Puff Daddy is proving his musical family really ain’t going nowhere, as the entertainer announced Monday he’s joining Lil’ Kim, Faith Evans, French Montana, Mario Winans, and more in 25 North American cities this summer for the Bad Boy Reunion Tour.

The news comes after Puff Daddy and the Bad Boy family announced plans to reunite for two nights at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center May 20 and May 21. Puff Daddy & the Family will visit The Today Show on May 20 to kick off the program’s summer concert series as well.

The tour kicks off Aug. 25 in Columbus, Ohio and runs through Oct. 8 with a stop in Oakland, California. Also performing are The Lox (Jadakiss, Styles P, Sheek Louch), Total (Kima Raynor, Keisha Spivey, Pamela Long), Carl Thomas, Mase, and 112.

“This isn’t just a concert – this is a moment in hip hop and R&B history.” Puff Daddy said in a statement. “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!”

To date, the Bad Boy Entertainment brand has released 38 records that have been certified either platinum or multi-platinum, with over 400 million units sold worldwide.

According to a press release, the Bad Boy Reunion Tour dates are as follows, with a Citi cardmember pre-sale set to begin Wednesday, May 18th at 10:00 a.m. ET ahead tickets going on sale to the general public Friday, May 20 on Live Nation:
