Hip-hop superstar Lil Wayne brought his America’s Most Wanted Tour to MGM Grand Garden Arena on Saturday night, and contributing photographer Steve Spatafore of Las Vegas News Bureau captured the sold-out performance in his photo gallery.
MGM Grand Garden Arena is a familiar venue for Lil Wayne. He was a featured performer at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards with Nicki Minaj and was an audience favorite at the two-night 2012 iHeartRadio Music Festival, both at Grand Garden Arena. Lil Wayne performed on the first night.
Lil Wayne also likes to share the Las Vegas spotlight with Drake, as the two men have appeared together at the Joint and Rehab, both at the Hard Rock Hotel.
