Saturday To-Do: Lil Wayne

LIL WAYNE
8 p.m., Verizon Arena. $61-$93.96.

After canceling a scheduled March gig at Verizon due to “scheduling conflicts,” Lil Wayne's back on the books at Verizon. And just in time. On Feb. 9, he's scheduled to be sentenced in connection to 2007 gun charges and immediately start serving what's expected to be at least an eight-month prison term. But beyond the farewell angle, who knows how this concert will go? Will we get Lil Wayne the virtuosic rapper? Or, even though “Rebirth,” Wayne's long delayed “rock” record, has been pushed back once again (hopefully to never see the light of day), Lil Wayne the marginal guitar player and terrible vocalist? Or Lil Wayne, the Auto-Tuned ringleader of Cash and Young Money? Verizon cautiously bills the concert as Lil Wayne and “special guests.” Before the tour started, Cash Money head Birdman said it would include all of Cash Money and Young Money, which could mean everyone from rocker Kevin Rudolf, British R&B dude Jay Sean and rap superstar Drake, but could just as well be Lil Chuckee and other people from Young Money you don't care about. I'm betting we'll get a little bit of all those Lil Waynes. Can't wait.
