Lil Wayne European Tour Not Cancelled, Says Management

NOV. 6: After spending 8 months behind bars at Rikers Island jail, Lil Wayne joined Young Money protégé Drake at the Hard Rock Hotel, Las Vegas for a performance of "Miss Me."

Reports that Lil Wayne has cancelled summer tour dates in Europe due to a rejected U.K. visa application are not true, the rap star's management exclusively tells -- because he never even filed a visa.

"No visa was ever filed, nor were there any tour dates announced, or tickets sold," Wayne's management says in a statement. "Lil Wayne is currently headlining his I Am Still Music Tour across the US and Canada with plans to extend the tour through North America this summer. We hope to bring the I Am Still Music Tour to the UK in the later half of the year."

Reports of a European tour cancellation swirled after U.K. newspaper the Guardian reported that Wayne had applied for a U.K. visa and was denied due to criminal history.

Wayne's North American arena tour wraps with two dates in Canada and a May 1 headlining gig at Bamboozle fest in East Rutherford ,N.J. The rapper will headline the Bonnaroo festival in Nashville, Tenn. with Eminem in June.
