Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs has slowed the roll on his Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour for one week, to recover from shoulder surgery. The rapper and business mogul announced that the epic tour will kick off September 1st in Chicago instead of the original date August 25th in Columbus, OH, according to the CBS Los Angeles.
A spokesperson for Combs told AP that the delay will allow the Bad Boy founder “the much needed time he needs in order to recover and give fans the incredible stage experience they have come to expect from a Puff Daddy production.”
The Family Reunion Tour will feature Combs performing with Lil’ Kim, Mase, Faith Evans, French Montana, the Lox, 112, Mario Winans, Total and Carl Thomas.
Puff Daddy started celebrating Bad Boy Records’ 20th anniversary at the 2015 BET Awards with a 20-minute medley featuring a dozen artists that have been on his label from the past two decades.
Last week, Combs released the Bad Boy 20th Anniversary box set, an 80-track compilation set spanning the label’s 20-year legacy with tracks from Puff Daddy, the Notorious B.I.G., Janelle Monae and more.
