Fresh off the Sundance premiere of their upcoming Showtime documentary Wu-Tang: Clan Of Mics & Men, the Wu-Tang Clan announced they will bring “36 Chambers 25th Anniversary Celebration Tour” to Michigan Lottery Amphitheatre at Freedom Hill as part of the Fifth Third Bank Concert Series on Friday, May 31 at 7:30 p.m.
Twenty-five years ago, the Wu-Tang Clan changed hip-hop music forever. Bursting onto the music scene with the release of ‘Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)’, the group quickly became recognized for its innovative beats and clever lyrics, as well as the diverse personalities and talents that make up its nine-member hip-hop group. The Wu-Tang Clan has released seven gold and platinum studio albums with worldwide sales of more than 40 million albums. The release of their debut album in 1993 songs like “C.R.E.A.M” and “Protect Ya Neck” introduced hip-hop pioneer, The RZA, as a groundbreaking hip-hop craftsman.
The Wu-Tang Clan kicked off their 25th anniversary on Good Morning America, performing “Protect Ya Neck.” November 9th, the day of the anniversary, was declared "Wu-Tang Clan Day" in Staten Island, a testament to their influence in New York.
