Bad Boy Reunion Tour brings Puffy, Lil' Kim, Mase and others to Amalie Arena

It's a flashback to 1997.

Lace up those Lugz and hold tight to that Kangol — the Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour is coming to Tampa in September.

Revealed today, the ever-entrepreneurial Sean Combs, aka Puff Daddy, is slated to reunite some of Bad Boy Entertainment’s biggest names — including Lil’ Kim, Mase, Faith Evans, Mario Winans, The L.O.X. and more — for a nostalgic night of '90s era hits. The announcement comes on the heels of two sold-out shows this past weekend at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn.

With a total of more than 30 multi-platinum records and over 400 units sold worldwide, Bad Boy was an integral player in hip hop's '90s-era explosion, bringing names like the ones mentioned above along with the late Notorious B.I.G. to televisions and stereos nationwide. Bad Boy became a vestige of what it once was by the late 2000s, but still plays home to artists like Combs, Machine Gun Kelly and French Montana today.

The "Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour" happens Sun., Sept. 11, at Amalie Arena in Tampa. Tickets are $26.25, $56.25, $76.25 and $146.70, and go on sale this Fri., May 20. at 10 a.m. Check the tour site for further details.
