During a show last night in Virginia at Jiffy Lube Live, Lil Wayne cut his set short after just four songs and then threatened to remove himself from the tour. In videos shared online, he looked unhappy before ditching the stage.
“Please forgive me, but I am so not used to performing to a crowd and there’s not too many, you know, like still, that’s not my swag, I’m not sure how long I’m gonna be able to do this tour,” the rapper said before walking off the stage. “But make some noise for Blink-182 for including me anyway.”
However, today, he assured fans that he won’t be leaving the tour after all.
“Yesterday was krazy!” Wayne said in a tweet. “But I want my fans to know I won’t be quitting the tour. I’m having too much fun with my bros blink-182. Bangor, ME See you tomorrow!”
While the pairing is unlikely, it has been successful in the past; back in 2016, the rockers of Fall Out Boy shared a tour with Wiz Khalifa. During the trek, blink-182 is honoring the 20-year anniversary of their breakthrough record Enema of the State, which they have been performing during the tour in-full. The outing continues next tomorrow night in Maine, followed by shows in cities like Houston, Atlanta, New York, and Los Angeles.
