Wu-Tang Clan ‘Adding Flavor’ to Las Vegas With ‘Groundbreaking’ Residency

The group closed a co-headlining tour with Nas in late October

Some hip-hop icons are coming to Las Vegas. On Tuesday, Wu-Tang Clan announced that it will be hosting a “Wu-Tang Clan: The Saga Continues…The Las Vegas Residency” at the Theater at Virgin Hotels in Vegas next year.

The group will arrive in Vegas in time for Super Bowl weekend, with their first performances slated for Feb. 9 and 10. They’ll return for a second round of shows March 22 and 23. Tickets for the four concerts are set to go on sale Friday, Dec. 15 at 10 a.m. PT, with presales starting Tuesday at noon PT.

“Vegas has always served as a hub for art, entertainment and good times,” RZA said in a statement. “Wu-Tang is delighted to add our flavor of art and hip-hop into the mix. Virgin + Wu-Tang = Triumph.”

“We are honored to welcome Wu-Tang Clan to The Theater at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas for their historic, first-ever Las Vegas residency,” said Bobby Reynolds, Senior VP of AEG Presents Las Vegas. “This is a groundbreaking moment not only for this venue but for Las Vegas as a whole.”

“We look forward to welcoming hip-hop fans from far and wide to experience this group of legendary talents onstage for these exciting shows over two of the biggest weekends in Las Vegas,” Reynolds added.

The “Saga Continues” residency — named after the group’s 2013 album — comes after Nas and Wu-Tang Clan co-headlined the two-year New York State of Mind Tour. “It was the best-case scenario for a trio of acts that started rapping before some of today’s hottest rappers were even born,” read a Rolling Stone review of the show (which also featured Busta Rhymes). The tour ended in late October in California.
