TeeRoy's 2 Cents:
- Blink-182's rise was a good five to 10 years before Wayne's. How much overlap is there really between the two fanbases?
- You'd think Wayne's love for rock music and guitars would have made him fit right in.
- What is he on? Wayne's been performing for massive crowds for going on two decades. What does he mean he's not used to performing to a crowd?
- He might not have expressed himself clearly but it's pretty obvious that Wayne wasn't feeling the love from a crowd that is probably mostly made up of older Blink-182 fans.
- When the tour was announced, there was talk of a new Lil Wayne album with ticket purchase. Since then, he hasn't dropped or announced any new music.
- If he cancels these dates, it will free Wayne up to pop up at OVO Fest.
- He's trying to say he didn't like playing to a half-empty arena as fans still found their seats and bought their drinks while they waited for the "real headliner" to go on.
- What a baby. The fans that are there paid good money to see you perform. It doesn't matter how many folks showed up -- you owe them a show.
- 50 years ago, Jimi Hendrix once opened for The Monkees. Wayne probably feels kinda like that.

During a performance at Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow, Virginia, Weezy told the crowd, “Please forgive me…but I am so not used to performing to a crowd and there’s not too many, you know, like still, that’s not my swag… I’m not sure how long I’m going to be able to do this tour, but make some noise for Blink-182 for including me anyway… This might be my last night though, let’s go.”
Weezy wound up playing just four songs before walking off stage. There are around 30 remaining dates on the tour. The next show is scheduled for Saturday night in Bangor, Maine. (Billboard)
