Lil Wayne Announces 3 Tours & New Music For This Year

Lil Wayne Announces 3 Tours & New Music For This Year

Lil Wayne has took to his official social media accounts Twitter and Instagram to announce 3 new tours this year, as well as new music.

One of these tours is the “Kloser 2 U Tour“, which we already saw the dates for on Monday. The other 2 tours are “Kampus Krash Tour” and “World Wide Weezy Tour”, which also both make sense as we’ve previously been seeing dates for upcoming Weezy shows at universities and overseas.

The most important news in my opinion is that Tunechi has confirmed himself he will be releasing new music this year. Let’s hope it’s soon!

Lil Wayne 2008-2009 Tours Gross $42 Million

The final numbers are in for Lil Wayne‘s 2008-2009 North American touring, and it looks like the rapper will have the highest grossing hip-hop tour of the year — and the most lucrative rap jaunt that Billboard has ever tracked.

Seventy-eight Lil Wayne headlining arena and amphitheater concerts in North America from Dec. 14, 2008, through Sept. 6, 2009, grossed approximately $42 million and drew nearly 804,000 fans, according to Lil Wayne tour producer and tour business manager Shawn Gee, who also serves as president of music and entertainment at Sports & Entertainment Financial Group.

“It’s definitely one of the biggest in the last couple of years,” Gee tells Billboard.com, noting that Haymon Events/Live Nation was the exclusive tour promoter for all of the shows. “Our plan was to prove that Wayne was a viable headlining arena artist.”

Lil Wayne Cancels Vancouver & Edmonton Concerts

Lil Wayne Cancels Vancouver & Edmonton Concerts

Tonight’s Lil’ Wayne concert at GM Place has been cancelled at the last minute.

“The Lil’ Wayne show has been cancelled due to circumstances beyond Live Nation’s control,” the promoter said in a news release on Monday afternoon.

The American rapper last performed in Vancouver in January.

His Edmonton show, scheduled for Aug. 18, has also reportedly been cancelled.

Rumours are flying that rapper got caught up at the Canadian border, but this is purely speculation at this point.

This isn’t the first time Lil’ Wayne has had to cancel a concert in Canada. On June 29, 2008, it was announced that his show at Circa in Toronto and a scheduled appearance in Montreal were cancelled “due to unknown circumstances.”

Shouts to GlobalTVBC and there are even rumors now that Canada wouldn’t let Wayne in the country because he was too high 😮
