The New Orleans legend announced the 28-city date tour in detail this morning, which kicks off on April 4th in Minneapolis. After that, Lil Wayne will hit major cities across America including Chicago, Detroit, Boston, New York, Philly, Atlanta, and Los Angeles. Other dates include stops in cities such as St. Louis, Houston, Cleveland, and more. Wayne will also head north of the border for a sole show in Toronto on April 12th.

It appears that Lil Wayne will grace more intimate settings during the upcoming tour. Though he’s known to sell out arenas and stadiums, Wayne will perform in legendary venues like Minneapolis’ The Fillmore and Harlem’s Apollo Theater, which have 1,500 capacity.

The upcoming tour suggests that Wayne has new music coming soon. Wayne’s previously announced both Tha Carter VI and Dedication 7 would drop soon. During the Young Money Reunion in Toronto, Wayne revealed that the pre-order for the next installment of Tha Carter series is live. Considering the name of his forthcoming tour is “Welcome To Tha Carter,” the follow-up to Funeral could be coming soon.

However, Wayne and DJ Drama indicated that Dedication 7 would arrive in 2021. However, neither have provided a solid update since then.
