Legendary hip-hop collective Wu-Tang Clan are no strangers to history-making undertakings and starting in February, they’ll make more.

The Wu is bringing the power of Shaolin to the Strip with “Wu-Tang Clan: The Saga Continues … The Las Vegas Residency,” the first-ever Vegas residency for a hip-hop artist.

The first two shows at The Theater at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas are slated for February 9 and 10 — the Friday and Saturday before Super Bowl LVIII at Allegiant Stadium. The next two shows are planned for March 22 and 23, the opening weekend of the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament (that’s the formal name of what is colloquially known as “March Madness”; the opening weekend is historically one of the busiest in Sin City).

More shows will be announced.

“This residency is more than a concert – it serves as a tribute to their prolific careers as individuals and as the most storied group in hip-hop history,” Virgin said in a release.

Tickets for the AEG-promoted shows are on sale via AXS.

Wu spent the summer with Nas and De La Soul on the “NY State of Mind Tour.” Highlights submitted to Pollstar Box Office include a $974,974 gross on 10,072 tickets at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena (an average price of $96.80) and a $1,456,270 gross at a 12,996-ticket sell-out at Barclays Center in Brooklyn
