Lil Wayne Extends I Am Still Music Tour Into Summer 2011
Missed Lil Wayne as he hit arenas on his first tour since spending a year in prison for gun charges? You’re in luck! After wrapping up his two-month-long I Am Still Music tour at the Bamboozle Festival on May 1, Weezy has decided to stay on the road. The ’6 Foot 7 Foot’ rapper has announced a second leg to the touring hip-hop circus that will hit 40 cities, beginning July 13 in Hartford, Conn.
Things are getting a little bigger the second time around. Rick Ross, a staple of the I Am Still Music tour’s first leg, will stay onboard for part deux, but Young Money’s First Lady Nicki Minaj, who accepted a opening gig on Britney Spears’ summer Femme Fatale tour, will be replaced by ‘Pretty Girl Swag’ singer Keri Hilson. Gone is drummer Travis Barker, but say hello to ‘Like a G6′ rappers Far East Movement and R&B crooner Lloyd, who will each take the stage at the start of the show.
With Weezy releasing ‘Tha Carter IV’ on June 21, expect a boatload of new tunes to show up in the setlists of the second leg of I Am Still Music tour. Select tickets go on sale via LiveNation.com beginning May 20.
