Drake and Lil Wayne - Sept. 3
This is the only performance scheduled in South Florida for the tour (it goes to Tampa on Sept. 4),
though Sept. 1-2 are open dates.
Drizzy and Weezy , of course, are not strangers. Lil Wayne's 2009 America's Most Wanted tour was the setting
for Canadian rapper Drake's big breakout, and the two collaborated for the recent single, "Believe Me."
Both also have been fixtures in courtside seats for Miami Heat games, though not lately.
7 p.m. Weds., Sept. 3; $51-$841
Cruzan Amphitheatre, 601-7 Sansburys Way, West Palm Beach

Rock heavyweights Judas Priest, who release the album “Redeemer of Souls” on Tuesday, will bring their world tour to South Florida on Oct. 30 with a performance at Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood.
Tickets are $79, $69 and $59 (all reserved seats) and will be available via a presale 10 a.m. Wednesday at the Hard Rock’s Facebook, Twitter and Google+ pages. Tickets also will be available 10 a.m. Friday at all Ticketmaster outlets, MyHRL.com, and at 800-745-3000.
Judas Priest includes longtime collaborators Rob Halford and Glenn Tipton, founding bassist Ian Hill, veteran Priest drummer Scott Travis and young guitarist Richie Faulkner.
While the band is responsible for some of heavy metal's all¬time classic songs ("Living After Midnight," "Breaking the Law," "You've Got Another Thing Coming"), the tour will offer tunes from the new album, said to be an extra-heavy contrast to the sci-fi experimentation of 2008’s “Nostradamus.”
As Tipton recently told Rolling Stone: "Sometimes in the past we may have come under fire for being too adventurous musically – so we have listened. From start to finish, ‘Redeemer of Souls’ is 13 songs of pure classic Priest metal."
