In a history-making event this summer, the Avengers of rap celebrate twenty five years since the release of their ground-breaking debut album Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) – see all nine members bring the ruckus for the very first time in Australia as they play their magnum opus in full for these only Australian shows.
Putting New York back on the map as the hip-hop capital of the world, Wu-Tang Clan created the blueprint for rap’s world domination by pairing RZA’s gritty beats with the wild flow of eight brothers in arms who would prove legendary. A tapestry of martial arts philosophy, street tale poetry and the electric grit of basement rhymes, 36 Chambers finally provided an East Coast answer to the G-Funk domination of Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Tupac.
Through low-riding anthems like 'C.R.E.A.M.' to the pumped up 'Protect Ya Neck', Wu-Tang’s debut album has proved a masterpiece, inspiring the likes of future rap supergroups such as Brockhampton, Odd Future and Kendrick Lamar’s Black Hippy collective.
Now invading the Opera House for two in-the-round Concert Hall performances, prepare to throw up The W and see one of the most revolutionary rap groups ever perform their stone cold classic album for these never-to-be-repeated Australian only shows.
Presented by the Sydney Opera House.
