The (somewhat) surprising announcement came on Monday (May 6) after fans reportedly suspected a joint tour was in the works. "Stok'd to be hitting the road this summer with blink-182 and special guest Neck Deep," Weezy wrote along with a video of himself performing a mashup of his 2008 hit, "A Milli" and blink's "What's My Age Again?"
The New Orleans native also revealed the pre-sale starts tomorrow at 10 am and tickets will be available for everyone on Friday (May 10). The dates for the North American tour were also released and there are several stops where Wayne will be absent, as noted by asterisks.
Starting June through September, fans can expect to catch both acts in cities like Hartford, CT, Virginia Beach, VA, West Palm Beach, FL, and Detroit, MI. The full list of dates is listed ahead.
Meanwhile, if Wayne's connection to blink-182 seems out of place, one would just have to look at his longtime friendship with blink's lead drummer Travis Barker. In 2011, Wayne and Barker collaborated on "Can a Drummer Get Some" off of Barker's first solo LP, Give the Drummer Some.
Last year, Wayne released his oft-delayed album, Tha Carter V, to rave reviews. The album was originally scheduled to be released in 2014 but was pushed back after personal and legal disputes with Cash Money's CEO Birdman.
