The Final Lap Tour is being announced by 50 Cent
50 Cent is going on tour, so get ready to feel like you’re back in “In Da Club.”
The 47-year-old “Candy Shop” rapper made the announcement earlier this week that he will embark on a global tour to celebrate the 20th anniversary of his debut album, “Get Rich or Die Tryin’.”
The first leg of the Final Lap Tour will take place in Amsterdam on September 28 and the second in Salt Lake City on July 21. New dates for Asia, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand will be announced.
“You’ve waited long enough! THE FINAL LAP TOUR celebrating GET RICH OR DIE TRYIN’ – 20 YEARS LATER,” he wrote on Instagram Thursday, in part.
Get excited, 50 Cent fans! The rapper will perform tracks that have not been performed live in decades alongside his most popular hits. With Busta Rhymes and Jeremih as special guests, the tour will also tap into that sweet hip-hop nostalgia.
Fans can register for a verified fan presale now through Sunday. The people who are chosen to get an access code will actually want to take part in the presale on May 10. On Ticketmaster.com, a general sale will begin on May 12 for a limited number of tickets.
Recently, the “21 Questions” rapper uncovered that he is turning the 2002 film 8 Mile — which is a semi-autobiographical take on Eminem’s life — into a TV show during an appearance on BigBoyTV.
“I’m gonna bring his 8 Mile to television,” he revealed, adding that Eminem, 50, is on board to assist with the show’s production.
“It’s gonna be big. I’m working. I ain’t got no duds. I’m batting 100,” the rapper said after being asked about the show. “I think it should be there for his legacy because it’s important to me that they understand it.”
The rapper claims that the project will depict Eminem’s early years and provide a “backstory” for the movie. He likewise expressed a desire for the show to share Eminem’s story with a new audience.
In the mean time, the rapper made a surprise appearance during the 2022 Super Bowl Halftime Show performance with Dr. Dre, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar and Snoop Dogg.
