Lil Wayne coming to the Live Nation Amphitheatre in Tampa

With all the star wattage in Tampa this weekend — Alicia Keys, Colin Farrell, Thomas Jane, the Honda Grand Prix — you can see how one of the biggest stars in music slipped in below our radar.

For the second straight year, Lil Wayne dropped in on the Skatepark of Tampa's Tampa Pro event, hanging out while some of the best skateboarders in the world did their thing, all less than a week after he was released from the hospital following a series of serious seizures. Photographic evidence has been scant, but Skatepark of Tampa's Rob Meronek scored a couple of photos on Instagram.

So now we know Weezy is alive and well. And while we missed him this time around, we have good news: Lil Wayne is going on tour, and he'll be coming to Tampa's Live Nation Amphitheatre on July 13, alongside T.I. and Future. Ticket prices haven't been announced, but according to Weezy's website, they'll go on sale April 5.

At least Weezy was kind enough to let us know he's coming this time.

  3. Han Solo movie now in the hands of ... Ron Howard?

    Blogs

    Dear god, I love Ron Howard movies. All of them. Especially Cocoon and Night Shift in the '80s. Particularly The Paper, which is the most accurate comedy I've seen about the newspaper biz. And even Rush, which I was sad to learn was not about the band but instead about Formula 1 …
