Puff Daddy, Lil' Kim and Sheek Louch part of Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour

Puff Daddy’s Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour Dates Announced: Faith Evans, Lil’ Kim, Sheek Louch on Board

Puff Daddy has no intention of retiring does he? The Hip Hop entrepreneur just announced the Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour on the heels of showing rehearsal footage for the upcoming two-day Bad Boy Reunion Show in Brooklyn. According to Rolling Stone, 20 years of Bad Boy artistry will be onstage this fall and it will be a massive success.

In a clip posted on Twitter on Sunday, Sean Combs announced the upcoming reunion tour news as if it was something you would have to anticipate by blasting the news with the hashtag #BADBOYFamilyReunionTour.

The official Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour announcement came this morning on the official site with tour dates, featured guests, and how to purchase the tickets for what is guaranteed to be a monetarily successful venture. The North American leg of the 24-city tour begins August 25 in Columbus, Ohio, at the Schottenstein Center, and ends October 8 in Oakland, California, at the Oracle Arena.

Fans are already expressing their excitement over Sean Combs taking the Puff Daddy and the Family Show lineup on an extended Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour. In addition to Puffy, the other artists include Lil’ Kim, Faith Evans, Mase, French Montana, 112, Total, The Lox, Carl Thomas, Mario Winans, other featured guests.

“This isn’t just a concert– this is a moment in hip hop and R&B history. The family and I are so excited to welcome fans into this once in a lifetime experience. This tour is 20 years in the making, and is a celebration of the hits and the Bad Boy lifestyle. The Bad Boy Family has set the standard for concert excellence, and this tour will be a testament to that!”

In a few short months, 20 years of Hip Hop and R&B history being on stage performing hits like “Mo Money Mo Problems,” “Only You,” “Money, Power, Respect,” and “Crush on You,” while taking fans down memory lane.

Lil’ Kim may be a little harder to recognize thanks to the shocking physical transformations she has undergone in this time frame. The opportunity to see her spit out her classic, profanity-laced lyrics in this new incarnation will be worth the price of admission.

In the meantime, the Bad Boy Reunion show is going down this weekend, May 20-21, at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn with pretty much the same lineup as the upcoming Bad Boy Reunion Tour. If you grew up listening to classic 90s R&B and Hip Hop from these musical heavyweights, this is a “can’t miss” opportunity, even if it means travelling out-of-state to witness it.

Complex reported earlier this month that the wealthy music producer promised to retire after his seventh and final album, No way out 2, is released to give acting all of his creative energy. Perish the thought or start adjusting to the idea that this may be the last time you see Puff Daddy onstage. Should we be calling this the “Puff Daddy Retirement Tour” instead of the Bad Boy Reunion Tour?

“I’m going to put my last album and devote 100 percent of my time to doing films.”

If the reunion tour goes well, will a European leg be added on? And, if so, will it delay Puff Daddy’s retirement plans? Time will tell. In the meantime, fans have something to look forward to this fall. How do you feel about the upcoming Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour? Sound off in the comment section below.
