Amphitheaters were engineered by the always-innovating Romans so that the public could witness philosophers showing off their debating skills, getting visibly frustrated, and then settling arguments with break-dance battles. See the denouement Boethius dreamed of with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $39, you get two tickets to Lil Wayne's I Am Still Music tour at Jiffy Lube Live in Bristow on Saturday, July 16, at 7 p.m. (up to a $131.50 value before fees, or up to an $160.30 value online, including all ticketing fees). Seats are in the 300 levels, and are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis upon ticket pickup at Will Call. Customers must redeem their Groupons at the same time to sit together.
Running off the infectious sonic fumes from his I Am Not a Human Being album and upcoming full-length Tha Carter IV, Lil Wayne lands his spaceship for a speaker-blowing stop on the extended leg of his summer tour. The Grammy winner touts an impressive curriculum vitae punctuated by CEO status, unabashed genre-crossing, and standout lyrics woven together with sagacious metaphors. Although Tunechi fans can anticipate a high-octane performance rife with hit singles as well as mixtape favorites, the tour's white-hot opening acts acclimate concertgoers with equal parts R & B silk, rap grit, and synth-powered spunk. Frequent Lil Wayne collaborator and Miami boss Rick Ross partners with breakout diva Keri Hilson, club-bangers Far East Movement, and velvet-voiced Lloyd for a hard-hitting evening that rivals at-home puppet shows outfitted with homemade pyrotechnics.
