Wu-Tang Clan took over Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium on June 9 for the venue’s first ever hip-hop show. The headlining act was celebrating 25 years of its breakthrough LP Enter the Wu-Tang, which has taken the group everywhere from Chicago to Copenhagen this year.

Sharon Sanders, a musician, record producer and a member of one of Nashville’s first hip-hop acts told the NPR, “The Ryman has had to grow up too, and had to grow up into what the city is… You know, the Wu-Tang is ready for the Ryman, but also the Ryman is ready for the Wu-Tang.”

The sell-out show follows a number of recent historic moments for Wu-Tang, such as the release of a four-episode docuseries on Showtime called Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics and Men and the 10-episode Hulu series Wu-Tang: An American SagaWu-Tang Clan’s performance at the Ryman Auditorium adds to the venue’s extensive roster of previous guests which includes the likes of Johnny Cash and Harry Houdini.
