BRISTOW, Va. – While Blink-182 will likely still be coming to Virginia Beach, comments captured by Twitter users show Lil Wayne saying he may leave the tour because he isn’t used to the crowd size – something that seems to be not big enough for him.

“Please forgive me, but I am so not used to performing to a crowd and there’s not too many… you know, like, still – that’s not my swag,” said Wayne at the Bristow concert Thursday night. “I’m not sure how long I’m going to be able to do this tour,” he continued, “but make some noise for Blink-182 for including me anyway. This might be my last night, though – let’s go.”

Wayne also reportedly left the stage fairly early into his set, according to Brooklyn Vegan and multiple users on Twitter.

He and the band are scheduled to come to the Veterans United Home Loans Amphitheater in Virginia Beach on Saturday, July 20.

While neither the rapper nor Blink-182 have commented on his remarks, many on social media expressed frustration about what went down at the Bristow show:
