Lil Wayne Cancels Canadian Tour Dates

Lil Wayne has canceled two dates in Canada on his “America’s Most Wanted Music Festival” tour.

In a statement released Tuesday, Wayne’s camp blamed the cancelation on an unspecified illness.

“Lil Wayne, due to illness, was advised by his doctors to cancel the Young Money Presents: America’s Most Wanted Music Festival tour stops in Western Canada. The tour, headlined by Lil Wayne featuring Young Jeezy, Soulja Boy, Pleasure P, and Jeremih, was scheduled to come through Vancouver and Edmonton on August 17th and 18th. Wayne, his band and crew arrived in Canada with full intention of performing but were forced to cancel the dates due to doctor-mandated rest. Young Money Presents America’s Most Wanted Music Festival will continue their tour routing as planned and extends an apology to the fans for the cancelation.”

The tour is scheduled to resume on Thursday, August 20, in Englewood, Colo.
