Another one of those laws that shouldn’t be needed – common sense, right?

Apparently not.

So here’s the scoop – Lil Wayne’s excuses as to why he would not perform in Rochester and Boston are essentially bullshit. Why would Wayne not comply with rules in two big media markets, yet follow all the rules in Wilkes-Barre, PA?

Money.

Weezy pulled in a quick $210,000 for last night’s show at the Wachovia Arena. Whereas the shows in Rochester and Boston were for radio stations, booked by the labels. “Radio shows” usually pay expenses and not much more. Some stations will work out a deal where the headlining artist receives a cut or all of the door – but that is rare.

Just to furthen the point – Weezy complained of a subpar soundsystem in Rochester. Yet, the system was good enough for other performers that night, including T-Pain and Ludacris.

In Boston, the story revolved around mandatory medal detectors. My source who works security at Wachovia Arena told me Wayne would be subjected to the same preresequites to enter the venue in PA. Apparently, he did.

BTW – After leaving Wachovia Arena with 2 groupies, Weezy and company made a quick stop at the local Denny’s. Wayne himself did not enter, instead sending his manager to snag a menu, place his order, and bring his food back to the bus.

so i took yesterday (monday) off. i drove back early sunday morning to niagara falls, after our first saturday night inside colosseum night club (which btw, went amazing).

i spent easter with my dad. we ate at fortuna’s, an amazing italian restaurant in the falls. after digesting, we followed dinner up with a few drinks at wine bar on third.

monday was spent with my girlfriend. we drove to rochester, where i appeared in court for a speeding ticket. i pled guilty to a lesser charge, although personally, i thought i had a chance to be let off all together. still, i caught a break.

after driving back down i-90, ang and i grabbed burgers at shorty’s, a new sports bar in niagara falls that is owned by a good friend of mine. coincidentally, it’s also the same location where governor eliot spitzer made the last infamous call to the emporer’s v.i.p. club as “client 9.”

only in the falls.

nice to spend a couple days back in the birthplace, although i won’t front, i wish i could’ve stayed longer. not that i miss western new york that much, or hate nepa, but i won’t have a chance to return home until july. not complaining, just sayin’.

back on the grind here tonight… i’m giving away the ultimate lifehouse fan package. pair of tickets, meet and greet passes, and a signed guitar. that’ll be on the docket for just past 9.
