Lil Wayne announces Las Vegas residency
With select dates at Drai’s Nightclub beginning this month.
In support of his new Funeral album, Lil Wayne is returning to Las Vegas’ Drai’s Nightclub for select performances kicking off this Saturday (March 14). His residency will span until this October, with following performances held on April 23, May 23, June 13 and on Halloween (October 31).
Wayne last performed at the Las Vegas spot in 2018, following the release of his Tha Carter V.
“The crowd at Drai’s has always showed me a lot of love, so it’s only right I come back there with a new residency,” he said of his upcoming dates in a press release. “There’s such a crazy energy whenever I perform there, and the fans already know I’m returning with an incredible show they won’t want to miss.”
Likewise, Drai’s Vice President of Entertainment and Marketing Dustin Drai added, “We’re thrilled to have him back.”
“Wayne is all about the music, you can see it in everything he does,” he continue. “We can’t wait to see what he creates on our stage.”
Wayne has been on the performance warpath as of late, hitting “The Tonight Show,” “The Masked Singer” and the NBA All-Star stages. During a recent interview on MTV’s “Fresh Out,” he explained what prompted him to appear as The Robot on Fox’s “The Masked Singer.”
“I’ve been watching since the first episode, because the first episode, when it came on I knew it was T-Pain,” he said. “Because of that, I told [Mack Maine] to call them. I told him, ‘Let ‘em know I’m a huge fan’ and [that] I wanted to get Nicki [Minaj] on there. Tell ‘em, ‘I would love to get Nicki on there.’ And it came back like, ‘Man, they want you on there.’”
Weezy released his Funeral album back in January. The project featured Big Sean, Lil Baby, 2 Chainz, XXXTENTACION and more and gained Wayne his 82nd Billboard Hot 100 entry.
