Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour delayed a week by Puff Daddy’s shoulder surgery
A bad shoulder has put the Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour on hold, but only for a week, according to the Associated Press.
Bad Boy rapper and label exec Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs is recovering from shoulder surgery and needs the extra time “to recover and give fans the incredible stage experience they have come to expect from a Puff Daddy experience,” a spokesman for Combs told the AP on Friday.
The tour, which also features Lil’ Kim, Faith Evans, French Montana, Mario Winans and other Bad Boy Records acts, was to begin Aug. 25, and is now slated to start on Sept. 1.
The Los Angeles-area stop had been slated for Oct. 4 at the Forum in Inglewood. New dates for the full 25-city tour have not been announced, but the opening show in Columbus, Ohio, has been reset for Sept. 1.
In conjunction with the tour, Bad Boy last week released a five-CD retrospective “Bad Boy 20th Anniversary Box Set” containing 80 tracks also including label stars such as the Notorious B.I.G., Maze, Shyne, Nelly, Yung Joc, Danity Kane and Janelle Monae.
