Welcome To Tha Carter Tour tickets go on sale February 3
Rap icon Lil Wayne will be hitting Philadelphia, New York City, Atlanta, and many more cities as he takes on the Welcome To Tha Carter Tour starting this 4/il. American global entertainment company Live Nation made the announcement on Tuesday, ahead of The Recording Academy’s Black Music Collective pre-Grammy event where the rapper will be honored with the Global Impact Award.
“I am so thrilled to honor and celebrate these four giants in the music industry,” stated Recording Academy CEO Harvey Mason Jr. “Last year’s inaugural event was such a highlight during GRAMMY Week and now with Dre, Missy, Wayne and Sylvia there to pay tribute to this year, it’s definitely going to be another night to remember. I continue to be proud of the work of our Black Music Collective as it’s a vital part of what we do here at the Academy.”
Presented by both Rolling Loud and Live Nation, the Welcome To Tha Carter Tour will span across 28 cities nationwide, starting at The Fillmore in Minneapolis, Minnesota on 4/il 4 and ending at The Wiltern in Los Angeles on May 13. Lil Wayne will also be performing in other big cities including Chicago, Detroit, Boston, and Toronto. Expect a special appearance by Drake on that last stop at The 6.
Tha Carter VI and I Am Not A Human Being III are about to be released by 40-year-old Lil Wayne, who most recently released the 2020 album Funeral. Recent cameo appearances by Snoop Dogg, Tinashe, Lena Waithe, LeBron James, and other celebrities included the five-time Grammy winner in the House Party remake.
In the near future, the Young Money Entertainment CEO is expected to release his next albums, Tha Carter IV and I Am Not A Human Being III. His last LP Funeral came out in 2020, so it’s been a good minute since we heard new material from Weezy.
