Brooklyn, NY – With the “Only Night Only” show in honor of Biggie selling out in a reported seven minutes, Puff Daddy decided to add a second night.
The mogul announced yesterday (April 10) that a second show, this one slated for Biggie’s birthday (May 21), has been added.
“A lot of people that have supported us through this whole journey, fans and everybody,” Diddy says in a video, “so we wanna make sure that New York gets to see the show.”
“If you played yourself the first time, don’t play yourself THIS TIME!!” he added in another post. “Tickets go on sale tomorrow morning at 10AM on LiveNation.com and Ticketmaster.com!!! WAKE UP EARLY!! #BADBOYFamilyReunionTour.”

Puff Daddy & The Family are set to reunite for “One Night Only,” a concert at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, according to a press release.
Set for May 20, the concert featuring Puff Daddy, Faith Evans, Lil’ Kim, Mase, French Montana, Total, 112 and Mario Winans is to celebrate what would have been Biggie’s forty-fourth birthday May 21.
“This isn’t just another concert,” Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs says in the press release. “This is Hip Hop history. The Bad Boy Family includes some of the biggest names in music and songs that helped define a whole generation of music. Also, we are celebrating one of the greatest of all time – Notorious B.I.G. This will be a night to remember. I can’t wait to see you all there.”
Bad Boy Entertainment and Biggie collaborators Jay Z and Mary J. Blige are among the special guests slated to appear at the concert, which will feature music from Bad Boy Entertainment’s 20-plus year history.
The Bad Boy Entertainment family also reunited last year for the 2015 BET Awards.
During a recent interview, Faith Evans says that she’s in the “finishing stages” of The King & I, a collaborative album with The Notorious B.I.G., to whom she was married.
Tickets for “One Night Only” are set to be available on Live Nation’s website starting April 2 at 11 am EST.
