Puff Daddy Delays Bad Boy Reunion Tour Due to Shoulder Surgery
Puff Daddy has long said that he and his crew can't stop, won't stop but when it comes to starting his Bad Boy Reunion Tour, the label boss has announced a slight delay as he recovers from shoulder surgery. Rather than kicking things off in Columbus, Ohio on Aug. 25, the Associated Press is reporting that the tour will start Sept. 1 in Chicago.
A spokesperson for the rapper said that the extra week off will give him "the much needed time he needs in order to recover and give fans the incredible stage experience they have come to expect from a Puff Daddy production." The Reunion bill is set to include Lil' Kim, Mase, Faith Evans, French Montana, the Lox, 112, Mario Winans, Total and Carl Thomas.
When Puff brought his label's past and present out in Brooklyn's Barclays Center in May, it was certainly a next level event, with special appearances by Jay Z, DMX, Swizz Beatz, Desiigner, Shyne, Nas, Rick Ross and Fabolous throughout the two night stay. While that was Puff playing with home court advantage, it's easy to picture how the show he's imagining will require him to be at full physical health. When he paid a visit to the Today show, offering a glimpse of what would eventually be the Reunion show, it was likewise a proper cause for commotion, Ma$e, 112 and Busta Rhymes all coming out as Puff unfurled an eight song medley.
