Bad Boy Reunion Show Sells Out in Seven Minutes
"Breaking News! We sold out the Barclays Center in seven minutes!" Puff Daddy wrote on Instagram. "May 20th we're gonna do it big for B.I.G. in Brooklyn! Thank you to everyone who purchased tickets! It's going to be a party!"
The reunion show, which has been dubbed One Night Only, will bring together some of the biggest artists from Bad Boy Records past and present as well as a few special guests. Faith Evans, Ma$e, The L.O.X., Lil Kim, Total, 112, Mario Winans and French Montana are among the artists who will be performing at the Barclays Center. Outside of the Bad Boy Family, Jay Z and Mary J. Blige are also scheduled to appear at the event.
"This isn’t just another concert—this is hip-hop history,” Puffy said in a press release for the reunion concert. “The Bad Boy Family includes some of the biggest names in music and songs that helped define a whole generation of music. Also, we are celebrating one of the greatest of all time—Notorious B.I.G. This will be a night to remember. I can’t wait to see you all there."
There has also been talk of a Bad Boy reunion tour, though nothing has been confirmed on that front. Puff Daddy simply hinted at the possibility during a recent appearance on DJ Khaled's We The Best Radio.
