Hot Tickets: Lil Wayne, Fleet Foxes, Loretta Lynn
After being released from prison in November, rapper Lil Wayne is ready to take on the world, and he's doing it in a big way, bringing an all-star lineup with him on tour. With Weezy at his March 20 show at 1st Mariner Arena will be Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, Travis Barker and Mixmaster Mike. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster and cost $47.75 to $248 for a VIP package. While in jail, a Web site called "Weezy Thanx You" sprung up so the rapper could communicate his appreciation for his fans. He's now delivering on that in spades.
