Lil Wayne smashes through the Marcus Ampitheater in Milwaukee

Our favorite rapper decided to pay Milwaukee a much needed visit last night and put on one hell of a concert. Lil Wayne’s smash hits filled the Marcus Amphitheater and put the crowd on their feet for this long awaited visit from the man himself. Although the performance was epic, overall attendance was disappointing. Lil Wayne is arguably the hottest rapper around and probably one of the best in the world, but surprisingly attendance was not up to par with his superstar talent. There were empty sections toward the rear of the amphitheater and the lawn crowd was non-existent.

For an area that thrives on modern rap, especially Lil Wayne’s lyrics, you’d think this would be the hottest show of the summer season, but unfortunately that was not the case. It could have been the fact that the show was scheduled on a Tuesday night with an 11 o’clock curfew or just maybe due to poor advertising in the Milwaukee area. There was also some speculation that the show could have been intentionally scheduled on a weekday with such an early curfew because of the recent riots and fights at summer events in Milwaukee. Whatever the reason I still would have liked to seen a better turnout.

Lil Wayne’s performance was top notch and judging by the reaction of the crowd I would expect to see him back here very soon.
