Extra Lil Wayne show

2011-11-23 14:40

Johannesburg hip-hop fans are up for the treat of a lifetime following an announcement today that rap star Lil Wayne will perform an extra night in the City of Gold.

Initially billed to perform in the country’s three major cities – Cape Town’s Bellville Velodrome on December 7, Johannesburg’s Coca-Cola Dome on December 9 and Durban’s Wavehouse on December 11 – the “I Am Still Music tour” star will be performing an extra night in Johannesburg on December 10.

This follows an unprecedented demand for tickets after fellow rapper Rick Ross announced he will be joining the tour.

This prompted local promoter Canoc Productions to extend the Joburg leg of the show to accommodate the rapper’s eager legion of fans.

“Enthusiastic fans quickly snapped up the additional 2000 tickets for the December 9 show,” Canoc Productions said.

The production house also announced a “surprise” performance by a yet unnamed artist.

Lil Wayne will be joined on stage by some of the hip-hop’s world acclaimed acts Corey Gunz, Gudda Gudda, Mack Maine, Shannel, T-Streets and Jae Millz.

Wayne (28) a Grammy award-winning rapper is considered hip-hop’s biggest selling artist.

His platinum debut album in 1999, Tha Block Is Hot, sold more than one million copies in the US.

Tickets are available at Computicket. Golden circle tickets cost R750 while others are R600 and R400.
