T-Pain announces Las Vegas residency

T-Pain has gotten himself a Las Vegas residency of his very own.

The “Buy U A Drank” rappa-ternt-sanga has teamed up with Resorts World and the Zouk Group to announce that he’ll be headlining his own residency beginning right after the Super Bowl, 2024, at the Zouk Nightclub, as well as the venue’s daytime party spot, Ayu Dayclub.

“Full speed towards 2024,” he said on Instagram on Tuesday (December 19), while tagging the two entities. “I’m proud to officially announce that I’m kicking off my FIRST EVER Vegas residency at @zoukgrouplv and @ayudayclub Catch my very first show on Thu, Feb 8 at #ZoukNightclub – Tickets are live, join me for a ride you won’t forget.”

“2024 is going to be a great year,” he said in a statement to ABC 13. “I’ve been fortunate to have an amazing career and I’ve always dreamed of having a residency of my own. I’ve got some special surprises up my sleeve so Vegas, let’s turn up!” Tickets are available now and can be purchased here.

T-Pain will be in very good company on the Vegas Strip.

In a press release shared on Tuesday (December 12), Jodeci revealed that their residency will take place in the Mandalay Bay Resort at the House of Blues, beginning on March 15, 2024.

General admission sales kicked off on Wednesday (December 13), and Citi cardholders were the first to get access to the tickets.

The name of their show will be “The Show, The Afterparty, The Vegas Residency,” which is a reference to their 1995 super-smash album The Show, The After Party, The Hotel.

House of Blues, Live Nation, and Ticketmaster customers received access to a pre-sale starting Thursday (December 14). Everyone else was able to purchase their tickets beginning on Monday (December 18).

And on that same day, Wu-Tang Clan announced the first four dates for “Wu-Tang Clan: The Saga Continues … The Las Vegas Residency.”

Scheduled to take place at Theater at Virgin Hotels, the February 9–10 dates will coincide with the city’s inaugural Super Bowl weekend, and the March 22–23 shows will host March Madness traffic.

More dates are expected to be announced soon.

“Hip-hop is rich in its content and what it offers creatively to an audience,” founding member RZA told the New York Times about the upcoming run — one he claims has been five years in the making.

“I think the art form has evolved,” he said, adding that his crew is on a quest “to put it on flagpoles to show that hip-hop can go where any other art form has gone before” and “eventually invite more hip-hop artists to come and play in this sandbox with us.”
