To celebrate 25 years of their groundbreaking debut album Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) the Wu-Tang Clan announce all nine remaining members will play their first ever New Zealand headline shows with the full lineup, this December.
Ghostface Killah, Method Man, GZA, Inspectah Deck, U-God, RZA, Raekwon, Masta Killa and Cappadonna will perform two shows only for New Zealand fans – in Christchurch at Horncastle Arena on Thursday 13th of December, with their second and final New Zealand show on Friday 14th December in Auckland at Trusts Stadium.

Taking their group name from a powerful, mythical kung fu sword wielded by an invincible congregation of warriors, the crew is a loose collective of nine MCs, who formed in 1993 and turned the hip-hop world on its head with their approach to the industry.
2018 marks the 25th annivesary of their album 36 Chambers and this is the first time New Zealand audiences will see the full lineup of the group perform on Aotearoa soil.
