2011 Tours To Watch For
Lil Wayne, Kem, Rihanna & Keri Hilson just to START…. 2011 is about to be THAT year. There are so many tours in the making right now and I can tell you that this summer is going to be blissfully full of music and shows!
Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and Rick Ross are the main acts for the “I’m Still Music” tour coming to HSBC Arena on March 18th. That is going to be a good look for Buffalo. Not only is it the first stop on the tour, it’s going to be the biggest Rap Concert to hit the Lo since Jay-Z and Mary J Blige back in 08! Young Money is bound to show out for Buffalo.
Kemis about to show these young boys how it’s done with his new tour kicking off next month in South Carolina. The tour features the never-disappointing Musiq Soulchild and the up and coming legend, Ledisi. May not be coming to Buffalo, but it would definitely worth a road trip!
Bruno Mars & Janelle Monae are teaming up for the epic “Hooligans in Wondaland.” We all know Bruno Mars from B.o.B.’s hit single “Nothin On You” and from his own single “Just The Way You Are,” but Janelle Monae is one to look out for. She’s spunky, jazzy and soulful all in one! If her name sounds familiar, it’s because she performed with Bruno and Bobby Ray (aka B.o.B) at the Grammys this year.
My girl Rihanna is preparing to give us her all in the new tour debuting in B-More, Maryland on June 4th. The tour, “Loud” will bring all the favorites from her “Pon De Replay” days to her new single ”Raining Men” to those classics like “Russian Roulette.” She’ll be in T.O. on June 7th. That’s the closest she getting to Buffalo. I know I’m going!
“Soldier Of Love” singer Sade invites John Legend to join her on tour starting in June! Sade hasn’t been on tour in 10 years so you already know it’s going to be a must-see.
Keri Hilsonis hard at work gettin’ her dancers in check and her voice on point for her tour this spring. With hits like “Turnin Me ON” “Pretty Girl Rock” & “Slow Dance,” a show from Keri would definitely be a great time! There are talks of including new artist Jessie J ( singer of “Casualty Of Love”) on the road as well. Got to show lots of love to Miss Keri Baby!
As you can see, we have a lot of music to enjoy this year and this is only the beginning! Stay locked to WBLK for more updates!
