Rapper Lil Wayne rises from the dead for 2023 tour with stop in Houston
Rap icon Lil Wayne's 2023 "Welcome To Tha Carter Tour" will make a stop in Houston at House of Blues on May 2.
The 28-city spring tour, announced January 31, kicks off on April 4 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, lasting for a little more than a month before wrapping up in Los Angeles on May 13.
He plans three stops in Texas. In addition to Dallas, Lil Wayne will also perform in Dallas at House of Blues on Wednesday, May 3 and at Stubbs Waller Creek Amphitheater in Austin on May 4.
The always-busy rapper, whose most recent album was 2020's Funeral, named the tour after his series of five albums called Tha Carter. There are rumblings that Tha Carter VI and another album, I Am Not a Human Being III, will both be released in 2023, but no official release date has been announced for either.
The five-time Grammy Award winner is nominated for three Grammys at this year's ceremony on Sunday, February 5, for collaborating on DJ Khaled's song "God Did." He will also receive the prestigious Global Impact Award at The Recording Academy’s Black Music Collective pre-Grammy event, given for his personal and professional achievements in the industry.
Tickets for the tour go on sale on at 10 am Friday, February 3 at Lilwayneofficial.com
