For Lil Kim, the last few years have been a long and uncertain road.
Falling asleep on the job and waking up to find Nicki Minaj dominating her territory and then some, Kimberly has never had to fight harder to protect her once spotless legacy.
So, in a bid to restore that legacy, the icon is readying a tour with Live Nation, set to kick off this year.
Scheduled to launch at Cincinnati’s Bogart‘s, the ‘Return Of The Queen Bee Tour‘ was confirmed on Live Nation‘s official site earlier this week. Yet to be confirmed the Rapper herself, the venture is set to launch June 1st, with more dates to be confirmed in coming weeks.
Tickets for the first show went on sale April 11th and will cost fans $39.36.
It’s always interesting when acts (who aren’t Madonna) think they can sell concert tickets,when they struggle to sell singles for ten time less. Sure, Lil Kim‘s fan base has never been stronger, but how powerful are they outside of
and Nicki Minaj’s Twitter mentions the Twittersphere?
For, as is evident with the commercially impotent singles she stays releasing, Kim fans have no desire to pay for what she’s selling and this is the reason we fail to see the thinking behind the shows and the smarts of her current team.
A team, who if were half as smart as they make out to be, would be angling jobs for Kim outside of music, since that ship has well and truly left the harbor.
Who knows? With Nene Leakes reportedly earning $1 million a season for ‘Housewives‘, putting her on a Reality TV series would be a great way to restore interest in her profile, and add a few extra zeros to her account.
But what do you think?
Would you pay to see Kim live?
