The Bad Boy reunion concerts that go down in Brooklyn this forthcoming weekend are just the beginning. Sean “Diddy” Combs is taking his show on the road and going on tour this summer and fall with with OG Bad Boy acts including the LOX, Lil’ Kim and Total. 

Today (May 16), Diddy and Live Nation announced the Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour. The tour kicks on August 25 in Columbus, OH at the Schottenstein Center and will hit cities like Detroit, Baltimore, Atlanta and Philadelphia before coming to a close on October 8 in Oakland at the Oracle Arena.

Besides the aforementioned, the roster of talent includes Mase, Faith Evans, Mario Winans, 112, Carl Thomas and French Montana. That’s a lot of hits to perform.

“This isn’t just a concert– this is a moment in hip hop and R&B history,” said Diddy via a press statement.  “The family and I are so excited to welcome fans into this once in a lifetime experience.  This tour is 20 years in the making, and is a celebration of the hits and the Bad Boy lifestyle. The Bad Boy Family has set the standard for concert excellence, and this tour will be a testament to that!”
