Wu-Tang Clan, Coachella 2013 — Group Steals Show at Music Festival
The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival saw a handful of amazing performances over the weekend, but few could top the Wu-Tang Clan, who reunited on stage last night at the festival’s Outdoor Theatre.
“No disrespect to none of y’all,” Raekwon said on stage. “But we came to steal this shit tonight.”
And indeed they did, performing a variety of songs from their group catalog as well as a handful of solo hits. A tribute to Ol’ Dirty Bastard included renditions of “Shimmy Shimmy Ya” and “Brooklyn Zoo,” respectively.
The Clan was jovial on stage and the chemistry amongst the members seem to plainly evident. On Friday (April 12), they announced that their new LP, A Better Tomorrow, will be released in July. It’s their first album as a complete group since 2007’s poorly-received 8 Diagrams.
Ghostface’s new album, Twelve Reasons to Die, is in stores tomorrow and the group will be back at Coachella for its second performance next weekend.
