Puff Daddy delays Bad Boy Family reunion tour for surgery
Sean Puff Daddy Combs announced he will delay the start of his Bad Boy Family Reunion tour by one week. The rapper is recovering from surgery following a shoulder injury.
A spokesman for Combs told the Associated Press that he’s taking “the much needed time he needs in order to recover and give fans the incredible stage experience they have come to expect from a Puff Daddy production.” The tour was scheduled to begin on Aug. 25 in Columbus, Ohio and is now scheduled to start Sept. 1 in Chicago.
The tour is expected to be a star-studded affair with performances by Puff Daddy, Lil’ Kim, MASE, Faith Evans, Mario Winans, 112, Total, Carl Thomas, The Lox, and French Montana. The line-up will perform a series of Bad Boy hits in honor of the record label’s 20 years in the music industry.
“The reunion came together because it was just so needed,” MASE told EW in a recent interview. “When you think about hip-hop and music in general, it’s just time to have that good celebration of music. Being with a guy like Puff that’s such a visionary, getting everybody together was an easy task.”
