowl at this time, according to the New York Times.

All the action starts on Feb. 9-10 at the Theater at Virgin Hotels in Vegas. The show will be called Wu-Tang Clan: The Saga Continues … The Las Vegas Residency. After a break, the group comes back on March 22-23. That will coincide with the beginning of the NCAA college basketball tournaments.

Wu-Tang Clan Have Been In Talks About Residency

According to RZA, the group has been having some conversations about a residency for about five years. Hip-hop turned 50 years old this year. It might be a good time to introduce this to the Las Vegas show scene.

“Hip-hop is rich in its content and what it offers creatively to an audience,” RZA said. He explained the group wants to put the genre “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 also is hopeful that Wu-Tang’s residency opens Las Vegas up to other rappers. “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,” RZA said.

Get ready because tickets go on sale on Friday. More performances will be added over the next few months.

Other members of Wu-Tang Clan include GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa, and Cappadonna. ODB was in the group until his death in 2004.

With hits like “C.R.E.A.M. (Cash Rules Everything Around Me)” and “Protect Ya Neck,” Wu-Tang Clan finished up a tour with Nas.

Group Set Its Plan of Action Way Back In 1993

Way back in 1993, Wu-Tang Clan formed as a collective of separate MCs. They would come together and work while also having individual record deals. In this format, they could then collect royalty checks and sales checks separately.

If they stuck to this format, then everyone in the group would get fantasticly rich individually. As it turns out, this plan of attack worked really well.

What the guys in the group were able to do was develop their own separate styles. Each group member, in time, would be able to find their own path to riches. Wu-Tang Clan was a power-packed group of singers and future producers. The fact that they were able to succeed in their own paths shows the compatibility of the group.
