Hype for Lil Wayne’s Welcome To Tha Carter tour built up quickly after its Tuesday announcement, and tickets sold out even quicker. As such, many fans took to social media to share their experiences trying to get tickets, but mostly to vent about the struggle. It’s not surprising, either, given Weezy’s legend status and his recent high-profile acknowledgements in the game. Furthermore, he’s one of the most enduring, continuously prolific, and influential MCs still spitting today. In fact, he appeals to so many that some fans jokingly (or not) took aim at the younger generation.
“IF YOU WERE BORN IN A YEAR THAT STARTS WITH A 2 GIVE ME YOUR GODDAMN LIL WAYNE TICKET THIS TOUR WAS NOT MEANT FOR YOU,” one Twitter user practically screamed in a post. Moreover, according to fan testimonies, tickets sold out for shows in anywhere from five to ten minutes. Although this and tours like Beyoncé’s shows will astound, one can’t help but lament how many fans these legends have. Fortunately, most of the conversation online saw people share frustration and not flaunt their seats unless they were selling them.
Another fan tweeted, “Really waited through a 10 minute queue for Lil Wayne tour to be sold out.” However, some fans pointed out that the venues themselves weren’t massive. A tweeter inquired, “Yeah why are the venues for Lil Wayne’s tour so small?” “Maybe I’m showing my age, but surely he can still pack out an arena? No?” Whereas some fans believe he deserved larger stages, other called out that he’s not stopping by his native New Orleans. “Beyoncé has a show in New Orleans for her tour but not Lil Wayne,” one fan pointed out.
Meanwhile, Tunechi’s always been a legend, but it feels like he built up much praise ahead of this tour. For example, the Recording Academy’s Black Music Collective recently honored him with the Global Impact Award. Alongside Missy Elliott, Dr. Dre, and Sylvia Rhone, the Grammys recognized his indelible contributions. “I want you all to know that I don’t get honored,” he said during his acceptance speech. “Where I’m from, New Orleans, you’re not supposed to do this.” Still, stay tuned to HNHH for the latest on Lil Wayne, his legacy, and whether his tour expands given demand.
