Lil Wayne is currently co-headlining a tour with blink-182, but ahead of his set on Friday, the 36-year-old rapper called-off his performance due to illness.
The gig was slated to take place at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa, Florida. He told fans just a few hours before the show that he was feeling “under the weather” and wouldn’t be able to make it to the show, promising to “make it up” to those who were headed out to see him.
Immediately, people began to ask about refunds, questioning why he waited so late to let people know about his cancelled set, as many were already in route.
The venue and Wayne did not comment about refunds, as Wayne was opening the show for blink-182.
Wayne made headlines earlier this month after he told the audience at a gig in Virginia that he wasn’t sure if he could continue the co-headlining tour with blink-182, expressing his disappointment with the small crowd. During the show, he said that he’s not used to performing to a small crowd and left the set early, however, the next day, he assured fans that he wouldn’t be quitting the tour after all, writing that he’s having “too much fun” with blink-182.
The pairing is unlikely; blink-182’s angsty, punk-rock hits differ immensely from Wayne’s spit-fire raps. However, the show will go on as both artists will head to Jacksonville next on Monday, followed by gigs in cities like Phoenix, Los Angeles, Portland, Detroit, and Chicago. They’ll wrap-up the outing mid-September in Cincinnati.
