Lil Wayne Pre-Sale Tour Tickets Sell Out in 30 Minutes
Lil Wayne fans aren’t messing around when it comes to snatching up tickets to his I Am Still Music tour. Aside from camping out overnight to be first in line to purchase tickets, a pre-sale for Weezy’s tour stop at the Nassau Coliseum in Long Island, New York sold out in just 30 minutes, while his performance at The Bryce Jordan Arena in State College, Penn., sold out in one hour.
Fans scooped up just over 11,000 tickets to see Wayne and his Cash Money/Young Money family hit the stage in New York on March 27 and 10,000 tickets in Pennsylvania on March 30. Following his release from prison last November, the Grammy winner has been treading lightly on the music tip, only releasing a handful of tracks, including the well-received single ’6 Foot 7 Foot,’ off his long awaited ‘Tha Carter IV’ album. The New Orleans native is said to be releasing the album sometime this year.
Last month, Wayne announced that he would partake in the 25-city tour beginning March 18, in Buffalo, N.Y., at the HSBC Arena. The trek which also features Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, Travis Barker and MIxmaster Mike includes stops in Washington, D.C., New Orleans, and Phoenix. For ticket information visit Ticketmaster.com.
