Iconic rapper and label owner, Lil Wayne, in the midst of a high charting radio single “6 Foot 7 Foot” and his recently released 9th studio album I Am Not a Human Being, has announced details and dates for his 2011 North American tour, the I’m Still Music tour.
Lil Wayne's I’m Still Music tour, produced by Live Nation/Haymon Ventures, will make stops at arenas throughout North America, including an L.A. – area performance at Honda Center on Saturday, April 23rd. Tickets for this show will go on sale Saturday, February 19th at 12 noon, and will be available at LiveNation.com, select Live Nation and Ticketmaster retail outlets and Charge-By-Phone (800.745.3000).
The Multi-platinum and Grammy award winning recording artist, who has sold over 10 million records and whose multi-platinum 2008 album, The Carter III, shattered records by selling over one million copies in its first week of release, will be joined by protégé Nicki Minaj, a top selling rapper signed to his Young Money imprint, whose critically acclaimed debut album Pink Friday has since gone Platinum. In addition to main support act Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne will also be joined by hip hop heavyweight Rick Ross, whose latest effort, Teflon Don, debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 and has since been certified Gold. Rounding out the stellar lineup is Travis Barker, who will open all dates on the Live Nation / Haymon Ventures produced tour. Travis Barker will release his album Give the Drummer Some on March 15th, with the first single at radio now.
A dynamic performer celebrated for his endless energy and high voltage live show, Lil Wayne’s I Am Music II tour promises to be his strongest to date. The I’m Still Music tour follows Lil Wayne’s unparalleled touring success in the 2008 – 2009 year during which Lil Wayne performed 78 headline shows across domestic arenas and amphitheatres in 9 months, grossing over $40 million USD, making him hip hop’s most profitable touring artist.
Lil Wayne recently released “6 Foot 7 Foot”, the first single off his heavily anticipated The Carter IV album, slated for a Spring 2011 release via Young Money/Cash Money/Universal Motown. Produced by Shondrae 'Bangladesh' Crawford and featuring a verse from Young Money newcomer Cory Gunz, "6 Foot, 7 Foot" is a dynamic exercise in word play and flow in which Lil Wayne rhymes over a sample of Harry Belafonte's "Banana Boat Song (Day-O)."
